James Maddison Rules Out England Call-up


Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has ruled out any chances of getting selected in the England team. The 21 year old has been called up to the Three Lions U-21 squad who are scheduled to take on Netherlands and Latvia.

The youngster joined the Foxes from Norwich City for a fee of £24m in the summer and has been involved in all four Premier League games. The attacking midfielder was brilliant against Liverpool as he ran the show from the middle of the park but was unfortunate as they failed to knock them off.

His impressive display earned him plaudits and there had been speculations regarding his selection to the England senior team but he failed to make it to Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Despite being not selected the English midfielder is quite happy with his development and wants to continue with the England U-21 side. “I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, I’ve only played four games in the Premier League.

“It is a dream of mine to play for England, it always has been since I was a very young boy.

“Gareth has obviously done a brilliant job. We’ve got such a young squad with so much talent, it’s a good time to be an England player.

“Hopefully I can keep impressing with my club and the U21s and we’ll see where it goes.”
