Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is targeting a spot in the England national team for the long haul as he revealed that he wants to be an important player for both club and country. Maddison wants to be the main man for both the England national team and Leicester City. He talked about being a big player for both England and the Foxes in an exclusive interview with Sportsmail.
James Maddison has been battling with a hip problem in recent months but that has cleared up completely after surgery. The former Norwich City player is now fully fit. He has played just five games in the last eight months. As he turns 24 on Monday, James Maddison has set a target for himself. According to him, he wants to help Leicester City in their quest for another league title to add to the 2015/16 title triumph. The Foxes were title challengers for the majority of the last campaign before a poor final weeks of the season derailed their title challenge and a place in the top four of the league. Maddison and Leicester City missed out on Champions League spot (a top four place) at the end of the season.
The Leicester City man believes that he still has a chance to part of the 23-man England party ahead of the European Championships next summer. James Maddison wants to start his target of becoming a big player for England and the Foxes as from the huge league meeting with the championsat Anfield this weekend.
Maddison would be hoping to repeat the scoring feat from last season in the same Liverpool vs. Leicester City fixture. He scored the only goal for the Foxes in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool. Veteran player James Milner scored the winning goal in the dying moments of the game via the penalty spot.
