Fans were left particularly disappointed by Maddison’s no-show, especially given his brilliant form in a Leicester shirt so far this season and the clamour for his call-up before the squad was announced.
But Southgate explained securing the result was his priority over handing out caps, and admitted Winks and Maddison weren’t the only players he had to disappoint.
“We had ambition to get more people into the games,” the Three Lions boss told talkSPORT’s Nigel Adderley.

“If you look at young players we’ve played [Declan] Rice, who is still in the very early stages of his international career, and [Jadon] Sancho and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] who only have a handful of caps, and then we got Mason [Mount] onto the pitch twice.
“But when the game goes 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, we can’t just be about giving everybody an opportunity.
“That’s tough on the guys who haven’t got on the pitch, but Tyrone Mings, Joe Gomez and Callum Wilson are all in the same position and our two other goalkeepers who have been brilliant all week are also in the same position.
“It’s a shame for those guys, but they just have to keep playing well for their clubs.”
It meant Sancho become the youngest player since Wayne Rooney in 2004 to score more than one goal in a game for England, and his efforts were appreciated by supporters as he received a standing ovation when he was replaced by Marcus Rashford late on.
Sancho was picked ahead of Rashford for the clash, although Gareth Southgate made it clear that decision was ‘in no way a reflection of how people played at the weekend’ in the 4-0 win over Bulgaria.
The Manchester United striker struggled to make an impact in that game, and has not been at this best for the Red Devils since scoring twice in the opening Premier League win over Chelsea.
With Sancho, meanwhile, Southgate admitted ‘his number of goals and assists at Dortmund speaks for itself’.
While it has taken eight caps to find the net in an England shirt, he’s had no trouble making a regular impact for his German club.
No player in Europe’s top five leagues has produced more assists in league football than Sancho since the start of last season – 17.
That total includes four in five appearances for Dortmund this term, as well as three goals.
And he was pleased to take his chance against a tricky Kosovo side, in a game that was chaotic at the back but slick and tidy in attack.

“It was a very special moment for me and my family,” he told talkSPORT following the match.
“They caught us early and how we reacted to that was really good by scoring five goals, and to get two of them was really good.
“There’s always competition in a front three, so when you get your opportunity you’ve just got to take it.

“I’ve been a Bury fan all my life and I just can’t believe it,” said told the Sports Bar.
“I’m totally broken hearted.
“I’m so angry at so many different people and I just can’t believe that something that has been a constant in my life has gone.
“I was first taken by my Dad when I was two, we’re supported Bury through four generations of my family and I can’t believe it’s gone.
“I’m so livid. I’m livid at the EFL, I’m livid at our two owners, firstly Stewart Day for racking up the ridiculous amounts of debt and secondly Steve Dale for his greed.
“If he had interacted with our prospective buyers when they first got in touch we might have had a deal, but he wanted to line his own pockets.
“He bought us for £1, he wanted to line his pockets and he walks away scot-free. He has devastated our community.
“I’ll be broken hearted for the rest of my life over this. Football is done for me. When you support a club you can’t support another.”
talkSPORT host Will Gavin was also joined on Extra Time by Bury fan Andrea, who revealed she and many other supporters warned the EFL months ago about their club’s plight, but their messages were met with ‘a rather patronising’ statement that they would keep an eye on it.
And Richard the Gooner believes Benitez would have been a better fit to succeed Arsene Wenger as he would have started by strengthening their defence, which remains a big problem for the north London side.
Benitez’ defensive record speaks for itself, especially away from home where Arsenal have particularly struggled.
Last season, only champions Manchester City (11) and runners-up Liverpool (12) conceded fewer goals away from home than Newcastle United (23) in the Premier League.

And, speaking on Monday night’s Sports Bar, Richard admitted he is not convinced by his current boss.
“Unai Emery is basically a caretaker manager,” he said.
“The best Arsenal could have done was to appoint someone like Rafael Benitez.
“At least he would sort out our defence and then you can start again, and we’d also have a manager who has got some tactical nous.
“Poor old Unai hasn’t got any tactical nous!
“We’ve got a problem at Arsenal.
“There is not one single player who would get into the Liverpool or Man City sides.
“Of course we’ve all got to strive to catch these two clubs, but the reality is they are a long way ahead.
“There is a sense, certainly at Arsenal and Man United, of people searching for a bit of a fairy tale, but I just think it’s gone.”

The hosts recorded 80 per cent possession at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but were lacking in creativity with star playmaker Christian Eriksen starting the game on the bench.
Pochettino admitted following the game he is unsure if Eriksen, who came on in the second half, has played his final game for the club amid links with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The boss also conceded his Spurs squad is the ‘most unsettled’ it has ever been in his five years in charge, with the futures of a number of other first-team players also uncertain.
And Cundy says there is ‘something definitely not right’ at his former club under Pochettino.
“This Spurs side have promised so much,” said the Sports Bar host on Monday night.
“I think Pochettino has done a really good job with trying to mess with the big clubs in terms of what Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United have spent, and they still produce a brand of football that is attacking and open.
“I like the way he coaches players, he brings young players on, gets the best out of them and makes them better.
“But then you look back on their record over the last year, in all competitions they’ve lost 20 games over the last 12 months – that’s a horrendous record.
“You can’t do that, you can’t keep doing that.
“There’s something weird about Spurs at the moment. Something is definitely not right.”

