Declan Rice has retained his place in the latest England squad for November's European Qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo.

Rice, who was an unused substitute for England's most recent outing - the thumping 6-0 win against Bulgaria, a game that was marred by crowd trouble - is in line to win his seventh England cap.

West Ham's midfielder, the 1,241st played to win a full international cap for England made his debut for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions in March 2019 and has been included in every squad since.

Just a single point will secure England's place in next summer's Euro 2020 Finals; the first opportunity to gain that comes on Thursday, 14 November against Montenegro at Wembley in what will be England's 1,000th senior international match.

Thereafter England travel to Pristina where Kosovo will provide the hosts for the first time on Sunday, 17 November.

The squad includes no new faces although Leicester CIty's James Maddision and Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori are yet to receive a full international cap.
