Having maintained their unbeaten record in September's qualifiers, albeit dropping their first points when conceding a late equaliser in Poland, England can all but secure their place in the finals with two more victories.

With Harry Maguire and Trent Alexander-Arnold out injured, Southgate has called up former Chelsea centre-half Fikayo Tomori, now with AC Milan, saying of the 23-year-old: "Because he's got speed he's confident enough to defend on the front foot and his use of the ball is improving all the time."

Striker Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa and Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale are also named in the squad.

Facing two games that his side are heavily expected to win, Southgate has opted to rest Jude Bellingham and also opted not to 'overload' another youngster, Mason Greenwood of Manchester United.
