Pope earns his first England start, after the Burnley goalkeeper was first called up in March 2018, while Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi makes only his second start as Gareth Southgate explores his squad options.

Southgate could make further changes for the final European Qualifier at the Pristina City Stadium on Sunday with James Maddison a doubt with a minor calf strain and John Stones set to be rested.

It means Tyrone Mings is likely to win only his second England cap alongside Harry Maguire, though Fikayo Tomori is also pushing for his England debut, and could feature at some stage.

The trip to Kosovo gives Southgate a chance to look at some other players in his squad with only a few games remaining before Euro 2020 gets under way.

Maddison, who came on as a substitute against Montenegro for his maiden England cap, had looked set for his first start.

Callum Hudson - Odoi will make his first England start against Montenegro on Monday night, Sky Sports News understands. Former England U21 manager Stuart Pearce has backed Gareth Southgate's decision to play young players in high profile games.

Stones could be rested. It is understood Southgate and Manchester City are wary of his workload after only recently returning from injury.

Mings played the entirety of the 6-0 away win against Bulgaria last month and impressed in very difficult circumstances. He was replaced by Stones at centre-back against Montenegro but could be set for a return on Sunday, possibly patterned by Chelsea defender Tomori.
