Oxlade-Chamberlain, Maddison and Hudson-Odoi recalled for England
Gareth Southgate's squad includes call-ups for James Maddison, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the games against Montenegro and Kosovo.
James Maddison and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have won recalls to the England squad for this month's Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Leicester City playmaker Maddison was called up by Gareth Southgate in October but withdrew from the squad due to illness, and there was then some controversy when he was pictured in a casino during England's 2-1 defeat to the Czech Republic in Prague. However, his fine club form has seen him handed another chance to make his senior Three Lions debut. Liverpool's Oxlade-Chamberlain also returns after an 18-month absence as a result of his impressive form of the past few weeks. Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been brought back into the senior fold, having featured for the Under-21s last month.
Grealish, Dele Alli and Lingard excluded
There is no room for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, while Tottenham's Dele Alli and Manchester United's Jesse Lingard have failed to win back their places. Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is included despite concern about an ankle injury, while Manchester City centre-back John Stones also returns.
England face Montenegro at Wembley on 14 November needing only a point to secure their place at the Euro 2020 finals - it will be a landmark occasion for the Three Lions, who celebrate their 1000th game at full international level. Southgate's men then take on Kosovo in their final Group A match on 17 November 17. England top Group A on 15 points, three points ahead of the Czech Republic.
