Former Tottenham coach, Harry Redknapp has called on Gareth Southgate to pick Leicester City midfielder, James Maddison in his final squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that the Three Lions are expected to name final squad for the mundial on Thursday, November 10.
England are placed in Group B alongside Wales, Iran and the United States of America.
However, Rednapp via his column for the Sun, stated that Maddison has done enough to be in the plane to Qatar.
“I am such a huge fan of James Maddison,” Redknapp said in his column for the Sun.
“Him and Jack Grealish are two of my favourite midfielders. But Maddison I feel especially sorry for. He is playing well in a struggling team this season at Leicester.
“Six League strikes tell you he still has an eye for goal and his drive for the team is impressive. In any other country a player like Maddison would be on the plane to Qatar without a moment’s hesitation. He is a clever player but unfortunately for him, there are a lot of them around at present.”
Maddison began his career with Coventry City before joining Norwich City in 2016. He spent the 2016–17 season on loan at Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen. In his first season back at Norwich, Maddison was named in the Championship PFA Team of the Year and EFL Team of the Season. He joined Premier League club Leicester City in 2018.
Maddison was capped by England at under-21 level from 2017 to 2019, and made a single appearance for the senior team in 2019.
