A horrifying video shows the moment Harry Maguire's father broke his ribs on the way to his Euro 2020 final seat, after he was caught in a stampede with several ticketless fans trying to get into Wembley.
Alan Maguire, 56, was going to watch his son, 28, play for England in the tournament final against Italy but suffered horrendous injuries while entering the ground via Gate G, which was the entrance for the Three Lions stars' families.
In a video uploaded by The Sun, the footballer's father could be seen in clear agony whilst trying to wrestle through bodies at the entrance.
Also in the crush of bodies was Maguire's agent, Kenneth Shepherd, before the pair went through to the area where the players' families are seated at Wembley.
Harry confirmed that his father suffered 'a few injuries' whilst trying to get into the ground and was relieved that his children or any other younger family members of his accompanied Alan to the game.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

'It was not a nice experience - it shook him up,' the England international told The Sun. 'But he was fortunate as every game he has been to he has had my nephew or one of my kids on his shoulders.
'My dad was in the stampede. I have not spoken with him too much but I am pleased my kids didn't go to the game. So I'm thankful that did not happen as it could have been a really serious moment.'
'It was scary - he said he was scared and I don't want anyone to experience that at a football match. He was struggling with his breathing afterwards because of his ribs, but he's not one to make a big fuss.'
