Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has sent a message to England manager Gareth Southgate. That James Maddison should at least be call in the World Cup squad.
Maddison had a superb performance in Leicester’s 4-0 home win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday, scoring two goals and providing one assist to win the Man of the Mar. Patch of this game Rodgers was aske about Maddison over the England squad still ignoring calls in September. So it’s highly likely to miss the 2022 World Cup.
“It’s a pity for both the national team and him.” “You have seen his abilities. His performance has been at this level for the past 18 months. James is a great player. I hope he can step into the ufabet team. Because if you want a game creator he is very outstanding He has also improved defensively.” “He’s a wonderful young man. Working with him every day was really fun. He is very concentrate And he has all-round qualities. I think he should at least be name in the team,” Rodgers said.
Maddison was handed a standing ovation when substituted after 85 minutes. A quiet word in the ear and a smile from his manager on his way to take a seat.
Leicester remain rooted in the relegation zone despite their 4-0 thrashing of these not so Tricky Trees and Rodgers does remain very much a man under pressure.
But if Maddison continues this form, and those around him can maintain the standards they set on Monday night, it won’t be long before Leicester are rising up the table once more, led by their overlooked, but not-giving-up pied piper.
