“All the other players in the squad, except (Daniel) Amartey and Matty James, will be available.
The absence of James Maddison, who leads the team in terms of key passes, will be a bitter blow. Kelechi Iheanacho will be tasked with the responsibility of the providing the creative spark in the final third in Maddisons absence.
“We will see after the international break if they can come back in the team. Maguire’s is a little more serious than Maddison’s. We will see.
“Yes (it’s Maguire’s knee), from the Cardiff game. It will be a few weeks, we will make a point about his comeback after the international break. I do not have all the information about him.
“(Maddison) feels something the day after the Cardiff game. It’s not too serious but he will not play this game. It’s his knee, damage in the ligaments behind his knee.”
Maguire and Maddison’s absence will make what is already a tough task even more tougher, but there is hardly anyone who is bothered about the result of the game. The city of Leicester is still in state of a shock, and their side’s football quite clearly is last in the list of priorities.

Even for the fans, the upcoming couple of weeks will be somewhat refreshing. There are a lot of encounters to be excited about, two of which, of course, include England. Their friendly against the USA should ideally of particular interest to anyone in the country, seeing as it’ll be the 120th and final time that Wayne Rooney will play for the Three Lions.
