Probable setback and exciting call-up in front of Manchester United

Harry Maguire and Jamie
Vardy were both taken out in the England squad for their two games
coming up next week. Of course great news, but a injury setback
could set Maguire's inclusion in danger.
Harry Maguire showed last season at Hull that he is a good defender
and that he can cope with Premier League football. But in a
struggling Hull side it was difficult for Gareth Southgate to pick
him, despite Maguire impressing heavilly during the season.
Maguire is born in Sheffield and then both players representing
Leicester City in this England squad is both in the South Yorkshire
city. Jamie Vardy also grew up in Sheffield, and that probably is
something that the city will cherish.
A fun fact is that former Leicester City goalkeeper Gordon Banks
also is born in Sheffield. The former England great, and World Cup
winner, is still the player with most caps for England as a
Leicester City player, playing 37 times while at Filbert Street.
Hopefully both players will make the squad and also be available for
selection on Saturday. Vardy and Maguire will of course be on their

Great news that Leo Ulloa has signed a new deal at the club, despite
not being a first choice. Shows that he has cooled down and knows
that maybe one or two forwards might be on the way out, but if not,
he will get games regularly in the cup competitions.
Last season he played 16 league games, in the PL winning season 29
and in his first for City, 37. In total 82 games in which he has
scored 18 goals. At the time his transfer fee looked like a major
amount, £ 7 million. In two seasons this is now "petty cash".
