Gareth Southgate did not pick any Leicester players for his upcoming games. 28 players are among those being picked as England will meet Italy and Germany.
Some critical voices to be seen as James Maddison again was left out. His relation to Gareth Southgate might not be the best after an incident in the past.
When you have a grand group of players that you trust and has never let you down you will tend to pick those players as long as they perform and win games.
James Maddison have a status at Leicester that makes him very important and without him Leicester is a weaker team. A few minor incidents at Leicester has also seen him in trouble during the pandemic, breaking the rules.
Looking at the names in the England squad you do have a problem to see James Maddison as a clear candidate, if he is to be in direct competition with players in his position.
We do love James Maddison at Leicester, but to be clear the competition for places are massive. You could argue that so many defenders are brought into the set up, but still to get in some sort of starting eleven would be a tough challenge.
Leicester are also at a place in Premier League that will not really trigger any England manager to pick you for a place, but still things can change and no one faults the football talent of James Maddison.
