SOCCER fans are shocked to learn a little-known fact about Manchester United and England star Harry Maguire.
Everyone knows he cost the Red Devils a staggering £80m, some know he started his career at Sheffield United but few know his real name.
Yes, Harry isn’t actually his first name, it’s his middle name.
Maguire’s first name is Jacob, but he passed Harry by at a young age.
The 29-year-old United centre-back also has the affectionate nickname ‘Slabhead’ – thanks to his flying skills as well as his rather large skull.
Fans were amused to discover Maguire’s real name after taking a look at his Wikipedia profile.
One said: “This is your kind reminder that Maguire’s real first name is Jacob.”
Another added: “It sounds so weird.”
And a third said: “Wait til you find out Harry Maguire’s real name is Jacob Maguire.”
Maguire started England’s 6-2 win over Iran on Monday before being substituted due to illness.

But he trained with the rest of the Three Lions today ahead of tomorrow’s second group game against the USA.
James Maddison was the only one of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad to be absent from Thursday’s session.
The Leicester playmaker will miss tomorrow’s clash and could even miss the final group game against Wales.
Maddison has been training alone while continuing to recover from a knee injury sustained in the last Premier League game before the World Cup.
