Maddison celebrated his post on Instagram after the game, while Bellingham expressed his gratitude to the Spurs star
“What a great player,” Bellingham responded to Madison’s post
It is unclear whether Southgate agrees with Bellingham’s assessment of Maddison, but he spoke positively about England’s fringe player after reflecting on the international match in March
The Three Lions boss said: “I’m a bit confused as to who’s there
” And who’s not
What’s great is that there are definitely players who have made a positive result from the opportunities they’ve been given

In some ways we may have more depth, but injuries are a concern
When Jude Bellingham replied to a teammate’s Instagram post, he indirectly sent a message to England manager Gareth Southgate
The 20-year-old scored the equalizer in stoppage time against Belgium on Tuesday, taking the weakened Three Lions to a deserved 2-2 draw at Wembley Stadium
England suffered a number of injuries before kick-off, with Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane and Kyle Walker all missing, with John Stones forced to be substituted early in the first half
The injury crisis gave Southgate the opportunity to use several fringe players, including Ezri Konsa, Jarrod Bowen, Ivan Toney and man of the match Koby Mainu, all of whom faced Domenico Tedesco’s team
However, one player whose playing time was limited during the March international break was Tottenham’s James Maddison
The midfielder came on for Mainou with 15 minutes remaining in the match against Belgium
But the 27-year-old stepped up and supported Bellingham’s late equalizer with a deft pass
“Next season is very hot and given the intensity of the games and what’s to come, we’re missing so many players at the moment that we won’t know what’s left until the very end
“European Championship On whether he is close to identifying who will be in the 23-man squad, he added: “There are so many unknowns with the 23-man in terms of who will be available
It was very important
” Whether these players could play against top-class opponents
“But how they play in the big games until the end of the season will also be very important

“I wanted to see Anthony Gordon again, I thought he did that, he made a great impression in the first game and I thought James Maddison would open things up for us a little bit
