Declan Rice has been named in the England squad for their concluding UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo.

Gareth Southgate's men take on the pair needing just a single point to guarantee their place at next summer's finals.

Rice has featured in all but one of the Three Lions' six qualifiers to date, helping them earn 15 points from those games.

They face Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday 14 November in what will be England's 1,000th senior men's international.

The trip to Kosovo follows, where England will bring their qualification campaign to a close on Sunday 17 November.

20-year-old Rice already has six caps for England, as he has quickly established himself in Southgate's ranks.
