Rico Lewis makes his England debut in their Euro 2024 qualifier against North Macedonia, while Ollie Watkins starts up front in place of Harry Kane.

Manchester City defender Rico Lewis has been brought in for his England debut in their Euro 2024 qualifier against North Macedonia.

The 18-year-old was an unused substitute in Friday's 2-0 victory over Malta and comes in for Kieran Trippier, who pulled out of the squad over the weekend for personal reasons.

Lewis will seemingly take up the left-back position for Gareth Southgate's side, and he is one of six changes for the visitors, as Citizens teammate Kyle Walker is also recalled to the backline.

At the tip of the attack, Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins has been given the nod over Harry Kane, while Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka replace Marcus Rashford - who is fit enough for a place on the bench - and Conor Gallagher.

Trent Alexander-Arnold holds his place in midfield, where Declan Rice returns over Jordan Henderson, and the central pairing of Marc Guehi and Harry Maguire remains unchanged.

England - who are already confirmed to have qualified for next year's tournament as Group C winners - will be seeded in Pot 1 for the Euro 2024 group-stage draw with at least a point in Skopje.

North Macedonia: Dimitrievski; Musliu, Serafimov, Manev; Dimoski, Atanasov, Alimi, Alioski; Miovski, Bardhi, Elmas
Subs: Aleksovski, Shiskovski, Iljazovski, Ashkovski, Ademi, Churlinov, Mitrovski, Kostadinov, Elezi, Ristovski, Daci, Todoroski

England: Pickford; Walker, Guehi, Maguire, Lewis; Alexander-Arnold, Rice; Saka, Foden, Grealish; Watkins
Subs: Johnstone, Ramsdale, Tomori, Henderson, Phillips, Gallagher, Konsa, Rashford, Palmer, Kane
