England will play Ukraine in Poland this afternoon, and as we get the team sheet, former Leicester players Harry Maguire, James Maddison, Ben Chilwell and Harry Kane are all in the starting line-up for Three Lions.

Spurs are currently 2nd in Premier League and the start to the season, without Harry Kane, is absolutely one to celebrate as their Australian coach Ange Postecoglou, makes his mark in a beautiful and charming way.

Ange Postecoglou was an unknown football coach for most when he came to Celtic, in 2021, arriving from Yokohama F Marinos, a team he had coached with success from 2018. Before this time a coach and player solely in Australia.

Ange knows the way to the trophy cabinet as he has won the league in Australia, Japan and Scotland, with Brisbane Roar, Yokahama F Marinos and Celtic. The start at Spurs is one to really look at as it makes no excuses and shows that the man knows his football and is a fan and follower of English football from the early days.

To see James Maddison taking steps so fast and with better players in his environment and at present also shining for England, makes the Spurs project, even without Harry Kane, look very exciting.

For England vs. Ukraine, James Maddison is given a role up front out left, and looks adaptable as he for Spurs has been laying lower in the field, centrally behind Hueng-Min Son, and against Burnley assisting the South Korean as well as scoring one of the goals.

Ange Postecoglou is giving freedom to his players as the pattern of play is seen with four defenders, a midfield area with two laying players and that man in front, and to wide with one single forward to play up front. seen in a model of 4-3-3.

Leicester is said to have sold James Maddison for a bargain £40million, and easy to understand after this wonderful start and getting more and more game time from Gareth Southgate as England are reaching qualification to the 2024 Euro’s.
