England pick Maddison for Euro 2020 qualifiers despite casino visit

England pick Maddison for Euro 2020 qualifiers despite casino visit

Here, the PA news agency looks at the talking points surrounding England's selections.

Leicester City playmaker Maddison was called up by Gareth Southgate in October but withdrew from the squad due to illness, and there was then some controversy when he was pictured in a casino during England's 2-1 defeat to the Czech Republic in Prague.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers defended his player while Southgate said Maddison would have learned there was an increased spotlight on him.

Other former internationals also have their legacy numbers as Robert Barker, England's goalkeeper in the first ever global match in 1872, at number one.

England host Montenegro on November 14 with victory enough to book their spot at Euro 2020.

Grealish has two goals and three assists from 10 Premier League appearances this season and could be the creative spark that England fans crave in the middle of the park.

City's Guardiola says he did not mean to brand Mane a diver
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola attempted to defuse a potential war of words with Liverpool as he arrived in Italy on Tuesday. Before then, though, there had been what Guardiola described as an attempt to "clarify everything for Jurgen".

Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi is also in the squad after shaking off his recent injury worries and joins Tammy Abraham, although there is still no room for Tottenham's Dele Alli.

The Chelsea centre-back was selected for October's global break but could not force his way into team to make his England debut.

In the past, Southgate has cracked the whip when players have stepped out of line, but Maddison's inclusion reflects the difficulty the England manager has in finding a creative talent to complete his preparations for Euro 2020.

Manchester City centre-back John Stones has been recalled, with the likes of Ben Chilwell, Tammy Abraham and Tyrone Mings included for a second consecutive round of global fixtures.

Speaking after announcing the Three Lions squad, Southgate was quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "The squad is a little larger than normal because there were a couple of injury doubts".
