No injury worries for England ahead of Kosovo clash

England manager Gareth Southgate has a clean bill of health ahead of Tuesday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo.

The Three Lions boast a perfect record so far in Group A and beat Bulgaria 4-0 at Wembley on Saturday, with captain Harry Kane hitting a hat-trick.

With the Kosovo fixture taking place at St Mary’s, all 23 members of Southgate’s squad prepared for the game at Southampton’s Staplewood training base on Monday.

Manchester United duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard withdrew from the squad ahead of the Bulgaria victory but everyone else took part.

Kosovo sit second in Group A and are unbeaten in their last 15 games, with Southgate unlikely to make wholesale changes for the clash.

James Maddison and Tyrone Mings are awaiting their senior debuts, while Mason Mount will be pushing for his first start after coming off the bench on Saturday.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
