Callum Wilson has been recalled to England squad for their final UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia. 

Wilson missed last month’s action with a hamstring injury but is now fit for selection again and replaces Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah who has been dropped from the squad.

Bukayo Saka also returns to the squad after he missed October’s wins over Australia and Italy with a hamstring injury, which had forced him to withdraw from the team days prior to the friendly win over the Socceroos.

Attacking midfielder, James Maddison has retained his place in the team once more despite suffering a minor ankle injury, which saw him substituted just before half time during Tottenham’s controversial league defeat to Chelsea on Monday (6 November)

In defence, Manchester City’s John Stones has dropped out due to a muscle injury suffered in their Champions League win over Young Boys, with manager – Gareth Southgate opting not to replace the defender.

Southgate meanwhile has named unchanged goalkeeping and midfield selections, with Aaron Ramsdale, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice amongst those to retain their places in the squad.

England kick off their final pair of qualifiers with a home clash against Malta on Friday 17 November in a 7:45pm GMT kick-off at Wembley Stadium, London, before visiting North Macedonia on Monday 20 November in a 8:45pm CET (7:45pm UK Time) kick-off in Skopje.
