Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope will be given starts for England in their final Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo today, according to Sky Sports News.

Gareth Southgate to hand Pope his full England debut in Pristina

England boss Gareth Southgate is set to ring in a few changes for their final Euro Qualifier at the Pristina City Stadium, as he hopes to give his young players adequate international experience before the European Championship. 

The Three Lions have already qualified for the continental tournament after their 7-0 rout of Montenegro on Thursday, giving Southgate the liberty to rotate his squad freely.

Hudson-Odoi will make his second start for the senior team against Kosovo after making his debut against the Czech Republic back in March. Meanwhile, Pope who was first called up in March last year is set to make his full international debut, as it is believed that he will get the nod ahead of Everton’s Jordan Pickford.

Meanwhile, Tyrone Mings is likely to win his second international cap against Kosovo, with a possibility of Fikayo Tomori featuring at some point in the game. John Stones is likely to be rested after recently returning from injury, while James Maddison remains a doubt due to a minor calf strain.

Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford could also be left on the sidelines to make way for Tammy Abraham and Callum Wilson upfront.

You can catch the Euro 2020 qualifier between England and Kosovo at 10.30 PM (IST) tonight.
