Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane have both returned to the England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Scotland and friendly with Spain. Wilshere has not been involved since the European Championships while Kane missed October's win over Malta and draw at Slovenia.

Spurs midfielder Dele Alli is omitted after a knee injury saw him miss the north London derby draw at The Emirates Stadium. Everton's Ross Barkley remains on the sidelines, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has also failed to win a recall despite enjoying the best scoring season of his career.

Adam Lallana, Raheem Sterling and Nathaniel Clyne all were absent from last month's double-header but are reinstated, while Burnley's Michael Keane is retained after being handed his maiden call-up for the Slovenia draw. Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford are also included.

"Over the last few weeks we've been looking at as many games as possible and keeping track of all of the players," said Southgate on the The FA's official website. "There were some players that weren't available to us last time with injury who are in good form that make the frame – the likes of Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling. It's good to be able to welcome them back.

"Similarly Harry Kane. We had some good discussions with a lot of the clubs over the past few weeks, and Tottenham have been very helpful in terms of Harry's availability. I'm grateful to Mauricio [Pochettino] for that. Of course, Jack Wilshere is a player that we feel has a lot of class and is now starting to get more 90-minutes under his belt. It's good to bring him back into the squad."

Kane marked his return to the Tottenham team with a penalty to claim a point at Arsenal on Sunday [6 November] having missed seven weeks with ankle ligament damage. Wilshere meanwhile was loaned out by Arsenal in the summer and has made 10 appearances at AFC Bournemouth this term.

Kyle Walker is included in the squad despite being stretchered off during the game with Arsenal and he will be assessed when the players assemble at St George's Park on Monday [7 November]. England face Scotland on 11 November in a World Cup qualifier before hosting Spain in a friendly on 15 November, with both games taking place at Wembley
