2022 World Cup: James Maddison makes England’s 26-man squad for Qatar

Gareth Southgate has selected James Maddison for the England World Cup squad.

Another unexpected addition to the 26-man squad is Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, who joins Callum Wilson of Newcastle and Ben White of Arsenal as center backs.

Tammy Abraham, Ivan Toney, and defenders Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi are all out due to Wilson’s selection.

Despite doubts about their health, Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips of Manchester City can participate, and Marcus Rashford, who last represented the Three Lions in the Euro 2020 final, is included as expected.

Due to Reece James’ injury, Trent Alexander-Arnold will also be going to Qatar, although Luke Shaw is the sole left-back in the team.
