England announced 26-man squad for World Cup, cut Maddison

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — James Maddison was a surprise inclusion for England when coach Gareth Southgate announced his 26-man squad for the World Cup on Thursday.

The Leicester player has made just one appearance for his country, coming on as a substitute in a European Championship qualifier against Montenegro in 2019. But he has been rewarded for his good form for Leicester this season, scoring six goals and providing four assists.

Southgate also included Kyle Walker, despite the Manchester City defender having surgery on his groin last month, while club-mate Calvin Phillips was also selected following shoulder surgery in September. .

Phillips played for the first time since the operation when he came on as a substitute in City’s League Cup tie against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Southgate also opted for Arsenal defender Ben White in the absence of Reece James after Chelsea’s injury, while Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has also been recalled by England after last season’s relegation.

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson has also joined Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.
