National Team Coach: Gareth Southgate
Southgate has transform England into a force and that mainly down to him picking players inform rather than reputations. UEFA has made his life slightly easier having increase squad limit to 26 which means he can pick players who are in form and also some players on reputation without making the headlines. Southgate is likely to play 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 system depending on opposition with Harry Kane as the focal point in attack. With 26 man squad he will have the players to tweak and adjust system if needed for example Trent Alexander Arnold can be a good fit in 3-4-3 while Kyle Walker can start in 4-3-3 system. Same goes Sterling, Sancho and Rashford in 4-3-3 while players like Mason Mount, Jack Grealish and Saka are more suited as inverted wingers.
Possible Starting Lineup for England In Euro 2020:
Raheem Sterling and Rashford both have had decent campaign with their clubs however there are players like Mason Mount, Phil Fodden and Jack Grealish who played much better and might be given a chance in starting lineup. But considering its England who usually start with players reputations we can expect front trio of Sterling, Rashford and Kane.
Mason Mount & Phil Foden are Champions League finalists for 2020/21.
Players To watch out for: Harry Kane won the golden boot in FIFA World Cup 2018 and he is odds on favourite to repeat the feat in Euro 2020. However England have some exciting youngsters who burst on to the scene in 2020/21 season with the likes of Phil Fodden and Mason Mount. Both are playing Champions League final before the tournament starts and we select these two as players to watch out for in this English setup.
