Due to concerns about James Maddison’s health, Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott might receive a surprise call-up to the England World Cup roster.

As England attempt to win their second World Cup, Gareth Southgate has until Sunday to determine whether he wants to replace Maddison in the 26-man roster.

The right fit?

The 19-year-old Liverpool player has been a reliable performer for the Reds this season. He may be a player on Southgate’s radar if he is to replace the injured Maddison.

Despite the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s team has had a challenging season thus far, Elliott has added quality, enthusiasm, and work ethic to the Liverpool midfield. According to 90min, Southgate would prioritize Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse and Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek. However, Elliott may also be a candidate for the last spot.

And ever since, he has been nothing but impactful in the field. Along with his on-field capabilities, the lad is full of optimism and a team player indeed. Jurgen Klopp already has praised the English youngster many times. And he fully deserves it.

With his probable addition to the English squad, there is no doubt, he will bring the young blood’s firepower to Qatar. All the Scousers as well as the English fans will be looking forward to watching him play.
