Leicester City’s James Maddison and Harry Maguire have been called up to the England squad for matches against Croatia and Spain.

ITV report that the call-up is the first senior one for Maddison, who has previously represented his country at U21 level.

Maddison has caught the eye of England boss Gareth Southgate after adapting extremely well to life in the top-flight.

The 21-year-old has registered three goals and two assists in seven Premier League matches since his £20m June move from Norwich City.

Maddison is one of three players given a first call-up by Southgate, who has named an inexperienced squad for the UEFA Nations League doubleheader.

Jadon Sancho, who has impressed with Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season, and Mason Mount, who is plying his trade in the Championship, were the other two to receive the call.

Maguire will be one of the more experienced heads in the camp, having established himself as a regular with his performances at the World Cup in Russia.

The centre-back has 14 caps to his name and has also had a solid start to the season with the Foxes, scoring the second goal in the club’s 2-0 win at Newcastle United on Saturday.

Full-back Ben Chilwell and forward Demarai Gray will be disappointed to miss out having been part of the squad that faced Switzerland last month.
