JAMES Ward-Prowse has made a return to the England starting fold for the World Cup qualifying contest at Andorra (7:45PM)

His last Three Lions appearances came in June during European Championship warm-up games against Romania and Austria – both 1-0 wins.

Ward-Prowse made a surprise return to the England fold with a late call-up after Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips was forced to withdraw from the squad through injury.

And he has now been rewarded for his efforts with a start in Gareth Southgate’s side.

The 26-year-old has started every game of the Premier League season for Ralph Hasenhuttl, but his run of 102 consecutive appearances in the division will come to an end after his red card at Stamford Bridge.

That’s why the England camp will come as a refreshing stint for him, although the game was put at risk after a fire broke out in Estadio Nacional and engulfed the gantry – destroying the VAR monitor – during a live Sky Sports broadcast.

Rob Dorsett was reporting live when the flames began to take over the gantry, bursting to flames right next to the synthetic surface and potentially damaging it ahead of the game.

But it has been confirmed to go ahead after Andorra trained on the surface yesterday, and Ward-Prowse will take to the surface in the hope of adding to his solitary goal, which came against footballing minnows San Marino.
