Gareth Southgate should revert to a back three with wing-backs for Euro2020. And I would still start Trent Alexander-Arnold.
My formation would be different if Jordan Henderson was definitely going to be fit and ready but this seems unlikely.
But the current central midfield is not experienced enough to give protection to the defence so I would have three at the back and use Alexander-Arnold’s attacking ability along with Ben Chilwell’s.
We keep talking about playing to our attacking strengths. But like Portugal in 2016, we have to concentrate on not conceding first and the rest should follow.
Up front, Phil Foden gets in ahead of Marcus Rashford. Jude Bellingham should scrape into Southgate’s squad of 23 as he offers something different.
I don’t think Henderson will be 100 per cent fit and on too many occasions – although not the last World Cup – England have taken injured players.
Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Eric Dier, because of his versatility, all squeeze in. No place for James Maddison, Bukayo Saka, Kieran Trippier or Reece James.
SQUAD: Pickford, Pope, Henderson, Alexander-Arnold, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Dier, Mings, Chilwell, Shaw, Mount, Rice, Ward-Prowse, Bellingham, Sancho, Foden, Grealish, Kane, Sterling, Rashford, Calvert-Lewin, Ings.
