But last night in the Premier League match against West Ham United, he limped off the field with an injury in the first half of the match. James Maddison opened the scoring for his side in the highly contested match which would also be the last club match before the World Cup break but in the 22nd minute.

He left the pitch immediately leaving the entire nation worried about whether his World Cup would be over even before starting off. Every English fan was praying and hoping it wouldn’t be a bad injury. The news came in later that it was a muscle injury and that the playmaker left the pitch as a precautionary measure.

Fans were absolutely thrilled when Southgate included Maddison in his plans for Qatar but when the player limped off the pitch last night Twitter was absolutely buzzing with tweets. A fan said, “James Maddison down off the ball holding his hamstring. This is awful, absolutely awful. This doesn’t look good at all.”

Someone also said, “Maybe this is wishful thinking but if I’m Maddison and I’ve already got a goal on the board and my flight to Qatar leaves in two hours I’m absolutely 100% faking an injury.” Michael Owen also gave his verdict on the injury saying, “Surely not. Maddison off with what looks like a hamstring injury. Football can be so cruel,” if anyone would know what a hamstring injury looks like in fairness.”
