Alan Shearer says a call up the England team is beckoning for James Maddison following another excellent display at the weekend for Leicester City.

Maddison followed up on last week's set-piece masterclass with a superb free-kick in the Foxes' 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

And Shearer believes the 21-year-old's third goal of the season will have registered on England manager Gareth Southgate's radar.

"It was another fine performance and another goal," said Shearer of a player he has selected in the No 10 role in his Team of the Week.

"If he keeps on going like this it's only a matter of time before he gets a full England cap."
