Mason Mount has been handed his full England debut as Gareth Southgate makes three changes for the Euro 2020 qualification clash with the Czech Republic in Prague.
The 20-year-old has scored four goals across eight Premier League games for Chelsea, with the midfielder drafted in for his first start having come off the bench twice during the last international break.
Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier came in at full-back from the 5-3 win over Kosovo as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ben Chilwell dropped out – with Southgate’s side knowing victory would assure them of a place at next summer’s finals.
Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson was unable to take his place on the bench having been ruled out through illness.
