    What formation are we most likely to see? A back 5? Makes it so hard to choose the offensive players around Kane. I doubt Foden and Mount are going to play together unless it's a 4-3-3.

    It's Southgate. He also only took 5 CMs. It will be a 3-4-3.

    Pickford - Walker, Maguire, Stones - Trippier, Rice, Mount/Hendo, Shaw - Sterling, Kane, Rashford. He will go for the most conservative choices. Could even field both Rice and Hendo and shoehorn Mount at LW instead of Rashford/Sterling.

    I don't think Henderson or Maguire are going to be fit for the start of the tournament and in my opinion probably shouldn't even be in the squad.

    I hope England take advantage of their brilliant squad in the coming few years. It is unfortunate that they lost, but I think Italy deserved it, undoubtedly.

    How embarrassing / worrying...

    TalkSport news just said that Stones and Foden weren?t taken on the tour as neither of them reached the required fitness levels in the medical tests over the last few days.

    Gudogan also isn?t going but only because he?s only had one Covid19 jab .

    Foden and Stones were not taken for failing to meet the USA's entry requirements. It'll probably be the jab issue, but they've refused to confirm it.

    12 defenders in the most recent call up. Almost as many as midfielders and forwards combined
    Some are boring, some are not.

    Look at the number of those defenders compared to midfielders I would be fuming at Southgate every time the NT played if I were English

    Their midfield is so miserable. What's with the Prowse guy?

    It's defender-heavy because it'll be a 3-4-3 for both games. It's basically two for each position plus Trippier and Coady because he likes what they bring to the dressing room.

    Southgate is dreaming of one of these.

    I?m going with the Arsenal link with Ramsdale quick passes up to Saka , the Liverpool link with TAA and Henderson on the right ? plus Mings / Foden / Grealish links down the left

    Ok I am thinking crazy having everyone playing in their normal position .. oh well

    RAMSDALE ( OR PICKFORD )

    TAA. WHITE. MINGS. CHILWELL

    HENDERSON. BELLINGHAM. FODEN

    SAKA. KANE GREALISH

    Foden doesn't play in midfield.
