Manager: Gareth Southgate.

Jordan Pickford is well settled in the main xi and the Everton keeper has just conceded 2 goals throughout the entire UEFA European Championship. Pickford is pretty much experienced after featuring for his national side in 2018 FIFA WC and the 2020 UEFA Euro. Thus undoubtedly he will be Southgate’s number one pick. Aaron Ramsdale who joined Arsenal after the Euro. will be the 2nd choice keeper for the side with Sam Johnstone being the 3rd possible stopper.

English head coach named 10 defenders out of his 26 man squad at the Euro. He generally fields 4 or 5 defenders in a match. The center back positions will be occupied by Man Utd captain Harry Maguire and Man City man John Stones. While Kyle Walker and Luke Shaw generally starts at the right and left side of the defense respectively. However, if the manager goes with an extra defender then Walker might get a more defensive role to play. In that case, Trippier is the most favorite option coming in. Apart from them, there are plenty more options as well. Wolves captain Coady, Aston Villa skipper Mings, Arsenal CB Ben White are the options at the center with Reece James and Ben Chilwell are the extra full/wing back options.

Rice and Philipps were the most selected options at the Mid throughout the Euro. But with the form Jude Bellingham is in, he might secure his place in the main xi at the upcoming World Cup. Jordan Henderson the All Reds skipper may come off the bench and might prove to be key substitution. Grealish, Foden, Mount and Sancho will be the vital attacking minded midfielders. But as far as we’ve studied Gareth Southgate’s plan, we believe no more than 2 of them will be selected in the xi and the other 2 or 3 will have to start from the bench. However, GS is a type of coach who loves to rotate his XI and we expect him to pick different midfield options for different games.

Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling has been the most vital attackers for England since the last World Cup. These 2 will be the certain starters. The Tottenham captain was the top scorer of the Russia World Cup and he will once again be the key player for the side for sure. With these 2 guys in the XI, we expect Rashford and Dominic Calvert Lewin to come in as substitute.

Predicted Starting Lineup:

Formation: 4-2-3-1 or 3-4-2-1

Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford.

Defense: Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire, John Stones, Luke Shaw.

Midfield: Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho.

Attack: Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling.
