James Maddison’s inclusion in the World Cup squad has made every football fan happy and he actually deserved this achievement. He has been giving his best for Leicester City since his debut for them.
Southgate said: “He is playing really well. We think he can give us something slightly different to the attacking players that we’ve got.
“He’s playing as good as any of the attacking players in this country. He is a little bit different to the others. I think we could need that.”
Maddison last played for England in November 2019 while 2020 Wilson’s last international cap came a month before in October 2019.
England XI For 2022 FIFA World Cup
Harry Kane (ST) – The British captain is the most valuable English player in the world with a market value of €100 million. He is the most expected to score a lots of goals for his national team in the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount (Wingers) – Raheem Sterling’s start to this season was not good and Chelsea are seventh in the Premier League. However, he along with his teammate Mason Mount may shine in the World Cup if chosen by Gareth Southgate.
Phil Foden (CM) – The 20-year-old is inarguably one of the best youngsters in the world. His career with Manchester City has been amazing so far. If not in the starting XI, he will surely be included in the squad.
Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice (CM) – Jude Bellingham is now the most valuable player in Bundesliga. His new market value is €90 million, only €10 less than his captain.
It’s a shame to say that West Ham United have done one of the worst start to a season ever. But that should not affect Declan Rice’s place in England national team.
Ben Chilwell and Trent Alexander-Arnold (Wing Backs) – These wing backs have not been in form lately but national duties are different from club competition. Both Liverpool and Chelsea are in quite an unstable shape this season unfortunately.
Fikayo Tomori and John Stones – Fikayo Tomori was one of the reasons behind AC Milan Serie A title reign last season. On the other side, we can say the same for John Stones since he won the Premier League with Man City.
Aaron Ramsdale – The Arsenal goalkeeper did some wonder last season. He made a number of magical saves for his team and so his place in England’s starting XI may change a bit.
Correction: Ben Chilwell has not been included due to injury
