England Starting XI Specials - First Euro 2020 Game

On 13th June, England will kick off their European Championship campaign, as they face Croatia on matchday one in Group D. Here we look at the potential starting line-ups that Gareth Southgate is likely to choose, as the Three Lions look to build on their fourth-place finish at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Pickford, Walker, Stones, Mings, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Mount, Sterling & Kane all to start: 14/1

The bookies' have this line-up as the favourite to be played against Croatia, as this features several players that Southgate regularly starts in Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Manchester City’s Kyle Walker and John Stones, as well as Declan Rice, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling and Three Lions captain Harry Kane.

With the extent of Manchester United captain Harry Maguire’s injury still relatively unknown in terms of timescale, there is a strong possibility that the 28-year-old centre-back will likely be rested if he doesn’t feature in England’s friendly match against Romania on Sunday, meaning that England will likely switch to a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish could be in consideration for a start in England’s opening match, however, Southgate usually tends to favour Mason Mount over the 25-year-old.

PICKFORD, WALKER, STONES, MINGS, SHAW, RICE, PHILLIPS, FODEN, MOUNT, STERLING & KANE ALL TO START @ 14/1

Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Mount, Rashford & Kane all to start: 22/1

With Maguire a doubt for the Croatia game at present, as well as the fact that Marcus Rashford hasn’t played a match for England since October’s 1-0 defeat to Denmark at Wembley in the Nations League due to injury problems, this line-up is priced at 22/1 to happen.

If Maguire is fit enough to play, then he will likely start, whilst Rashford will need to impress against Romania, which could give him a good chance of starting for England despite looking in need of a rest having played 57 matches at club level this season. The 23-year-old has started in four of England’s last five competitive matches that he has been available for in the Nations League and European Championship Qualifiers, spanning back to October 2019.

PICKFORD, WALKER, STONES, MAGUIRE, SHAW, RICE, PHILLIPS, FODEN, MOUNT, RASHFORD & KANE ALL TO START @ 22/1

Pickford, James, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Foden, Mount, Kane & Sterling all to start: 28/1

At 28/1 this starting line-up has a good chance of being used, as England often tend to change up their formation and use a five at the back system in order to provide more defensive stability.

Chelsea’s Reece James has had an outstanding season, which was epitomised by his performance in the Champions League final, as his club went on to win the competition for the second time in their history.

Southgate used a 5-3-2 formation at the 2018 World Cup with Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli playing in more advanced roles in front of Jordan Henderson, with Kane and Sterling in attack, perhaps this could be the way forward with the young exciting talents of Mount and Phil Foden providing the legs and creativity in midfield just in front of Rice who will likely start following Henderson’s lack of game time for both club and country due to injury in the second half of the season.

PICKFORD, JAMES, WALKER, STONES, MAGUIRE, SHAW, RICE, FODEN, MOUNT, KANE & STERLING ALL TO START: @ 28/1

Pickford, James, Walker, Coady, Stones, Chilwell, Rice, Mount, Phillips, Foden & Kane all to start: 40/1

Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back Conor Coady has been brought into this line-up having started in five of the last eight matches he has been included in the Three Lions squad, meaning that there is a good chance that he may deputise for Maguire if the United man fails to recover to full fitness before England take on Croatia.

Southgate has also previously opted to play two defensive midfielders in front of a back five, of which Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips has often been given the nod to play in one of these roles. The 25-year-old has started in six of the last eight international matches that he has been available for and was left on the bench against Austria, meaning that he will likely play against Romania in what would be his eighth cap for his country.

Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell could also get the nod over Luke Shaw, having regularly featured as a left-wing-back for the Blues, since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge in January.

PICKFORD, JAMES, WALKER, COADY, STONES, CHILWELL, RICE, MOUNT, PHILLIPS, FODEN & KANE ALL TO START @ 40/1

Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Henderson, Grealish, Rashford, Sterling & Kane all to start: 100/1

This line-up is priced at 100/1 due to several reasons, England’s tendency to rotate between four and five at the back, as well as the reliance on both Maguire and Henderson both to start despite being potential fitness doubts, as well as Grealish to start instead of Mount.

Mount has played in all but two of England’s matches since becoming a regular starter for Chelsea at the 2019/20 season under Frank Lampard. The two matches that the 20-year-old has missed for the Three Lions are Iceland away in the Nations League back in September 2020 and the last friendly match against Austria, due to him being given time off having played in Chelsea’s Champions League final win over City.
