The centre half anxieties would be partly alleviated if we'd just called up Tomori.

Done well at AC Milan to the extent where they're buying him permanently. Possesses good pace so could easily bail out the more clumsy Stones/Mings, who do have some qualities.

I rate White but Coady + Mings over Tomori just doesn't make sense.

My team to face Croatia in a 5-2-3.

Pickford      James,Walker,Coady,Stones,Chilwell,Rice,Mount.          Foden,Kane,Sterling.

 

I'd play grealish or rashford instead of sterling. I cant believe how poor we are at centre back at the moment having to call up mings coady White. 10 years ago we were picking from Campbell terry ferdinand woodgate King carragher and upson.

Good call Rob... 

I can’t quite believe the first game is on Sunday! 

Phil Foden getting a Gazza cut has raised the excitement levels in my house considerably! Let’s hope he gets the chance to play!

What our 11 should be against Croatia, in my opinion - Pickford, James, Stones, White, Shaw, Rice, Bellingham, Mount, Foden, Sterling, Kane

What Southgate's 11 will likely be - Pickford, Walker, Stones, Mings, Chilwell, Rice, Phillips, Mount, Foden, Sterling/Rashford, Kane

Think Grealish could be our new Gazza , has to play , as does Foden.

Pickford

James. Stones. White. Shaw

Rice. Bellingham 

Grealish Mount Foden

Kane. 
 

I’d go with that. Coady can’t play in a back 2 and Mings is rubbish. Think we will play a back 5 though. With James or Walker moving into the middle. I do think trippier could also start. No doubt super raheem Sterling and rashford will start, I think they’re both very lucky to be included in the squad. Especially Sterling.

Agree that they're both quite lucky to make the squad, but Sterling is absolutely rapid and has elite level movement. So even when not on form he's still someone no opponent will want to play against. I think it's a certainty that he will start, as Harry Kane, leaving one other position to fill between Foden, Grealish and Rashford. Whoever starts, one thing for sure is that we will have one heck of a strong bench. Much, much better than it was in 2018.

Thirty years of hurt, never stopped me dreaming. However 50+ years of hurt has.  I am fortunate enough to remember our 1966 win as a football mad 8 year old.  Tend to find myself now on a downward curve as regards excitement as each tournament approaches and England invariably disappoint. Of course I will watch the games but for me will very much have the feel of watching the Vale in the EFL cup.

England have some special players at the moment but my concern is that Southgate isn't a good enough tactician to play the players that play best with each other. He somehow has to find a way to play Kane, Grealish, Mount, Bellingham and Foden together and not to play too defensively.

Sterling is either out of form or Southgate doesn't know his best role so he's on the bench for me.
