GARETH Southgate has again omitted Saints skipper James Ward-Prowse from his latest England squad.

The Three Lions are in World Cup qualifying action during the upcoming international break with a visit to Andorra, before welcoming Hungary to Wembley Stadium.

But 26-year-old Ward-Prowse will play no part meaning he has missed out on the last three England squads, including the European Championships and September break.

His last inclusion was in the preliminary EURO squad, where he featured in warm-up games vs Austria and Romania – both 1-0 wins.

Portsmouth-born Ward-Prowse has played eight times for his country on the senior stage, scoring once, after featuring a huge 31 times for the under-21 squad.

Southgate’s midfield options for the upcoming fixtures instead include Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Jordan Henderson and Mason Mount.

Thanks to a backlog of games caused by Covid-19 disruption, there is another international break in November – where England will face Albania and San Marino, who Ward-Prowse scored his only international goal against.

They will be the final qualification games for Qatar 2022, which will take place next winter.

Full England squad:

Goalkeepers – Sam Johnstone, Jordan Pickford, Aaron Ramsdale

Defenders – Conor Coady, Reece James, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Fikayo Tomori, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker

Midfielders – Phil Foden, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice

Attackers – Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling, Ollie Watkins
