England pick Maddison for Euro 2020 qualifiers despite casino visit

News24 - Friday 8th November, 2019

London - Leicester City midfielder James Maddison was included Thursday in Gareth Southgate's squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo despite his controversial casino visit during the last international break.

Maddison pulled out of the squad to face the Czech Republic and Bulgaria last month because of illness but the uncapped 22-year-old was pictured in a casino during the 2-1 defeat in Prague.

Southgate is eager to see how the Manchester City defender performs in Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at Liverpool.

The Liverpool midfielder has scored four goals in his past four games.
