Phil Foden has been recalled to the England squad after being cut from the team in September for breaching coronavirus protocols.

Having been cut in September and left out in October, Phil Foden was recalled by England boss Gareth Southgate for the next internationals.

Foden has now been restored to the squad, though there was no space for Mason Greenwood despite Harvey Barnes being overlooked and Danny Ings missing out through injury.

Raheem Sterling is available again after missing the previous three matches due to injury, while Reece James retained his place despite being shown a red card at the end of the 1-0 loss to Denmark in October.

James and Harry Maguire, who also saw red against Denmark, will miss the Nations League meeting with Belgium on November 15.

England face the Republic of Ireland next Thursday and follow the clash with Belgium by hosting Iceland at Wembley three days later.
