England XI vs Andorra: Confirmed team news as Gareth Southgate rings the changes

By Dan Kilpatrick

Tammy Abraham will lead the line for England in Andorra with Gareth Southgate naming a second-string Three Lions side.

The Roma striker will make his first international appearance since last November, while Ben Chilwell and James Ward-Prowse are brought in after difficult summers and missing out on call-ups last month.

England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone wins his third senior cap, while Phil Foden makes his first appearance since the Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark.

Captain Harry Kane is, as expected, rested and named on the bench with Atletico Madrid full-back, Kieran Trippier taking the armband in his place.

AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori was widely expected to get a chance at the back but Southgate has gone with a back two of John Stones and Conor Coady.

Jesse Lingard was England’s standout player in the win over Andorra at Wembley, scoring twice and gets another chance to impress here.

England XI: Johnstone; Trippier, Stones, Coady, Chilwell; Ward-Prowse, Foden, Lingard; Saka, Sancho, Abraham
