The Three Lions have welcomed two Premier League stars back to the fold for their last two Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Bukayo Saka and Callum Wilson have returned to the England team for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Saka, who withdrew from the previous squad with a hamstring injury, is back in the fold. He has featured in all six of Arsenal’s games since October 21 and started in five of them.

Wilson, like Saka, missed the last international break due to a hamstring issue. The Newcastle striker had an injury scare in the Champions League loss to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, but he seems to have got the all-clear.

Despite some injury concerns, Tottenham midfielder James Maddison is in the squad. Ollie Watkins and Jordan Henderson have also kept their spots.

Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling is left out again though, while Eddie Nketiah and John Stones won’t play due to injuries.

England have already secured a place in the Euro 2024 tournament for next summer. They lead Group C with 16 points from six games, three points ahead of Ukraine. Italy are three points behind in third place.

Next, England will face Malta at Wembley next Friday and then visit North Macedonia on November 20.
