James Maddison’s inclusion in the World Cup squad has made every football fan happy and indeed he deserved this achievement. He has been at his best for Leicester City since his debut for them.
Southgate said: “He’s playing really well. We think he can give us something a bit different to the attacking players we have.
“He plays as well as any of the attacking players in this country. He’s a bit different from the others. I think we could use that.”
Maddison last played for England in November 2019, while Wilson’s last international of 2020 came a month earlier in October 2019.
England XI for the 2022 FIFA World Cup
Harry Kane (ST) – The British captain is the most valuable English player in the world with a market value of €100 million. He is most expected to score a lot of goals for his national team in the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount (Wingers) – Raheem Sterling’s start to this season has not been good and Chelsea are seventh in the Premier League. However, he, along with his teammate Mason Mount, can shine in the World Cup if he is selected by Gareth Southgate.
Phil Foden (CM) – The 20-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best youngsters in the world. His career with Manchester City has been fantastic so far. If not in the starting XI, he will definitely be included in the squad.

It’s a shame to say that West Ham United have made one of the worst starts to a season ever. But that should not affect Declan Rice’s place in the England national team.
Ben Chilwell and Trent Alexander-Arnold (wing backs) – These wing backs have not been in form of late, but national duties are different from club competitions. Both Liverpool and Chelsea are in rather shaky form this season unfortunately.
Fikayo Tomori and John Stones – Fikayo Tomori was one of the reasons for AC Milan’s Serie A title last season. On the other hand, we can say the same about John Stones since he won the Premier League with Man City.
Aaron Ramsdale – The Arsenal goalkeeper marveled last season. He made a number of magical saves for his team, so his place in England’s starting XI may change slightly.
Correction: Ben Chilwell is not included due to injury
