There is also a nod for ex-Man City prodigy Jadon Sancho, 18, who is going great guns with Borussia Dortmund this season - thus potentially making him the first player born post-Millennium to play for England.
Two days earlier the 18-year-old had signed a new contract at Dortmund, extending his stay until 2022.
Sancho deserves plenty of credit for following through with his convictions and moving overseas to further his career.
Sancho's five Bundesliga assists are more than any other player in Europe's big five leagues this season, and he has set up a team-mate once every 25 minutes on average in the Bundesliga.
That England dream may not be to far away either with a number of calls being made for Sancho to be called up by Gareth Southgate to the senior squad.
There is no place in the squad for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, while Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard miss out through injury.
And Southgate has included Mount, the Chelsea attacking midfielder now on loan at Derby County, in his selection for the first time, while Leicester City star Maddison and Borussia Dortmund's Sancho are also in line to win their first caps. "This is a great opportunity for us to look at them".
Southgate's men are now set to go head-to-head with Croatia and Spain in the upcoming global break. We feel that we are always conscious of the balance of how quickly we put those young players in and raise expectation around them and make sure that we don't detrimentally affect their development. He is looking to the future and it should be applauded, it's another fearless decision.
Maddison is another who has hit his stride following a well-thought-out move. He played past year on loan at Vitesse [Arnhem] and has had another season of men's football and created more chances than any other player in the league. The former England Under-21 global come through at Coventry before joining Norwich and also spent time on loan at Aberdeen maturing. Not content to sit in Chelsea's Under-23s after an impressive season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, the midfielder insisted on joining Derby County this summer where his cause would be furthered by Frank Lampard.
