Oct 10 (Reuters) - England midfielder James Maddison has withdrawn from the squad due to illness and will miss the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, the FA said http://www.thefa.com/news/2019/oct/10/james-maddison-withdrawn-from-england-squad-101019 on Thursday.

England have not named a replacement for the uncapped 22-year-old Leicester City player so a 23-man squad will travel to Prague on the eve of Friday's match with the Czechs.

Maddison has scored two goals and provided two assists in seven Premier League matches this season, helping Leicester climb to fourth in the standings after eight games.