The forward had another solid season in Serie A, scoring nine goals and adding six assists as Juventus were crowned Italian champions for an eighth successive season.
But Hatchard has doubts over the reported move, insisting a move away wouldn’t make sense for the player at this stage of his career.
“I don’t think this [will happen],” he told the Sports Bar.
“It will be a big surprise in the sense that you look at the clubs he’s played for in his career, and the fact he’s still performing at a decent level for Juve, it’s by no means certain Sarri would not want to use him.

“Obviously [Cristiano] Ronaldo is expected to have the central role, but Mandzukic, under [Max] Allegri, played well in a wide attacking role at times. So he is versatile, experienced and a real competitor.
“Juve may let him go, but I’d be very surprised if Everton are at the head of the queue for him.
“I think for his experience and quality Juventus would be mad to let him go at this stage.
Pressed on how much Juve would need to consider letting Mandzukic leave this summer, Hatchard continued: “Some reports were saying as little as €15m- which is mad! I don’t think that’s anywhere near enough.
“I think you’re looking at another €10m on top of that… maybe €25m or that kind of mark.”
Barcelona are using Philippe Coutinho in the wrong position and as a result he has struggled to perform for the club, European football expert Kevin Hatchard has told talkSPORT.
The Brazil playmaker has failed to justify his £142million transfer fee since leaving Liverpool for Barca in January 2018 – and he could even be SOLD this summer to end his Camp Nou nightmare.
The 27-year-old recorded just five goals and two assists in 34 LaLiga appearances last season, and doubts have been raised about his future at the club.
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have both been linked with summer moves for Coutinho, while a shock return to former club Liverpool has also been touted as a possibility.
And European football expert Hatchard revealed the reasons for Coutinho’s failure at Barcelona while speaking on talkSPORT’s Sports Bar.
“Ernesto Valverde is a fan [of Coutinho],” said Hatchard, “but it just hasn’t worked out yet despite him playing in lots of games
“I think a few things [have affected his time in Barcelona].

“There is a feeling Barcelona were labouring under the misapprehension that he could replace Andres Iniesta in the role Iniesta played – and Iniesta is a one-off, an extraordinary player.
“Coutinho is more effective when he’s farther up the pitch and can do more damage; I think that’s where he is more comfortable.
“So he got stuck [in the wrong position] and his confidence has been damaged.”
Hatchard continued to say that Barca chiefs could be tempted to sell Coutinho this summer – but only if they make back as much of the £142million fee they paid for him.
“This was his dream move; it was a move he desperately wanted,” he added. “There were not many clubs he was going to leave Liverpool for, and Barcelona managed to tempt him – and it just hasn’t worked out.
“Barcelona, if they can get anywhere near what they paid for him, that’s a deal they would do.”
West Ham have completed ‘one of the deals of the season’ by signing Sebastien Haller, European football expert Kevin Hatchard has told talkSPORT.
The Hammers announced Haller’s arrival in a deal worth up to £45million on Wednesday afternoon, with the striker passing a medical earlier this week.
He was NOT Manuel Pellegrini’s first-choice forward target this summer as West Ham hoped to sign Maxi Gomez, but Haller was chosen as the alternate option when Gomez decided to sign for Valencia instead of the Hammers.
And having decided to chase Haller, West Ham moved quickly to get his signing over the line as the 25-year-old was interesting other clubs across Europe following an impressive campaign for Eintracht Frankfurt.
He netted 20 goals in 41 games for the German side last season, in his second year in the Bundesliga following his 2017 transfer from FC Utrecht in the Netherlands.
But what will Haller bring to West Ham? European football expert Kevin Hatchard joined talkSPORT last week to profile the striker – and said if West Ham got his signing over the line, which they have now done, they would be completing ‘one of the deals of the season’.
Speaking to the Sports Bar, Hatchard said: “I think he [Haller] is a super player. He’s a centre-forward who is great at bringing others into play.

“You look at Eintracht’s front three from last season; they had Haller, Luka Jovic and Ante Rebic.
“And a lot of Jovic’s goals are because Haller has either set him up or has dragged a defender out the space Jovic moves into.
“His all-round game is great; he’s good in the air and a really good goalscorer.
“I think he’d be an absolute steal if West Ham could get him.
“The feeling amongst local journalists who follow Frankfurt is there is nothing concrete – but they certainly aren’t denying it. And there have been widespread reports that it has moved on and Haller is very strongly linked to West Ham.
“If they can get it done, I think it could be one of the deals of the season.”
