As reported by Goal, ahead of England's match against Australia, Maddison showcased his wit by teasing Liverpool defender and fellow England teammate Trent Alexander Arnold in a social media post captioned 'Still asking for a replay.' It's worth noting that this was in the wake of Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp's request for a replay of the match between his team and Tottenham.

This former Leicester City midfielder continued to exhibit his playful side by following it up with a hilarious TikTok video that generated enthusiastic responses from fans.

Maddison's funny TikTok video

In the video, which has since been deleted and was shared by @CentreGoal on Social Media, Maddison attempted a shot that went wide of goalkeeper Matthew Ryan during England's encounter with Australia.

To the surprise of many, Maddison taking a dig at himself, posted this wayward strike on TikTok and playfully edited the video to make it seem as if the shot had journeyed into space before comically striking a slumbering woman, much to the delight of his fans.

"Hahaha 😄😂😆😂 what is he thinking before kicking that ball."

@Sirjerry_cfc posted:

"Make fun of yourself and it won't get to you."

@Seansnoozy commented:

"He's doing the reverse psychology method."

Despite Maddison's ability to elicit fun reactions from fans with his wayward shot, supporters will be hoping that he can find the target when he faces Luciano Spalletti's Italy in their crucial Euro qualifying fixture.

Maddison trolls Trent

Sports Brief in a previous report stated James Maddison has revisited the contentious Tottenham versus Liverpool clash with a brutal comment aimed at Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The two teams played the most controversial game in recent times on September 30, with the Reds hard done by officials' decisions on more than one occasion.

Jurgen Klopp went on record as calling for a replay of the game but also ceded it would be hard to grant one under the current circumstances.
