All information is complete to and including England's last match, the third of the 2019-20 season, against Czech Republic on 11 October 2019


Thursday, 3 October 2019 - Gareth Southgate names his 25-man squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Midfielders Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard have been left out, as has Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and uncapped Aaron Wan-Bissaka. There is a first call-up for defender Fikayo Tomori, while his Chelsea team-mate, striker Tammy Abraham, has also been picked. Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker has again been omitted.

Monday, 7 October 2019 - As the squad arrives as St. George's Park, Everton midfielder, Fabian Delph withdraws from the squad. He picked up a hamstring injury in his side's defeat to Burnley on Saturday. The FA have stated he will not be replaced and that Southgate will carry on with a 24-man squad.

Tuesday, 8 October 2019 - Dean Henderson, Sheffield United's goalkeeper, has been called up to the squad after Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton returned to his club. Heaton picked up an injury in his side's demolition of Norwich City on Saturday. Henderson has 11 under-21 appearances.
Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori says he is "committed" to England after considering which country to represent. Tomori, 21, was born in Canada and played for their under-20s team, and is also eligible to play for Nigeria. He said that receiving his first England call-up for the Euro 2020 qualifiers away to the Czech Republic and Bulgaria was "unexpected". "Depending on how you look at it, being eligible for three countries is a good thing and a bad thing. I wasn't expecting to be in the England squad at the beginning of the season, and once I got the call-up there was no doubt I would commit. It's a bit cliched but it is a dream. Growing up in England and seeing the players playing at Wembley, it was such a good feeling. It's indescribable. I tried to take it in as much as possible, but it was a very proud moment." Tomori's situation is similar to Chelsea team-mate Tammy Abraham, who also qualifies to play for Nigeria through his family and was called into the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Four members of the under 21 squad joined the main squad for training today. They were Phil Foden, Ellery Balcombe, Dwight McNeil and Reece James.

Wednesday, 9 October 2019 - Tammy Abraham says England are prepared to walk off the pitch if they are targeted by racist abuse in their qualifiers this week. England face Bulgaria on Monday in a partially-closed stadium because of fans' racist behaviour in June. "If it happens to one of us, it happens to all of us. Harry Kaneen said that if we're not happy, if a player is not happy, we all come off the pitch together."  UEFA ordered the partial closure of Bulgaria's national stadium following racist behaviour by their fans in Euro 2020 qualifying games against the Czech Republic and Kosovo in June. Gareth Southgate said last month that he would talk to the players before next week's game, and Abraham says the players have decided they will take matters into their own hands if necessary. UEFA's three-step protocol for racial abuse ends with the officials abandoning a match if announcements inside a stadium do not stop the problem. "We did speak about that. Harry Kane did ask the question about instead of going through the three steps, if we decide that we want to stop the game - no matter what the score is - if we're not happy with it, as a team we'll decide whether or not to stay on the pitch. If it happens and let's say there's a warning or whatever in the stadium, then it happens again, we have to make a decision as a team and with the staff." Trent Alexander-Arnold agreed the team should follow the protocols but added: "If it does get extreme we may have to take a different action. It's a team decision, one that we all need to make. It doesn't matter if one player is abused or the team - we are one group. Nobody should be made to feel uncomfortable on the pitch.eryone should be given the chance to play in a fair environment. We are a team. If one person is abused then we all are, we are one big family."

Thursday, 10 October 2019 - With one last training session before the England squad fly off to Prague, James Maddison withdraws from the squad because of illness. He will not be replaced, leaving Southgate with a 23-man squad.

Friday, 11 October 2019 - Callum Wilson falls ill and is quarantined from the rest of the squad.

Czech Republic 2 England 1: England must wait to confirm their place in Euro 2020 after the Czech Republic deservedly ended their 43-game unbeaten run in qualifiers stretching back 10 years. Gareth Southgate's side would have secured their place in next summer's tournament with victory in Prague but they can have no complaints after a wretched display against a Czech side who were a different proposition from that swept aside 5-0 at Wembley in March. England can still qualify on Monday if they beat Bulgaria and Kosovo do not beat Montenegro.

Sunday, 13 October 2019 - Gareth Southgate is considering returning to the three-man defence that helped England reach last summer's World Cup semi-finals. Defensive errors were punished in their first Euro qualifier defeat since 2009. "It's certainly something we've considered," said Southgate on a possible defensive switch. "I think we are in a difficult situation in terms of the players that have played international football with us in that area of the pitch and who are playing regularly with their clubs. So, that's part of the reason we didn't do that on Friday. I'm not sure, ahead of Monday, if that's the right thing to do but we're very aware and assessing those things."

21 players out out in training this morning in Prague. Danny Rose has returned to his club, as he is suspended for the match tomorrow night. Declan Rice is the other missing player. The 22-man squad will fly to Bulgaria later on today.

Tuesday, 15 October 2019 - UEFA have confirmed four charges against the Bulgaria Football Union following the appalling scenes during last night's Euro 2020 qualification match. Twice the match was halted in the first half because of racist chanting, and an announcement was made. The Bulgarian fans also threw objects and disrupted the national anthem, as well as showing replays on the big screen. But the Football Association themselves have also been hit with two charges themselves. The English supporters booed the national anthem, as well as the FA providing 'insufficient number of travelling stewards'.

Tuesday, 29 October 2019 -
The Football Association have been fined €5,000 for disturbances during the national anthem. The hearing regarding the lack of stewards at the same game has been put back to 21 November.
