Leicester midfielder Tielemans: Maddison should go to Qatar

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans says James Maddison should be in England’s World Cup squad.

Maddison was outstanding for victory at Everton.

Tielemans doesn’t think that his teammate could do anything more to earn a place in the 26-man squad that is set to be named on Thursday.

“I hope so for him (he makes the squad),” Tielemans told BBC Sport after the Everton match. “(But) it’s not my decision.

“What he’s doing, with his stats, he’s been so influential. Scoring goals, two assists today. He’s doing all the good performances he can do. It’s up to the England manager.”
