England Team News
Declan Rice, Marcus Rashford, and James Ward-Prowse have all just withdrawn from the England team, while Mount (dental) and Luke Shaw (concussion) will also miss out on this match.
Because of Rashford’s absence, Emile Smith Rowe has been given his first call-up to the national team, but Southgate will stick with his best XI this week before a possible rotation in San Marino.
With the return of Kalvin Phillips, Southgate will be able to pair the Leeds United midfielder with Jordan Henderson, while Phil Foden starts in place of Mount, who is recovering from dental surgery.
Albania Team News
Albania will be bolstered by the return of midfielder Endri Cekici from suspension, but the 24-year-old will find it difficult to reintegrate into the team.
Berat Djimsiti, an Atalanta BC defender who suffered a forearm fracture while on international duty last month, is out for the visitors, although Armando Broja has returned to fitness.
The Chelsea midfielder has scored several key goals for his country as a substitute in World Cup qualifying, and Reja has been hesitant to start him from the start thus far, but with Rey Manaj absent, the 20-year-old might start right away here.
