    With three back line and wing backs tried recently, I have something like this in mind.
    Though it's a concern that so many players are out of form, injured or dropped by their team.


    Butland

    Jones - Stones - Gomez

    Walker - Wilshere - Dier - Rose

    Lallana - Sterling

    Kane

    Genuinely can't make a case for any Keepers to start, if you went on form it would have to be Nick Pope!

    I'll go with

    Butland
    Walker - Dier - Stones - Smalling - Rose
    Alli - Henderson
    Sterling - Kane - Rashford

    Maguires arguably been better than all 3 of them CB's this season. Definatley Smalling anyway.

    If England are going to play with 3 CB’s and wing backs. Then Conor Coady should be in with a shout for the squad. He is superb in the centre of the back 3, his passing has been immense this season and works perfectly mopping up behind 2 more physical CB’s.

    I realise this won’t happen as he isn’t in the Premier League yet but, he’s been really good for us this season and he knows the system perfectly.

    We’ve found our new Ben Gibson/Lewis Dunk for next season.

    I'd love to see Trent Alexander-Arnold given a run out as the right wing back, think the position would suit him down to the ground.

    Glad he seems to finally be progressing. Always had tons of potential whilst at Liverpool, but looked another one of those potential stars that faded into a lower/non league player. Will be great to see how he fairs in the Premier League next season.

    That's how I think he will line up. If the formation isn't quite working then Dier goes into the middle with the full backs dropping to a back 4 and Wilshere pushes into a more attacking role behind Kane with Dele and Sterling.

    3 at the back seeing as that's what we've been doing for a while now. FFS don't do what Hodgson did at the Euros and change it all last minute.

    Pickford

    Stones
    Maguire
    Walker

    Alexander-Arnold
    Henderson
    Milner (convince him to come back)
    Rose

    Sterling
    Rashford
    Kane

    Really don’t want Trent to get a call up he should stay with the u21s for now.

    (If I was manager):

    4-3-3

    Butland

    Walker, Stones, Tarkowski, Rose

    Alli, Dier, Wilshere

    Sterling, Kane, Rashford

    (What I THINK Southgate will play):

    3-4-3

    Pickford

    Stones, Jones, Maguire

    Walker, Henderson, Alli, Rose

    Sterling, Kane, Rashford

    Not really sure about our defensive options at the moment- I'd be more confident with Cahill but he seems out of the frame. Also, Henderson could easily be swapped for Dier and Alli for Lingard. Not too sure how Alli would play in a refined role, but I back Southgate to play him for the link with Kane. Let me know what you think.

    Yeah same, plus training with Walker (one of the best in the world in this position) will only make him better. I'd like to see him play as an understudy to Walker; but I'd still take him.

    Why? He's playing in the starting line up of a team who are in the CL semis. He had one of the best wingers in Europe in his pocket over 2 legs. I like trippier as a player but I think TAA is the real deal.

    Just think it’s too soon for him personally, I think he would jump at the chance though he is super confident he’s already said he will be Liverpool Captain one day.

    Agree with TAA being be the real deal, that said Klopp is protecting him by only playing him once a week. He’s an enthusiastic 19 year old and he’d run himself into the ground at a tournament with games every four days.

    If it’s to rotate with walker/trippier then I would be happy with that.

    James Milner

    James Maddison

    Ryan Sessegnon

    All should be on the plane.

    Thoughts?
