The Leicester City star has been in magnificent form for the Foxes this term, hitting three goals and collecting a couple of assists in all competitions. His stellar showings have been integral to the Midlanders strong start to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, with Brendan Rodgers men fourth in the table after eight rounds of action.
Maddison received his third call-up to the Three Lions squad in early October ahead of Group A meetings with Czech Republic and Montenegro on Friday and Monday, respectively.
However, he is yet to make a senior appearance for his nation, with his club confirming that the 22-year-old will remain uncapped, having returned to Leicester to continue his recovery.
The youngsters strong performances led many to believe he would start at least one - if not both - of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers, after being named as a substitute for the Three Lions previous two matches.
Southgate chose to keep Maddison on the bench as his team thrashed Bulgaria 4-0 on 7th September, with the playmaker again an unused substitute during the manic 5-3 victory over Kosovo three days later.
Chelsea starlet Mason Mount was given his first taste of international football in both encounters, though his Leicester counterpart was unfazed by a lack of game-time on his part.
Prior to his departure from the training camp, Maddison explained: "Its not easy to get an England cap. Its an honour to be in the squad - some big names have been left out.
"But, Im hungry to get some minutes. I have always wanted to play for England. Im not naive enough to sit here and say I should be playing. If that opportunity does come I will be ready - more than ready."
