Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to start for England against Kosovo on Sunday evening in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

The Three Lions have already qualified for the Championships next summer across Europe after the 7-0 thrashing of Montenegro on Thursday.  

Chelsea have an increasing cohort in the England side, and Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to make his second start for the senior side. 

According to Sky Sports' Rob Dorsett, the 19-year-old will be named in the starting XI to face Kosovo on Sunday evening.

Gareth Southgate is set to mix the squad up in preparation for the European Championships next summer, and Hudson-Odoi has been given another chance to impress on the international stage. 

He broke into the England squad back in March and made his senior debut against the Czech Republic, but an Achilles injury set his rapid development back. 

Despite a short time in the U21's earlier on this season, Southgate called him back up to the senior squad following impressive performances with Chelsea since returning from injury. 

Fikayo Tomori could see himself in contention to start against Kosovo after Joe Gomez was ruled out through injury, however Tyrone Mings is the favourite to get the nod. 

Tammy Abraham will be itching to continue in the side after his goal in the 7-0 thumping of Montenegro at Wembley. 

Gareth Southgate hailed it 'a special night' for Tammy Abraham and co in England's 1000th game.

"It’s a really special moment, on England’s 1000th game for James to get his debut, for Tammy to get his first goal are obviously moments that will live with them forever. So special for them and for their families."
