Three Surprising Players That Could Start For England at Euro 2021


Potential starters for England at Euro 2021

Following UEFA's announcement that Euro 2020 will be postponed until the summer of 2021, we've looked into four players that could be starting for England next year.

With so much time between now and then, there is the opportunity for certain players to develop and impress, which could potentially earn them a place in Gareth Southgate's squad for Euro 2021. As the likes of Mason Greenwood continued to bag for Manchester United, the Three Lions boss certainly will have some tough decisions to make next year.

At the same time, players such as Dean Henderson have been pushing Jordan Pickford for the spot for England's number one.

Take a read of our selections and let us know if you agree. Most importantly too, if we've missed anyone out!

Mason Greenwood

Mason Greenwood has certainly enjoyed a major breakthrough season at Manchester United, scoring 11 goals in his first senior campaign with his boyhood club,

The 18-year-old looks to be yet another fine product to emerge from the club's academy, gaining praise from fans and pundits for his mature and clinical nature in-front of goal. Gary Neville even labelled the forward as a 'better finisher' than Marcus Rashford earlier on in the season, highlighting just how impressive the youngster has been.

Greenwood's goals have typically come in the same fashion, with the left-footer coming in off the right on his stronger foot, dancing in and around the opposition's box. Whilst many youngsters take time to settle in and find their feet, the Englishman looks right at home in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's dynamic side.

Should the striker get another full-season under his belt, there is no reason why he can't push to be in Southgate's squad next year. After his development in his debut campaign, we expect to see him in United's starting XI a little more next season.

Kalvin Philips

Talk about just how important a manager's impact can have on a player.

Since Marcelo Beilsa arrived at Leeds United last season, Kalvin Philips has transformed into the Championship's best holding midfielder. Predominately sitting behind Mateusz Klich and Pablo Hernandez, the Englishman anchors the midfield three so efficiently, as he allows his two partners to press forward into advanced areas.

Leeds have kept fourteen league clean sheets with him on the field this season, showcasing just how strong the side are defensively, with him in-front of the orthodox back four.

Some fans may argue against his inclusion on our list, simply because he plays in the Championship, but in a position where England are currently lacking in not only depth but quality, Philips could be prove to be a little gem in this regard.

It must also be considered that the player will most likely find himself playing in the Premier League next season, whether it be with Leeds or not.

Dean Henderson

For the first time in a long time, England actually have some quality between the sticks to choose from.

It would be rude to leave Dean Henderson off this list, following both his and Sheffield United's heroics this season. The Blades have conceded just twenty-five goals in the league, with only Liverpool boasting a better defensive record.

Whilst we can pay huge credit to Chris Wilder's industrious system for this, we must also recognise the individual brilliance of Henderson this season. We have seen the 22-year-old pull off some wonder saves, with the one against Liverpool back in January particularly springing to mind.

With ten PL clean sheets to his name, only Nick Pope has managed more. The Burnley goalkeeper is also worthy of a mention, but given Henderson's age, Southgate may prefer to play the long game and get him settled in this England side as soon as possible.

His future is unknown at present, with a decision set to be made on his loan deal. He has been so impressive though, that many United fans have been calling for him to take the number one spot at Old Trafford next season.
