James Maddison got a much celebrated late call up for England by Gareth Southgate, who was convinced by his recent good form.
But the Leicester man was taken off in his last club game before the tournament, and while he still looks on course to be fit enough to play pretty soon, there remain some doubts.
This Football.London article makes the convincing suggestion that Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be next in line for a callup should Maddison drop out.
RLC made it to the 2018 World Cup as a youngster and played in two matches, but his severe injury following that really set him back.
His regular appearances in various positions for Chelsea in the last 12 months must surely put him closer to Gareth Southgate’s thoughts than he has been in a while.
For now though, Maddison will be doing all he can to be ready for at least the second and third games in the group.
