England host Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday 14 November (7.45pm) in what will mark the national team's 1000th senior worldwide fixture.

The England boss remained coy on whether the Leicester midfielder would be in the November squad when Maddison was pictured in a casino shortly after his withdrawal from the squad through illness last month.

"I guess what James has learned is that if you have an involvement with England, then there's an increased spotlight on you and increased interest in your personal and private life as well" Gareth Southgate said after pictures of Maddison emerged.

Southgate said Kyle Walker's worldwide career was not over despite omitting the Manchester City defender for a third successive squad, with Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold the preferred options at right-back.

John Stones has returned, replacing the axed Michael Keane, and could make his first England appearance since the Nations League in June.

Speaking after announcing the Three Lions squad, Southgate was quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "The squad is a little larger than normal because there were a couple of injury doubts".
