The Three Lions take on Spain in their first ever fixture in the Nations League, UEFA’s new tournament that has replaced international friendlies.
Its time for Southgate’s men to show wether they remain the same old England squad who only takes victory from media’s or the England squad who made a mark as the fourth best in the world.
Southgate would consider some rotations since Raheem Sterling will miss due to back problem and Adam Lallana was withdrawn due to injury.
We believe England manager would opt for the traditional 3:5:2. As we tipped Everton’s No. 1 to remain in No.1 spot.
Kyle Walker, John Stones and Harry Maguire should remain as the back-line.
Luke Shaw who appears to have improved after watching his side in the World Cup.
He is currently the first choice above Ashley Young in Jose Mourinho’s radar.
Southgate can Now boast of a natural left footers player as he takes the left-wing.
While Trippier could be used ahead of Gomez who impressed in Liverpool shirt. However Gomez could play as a right or full back.
Jordan Henderson will join them in the midfield with two extra bodies in Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard. Captain Harry Kane will be supported by Rashford.
Since the three Lions will play against such giants, they are likely to play with pace on a counter in other to get at them.
