When the England squad was announced for last week’s internationals, James Maddison was one of the names on everyone’s lips.

As it transpired, the creative Leicester midfielder failed to play a single minute and must wait to make his Three Lions debut.

How did he do in the game?

If talk from the gossip column is to be believed, then this was an audition for Maddison for a big-money, January move to Old Trafford.
