Gareth Southgate has named his England squad for November’s international break, as the Three Lions conclude their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with fixtures against Malta and North Macedonia.
England are already assured of their place at next summer’s finals, with this month’s games providing Southgate with a chance to experiment with his squad.
Newcastle forward Callum Wilson has been recalled to the squad, while Ollie Watkins and Jarrod Bowen retain their places from October after impressive starts to the season at Aston Villa and West Ham respectively.
There’s no room for Chelsea duo Reece James and Raheem Sterling however, while in-form Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon is not included despite talk of a maiden selection.
Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips and Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale keep their places in the squad despite a lack of football at club level. James Maddison is selected, offering a positive update on the Tottenham midfielder’s ankle injury sustained last weekend.
England squad in full:
Goalkeepers: Sam Johnstone, Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale.
Defenders: Levi Colwill, Lewis Dunk, Marc Guehi, Harry Maguire, Fikayo Tomori, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker.
Midfielders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jude Bellingham, Conor Gallagher, Jordan Henderson, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice.
Forwards: Jarrod Bowen, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, James Maddison, Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, Ollie Watkins, Callum Wilson.
