Harry Maguire gets his place in the team after his legal incident in Greece found him dropped by Southgate last month, while Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood aren’t so fortunate following an off-field incident in Iceland.
England has an Oct. 8 friendly with Wales before a pair of UEFA Nations League matches with Belgium (Oct. 11) and Denmark (Oct. 14).
Southgate’s men drew Denmark and beat Iceland away and sit two points back of Belgium atop Group A2. Belgium beat Iceland 5-1 and Denmark 2-0 in the other matches so far.
First place goes to the UNL Finals while fourth is relegated to League B.
