What does the starting line-up look like for England?

The current coach, Gareth Southgate likes not careful play at the back, instead of rushing forward to attack, looking for opportunities to thread a through ball in and launch a quick counter-attack.

If online reports are to be believed, the team might play 4-3-3 in the beginning, and gradually switch to either defensive 4-2-3-1 or offensive 3-4-3.

If 3-4-3 then the starting eleven will look like this: Pickford – Walker, Maguire, Stones – James, Phillips, Rice, Trippier – Sterling, Kane, Grealish

If they play 4-2-3-1 then: Pickford – Walker, Maguire, Stones, Trippier – Phillips, Rice – Saka, Mount, Sterling – Kane
