Gareth recalls Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers

Gareth Southgate has recalled Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, John Stones and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo. Fans from all over the world can buy England Euro Cup Tickets online.

The England manager has also included Mason Mount, despite concerns over an ankle injury he sustained in Chelsea’s Champions League tie against Ajax, which means that Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish misses out.

There is a relief for James Maddison who has been selected by Southgate despite the manager being concerned at the Leicester City midfielder being photographed at a casino the day after he withdrew from the last England squad through illness.

As expected Stones is selected having returned to the Manchester City team of late with Michael Keane missing out. The central defender played poorly in England’s 2-1 defeat away to the Czech Republic and has also recently lost his place at Everton.

Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori and Villa’s Tyrone Mings keen their places as does Ross Barkley which will come as a relief to the midfielder who has not started any of Chelsea’s last five matches.

Despite an apparent return to form there is no place for Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli in the 27-man squad with Southgate also resisting the temptation to include Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

England can seal qualification with at least a draw against Montenegro at Wembley which will also be their 1,000th international.

I wouldn’t hesitate to call him into the squad, here’s Southgate on Grealish’s absence. The competition in that area is high level – they’re all good players, Jack’s a very good player – I worked with him in the under-21s so I know all about him.

“He’s very close, he just has to keep playing the way he is, and if we had issues over the weekend, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him into the squad.”
