Leicester goalkeeper Schmeichel impressed by young England trio

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is impressed by their young players this season.

Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray have been called up to the England squad for the first time for tonight's friendly against Switzerland, while James Maddison has impressed in the Premier League.

"We have some good English youngsters like Demarai and 'Chilly', and then James Maddison, who has absolutely in no way looked out of place in the Premier League," Schmeichel said.

"It is always a difficult step up from Championship to the Premier League and he has just taken to it like a duck to water.

"I have been really impressed with all of them. They are going to play a big part for us, not just now but in the future."
