That cemented Gareth Southgate's exciting crop of youngsters into the hearts of a nation, buoyed by raw talent and hunger to succeed.

There was of course that famous snap too of Maguire, 26, in conversation with his fiancee Fern Hawkins as she congratulated him from the crowd at the Spartak Stadium.

That photo has been used by Maguire's England team-mates on numerous times to poke fun at him, Kyle Walker being one of the chief protagonists.

England went on to beat Sweden in the quarter-finals, where Maguire even managed to score in the game.

But it was heartbreak for the Three Lions in the semis with defeat to Croatia.

Fern and Harry got engaged on February 17, 2018 and have been dating for more than seven years.

She revealed that he had asked her to marry him during a romantic getaway to Paris.

Fern, who like Harry is also from Sheffield, posted on Instagram in February, writing: "On Saturday night, Harry made me the happiest girl in the world & asked me to marry him in the most perfect way."

During the World Cup, she was snapped wearing a stunning engagement ring as she travelled around Russia supporting her husband-to-be.

She was frequently seen in the stands enjoying the Three Lions' stirring performances out in Russia and Harry often sought her out after games to pose for loved-up selfies.

Fern graduated from university with a First Class Honours Bachelor's degree in science and physiotherapy in 2017.

Fern's footballer beau isn't the only target of her affections – her social media posts are littered with tributes to their adorable pet dog Simba.

And now there will be another adorable addition to the family photos.
