PL Champion names Leicester midfielder in his Team of the Week and recommends him for international recognition

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."

Shearer's Team of the Week
David De Gea (MUN) | MUN 1-1 WOL

Were it not for the Spaniard's brilliance between the posts, Wolves would have taken a deserved three points at Old Trafford.

Pablo Zabaleta (WHU) | WHU 0-0 CHE

Experience counts and the Argentinian right-back showed it all against Chelsea.

Issa Diop (WHU) |   WHU 0-0 CHE

The Frenchman was impressive and helped keep Eden Hazard and Co quiet for a first clean sheet of the season.

Joel Matip (LIV) | LIV 3-0 SOU

The centre-back was solid. He collected a clean sheet and scored his first goal at Anfield.

Ben Chilwell (LEI)LEI 3-1 HUD

This has been a great month for the 21-year-old. He made his England debut and was impressive again here.

Joao Moutinho (WOL)MUN 1-1 WOL

The Portuguese produced a magnificent performance and goal. He also showed the energy and desire that his opponents lacked.

Declan Rice (WHU) | WHU 0-0 CHE

A performance full of maturity from the teenager. He was organising with an authority that belies his 19 years.

Bernardo Silva (MCI) | CAR 0-5 MCI

He was just magnificent, crowning a wonderful performance with an assist and a goal.

James Maddison (LEI)LEI 3-1 HUD

It was another fine performance and another goal. If he keeps on going like this it's only a matter of time before he gets a full England cap.

Ilkay Gundogan (MCI) | CAR 0-5 MCI

His was a superb performance which had everything. 

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) | ARS 2-0 EVE

The Frenchman scored a stunning goal to send Arsenal on their way to three points. 

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo (WOL) | MUN 1-1 WOL

Nuno has now taken points off Man City and Man Utd and more than matched them in both encounters.
