Saka a ‘shoo-in’ for Jordan Davies England XI
Here, our SunSport reporters pick their England squad and first XI for our opener against Iran on November 21.
No way Maguire makes the starting XI — he is a walking disaster.
Having four at the back will allow the midfield three, Mount especially, to venture forward more.
Saka must be a shoo-in for his attacking threat. Alexander-Arnold, who has the X-factor the squad could need, goes ahead of Trippier.
SQUAD: Pickford, Pope, Ramsdale, Stones, Dier, Maguire, Coady, White, Tomori, Shaw, James, Alexander-Arnold, Walker, Chilwell, Rice, Bellingham, J Henderson, Mount, Phillips, Kane, Saka, Foden, Sterling, Abraham, Rashford, Grealish.
LINE-UP: Pickford; James, Stones, Dier, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Mount; Saka, Kane, Sterling (4-3-3)
