One of most debated topics regarding England at Euro 2020 is how will Gareth Southgate fit all the attacking flair into one team. With an all English team Champions League Final, English football looks to be on the up due to the rise of young attacking players such as Mason Mount and Phil Foden. This is where everyone will have their own opinion on who should play at the Euro.
Our England Team Prediction
We have formed our England Euro 2020 Team Prediction based on our own opinion of who should play and also taking into account who we think Gareth Southgate will pick. Select your own starting 11 using the BBC team predictor.
In goal we have gone for Jordan Pickford, this is due to there not being too much between the goalkeepers. Gareth Southgate seems to trust Pickford the most out of the three he has picked and for England he has never put a foot wrong.
There is a debate over whether England will go for a 3 or 4 at the back formation, we have chosen a 4 at the back formation and believe the defenders pick themselves. Harry Maguire’s fitness is an issue, if he is unavailable then a 3 at the back formation will be more likely to have more cover at the back. In a 4, Walker and Stones are used to playing with each other at Man City and likewise Maguire and Shaw have a good connection at Man United.
In midfield we have picked Declan Rice as the holding midfielder, he has impressed for West Ham this season and there are question marks over Jordan Henderson’s fitness. Jude Bellingham has been outstanding this season and will give a lot of energy in the midfield as well as his eye for a pass. Mason Mount is a favourite of Gareth Southgate and will add some creativity in the middle with his progressive style of play
Ideally, we would like to see Grealish on the left side but the Rashford and Shaw link up is too good to break up. Harry Kane will captain England at Euro 2020 and will be England’s main goal threat. The front three we have gone for will provide the team with a good balance of pace and trickery which their opposition will fear.
