England pick Maddison for Euro 2020 qualifiers despite casino visit

England pick Maddison for Euro 2020 qualifiers despite casino visit”

Gareth Southgate has also decided against recalling Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Eric Dier for the European Qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo.

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

Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Fikayo Tomori all made the list for the Three Lions for the qualifiers.

The legacy number will be printed under the badge for the Montenegro game after special dispensation by UEFA, with England retaining the numbers following the November 14 clash, but with them moved to the collar.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is back in after missing last month's squad having scored four goals in his last four games for Liverpool, including the victor in Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League victory over Genk.

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

Dropped Michael Keane was criticised for his display in last month's 2-1 defeat in the Czech Republic and was axed by Everton for their 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Sunday.

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been brought back into the senior fold, having featured for the Under-21s last month.

England lead Group A with 15 points and need one more point to secure their place at Euro 2020.

Victory over Montenegro at Wembley would seal qualification in what will be England's 1,000th global.

The duo who now play for Premier League club Chelsea snubbed Nigeria for the English national team after they were named in the Three Lions squad that faced Czech Republic in earlier October.
