Leicester midfielder James Maddison has been forced to withdraw from the England squad due to an illness.

The 22-year-old has made an impressive start to the Premier League campaign and was in strong contention to make a senior debut in this round of matches, with the Three Lions in Euro 2020 qualifying action against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
