          Leicester City midfielder James Maddison has been called up for England's Euro 2020 qualifiers squad - with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate also welcoming Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back into the fold.

          Maddison makes the cut despite courting controversy when he withdrew from England's last squad with illness - but was later pictured out at a casino.

          Return of The Ox

          Liverpool midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain's return to the senior squad is fitting reward for his good form of late, while Man City's John Stones and Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi have also been recalled for the forthcoming games against Montenegro on 14 November and Kosovo on 17 November. 

          England currently top Group A and need only a single point to seal their place at Euro 2020. 

          Motivational words

          Announcing his squad, Southgate offered words of encouragement for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish who once again missed out on a call-up. 

          "Grealish is a very good player - I've watched him closely this season," said Southgate.

          "The reality is he's up against Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

          "If we have any issues with the squad I wouldn't hesitate to call him up. He was very close and just has to keep playing the way he is."
