Espn experts views never matches with that of the coach. I have seen this happening most of the times across countries/clubs. Just look at today's England team.

Its so funny how people are so negative and want to be right that we will go out early as if its some kind of personal victory.. only English people are so negative in their mentality, and I'm pretty sure they are negative about most things in life, in no other country ive visited and people I've spoke to have I ever...EVER heard people speak such negativity towards something they claim to love and watch and enjoy .., but this is part of the reason I'm emigrating to live a better life and leave the misery that is england and miserable bastards I see every day moaning their lives away... so thank you for that, you made me want to be part of something better, cos your part of the problem, and you made me think of being part of the solution... , say what you want.. I don't really care, if its negativity its stemmed from jealousy, and if its positivity and understanding then I wish u all the best.. I will not be replying..

It will be too little too late. I would play to our strength and utilise the attacking options at our disposal. High tempo, high energy, pressing high up the pitch and imposing constant pressure game. The truth is he is going to go with a back 5, and wing backs, he will sacrifice an attacking flair player in order to play a defensive/holding midfielder. We are better suited, and have always had more success when we play a typical English style of football. I have doubts about our ability to come from behind in the case of conceding an early goal. Our tendency to rely on counter attacking is an easy threat to deal with, when a decent team has taken the lead, such as Italy etc....we are more likely to concede again in the pursuit of forcing the game.

It should be 4-3-3, England need to play with his strength their attacking ability, they cant afford to sit back like World Cup 2018 because now England has the likes of sancho/ grealish/ mount/ foden. In center back it should be ben white- john stone, please dont play tyrone mings, he isnt good enough.

Southgate is totally gonna bottle this. Some amazing talent but his precious favourites will cost us. Sticking with Henderson despite Phillips having a great season and solid England performances along with Bellingham coming through make his place in the squad a total waste for me Mings is a disaster waiting to happen. Been getting away with assault for years now and he's gonna get found out if he plays. Mount Foden and Grealish would all start for me.

With a coach like that i don't expect anything from england but to underperfom like they always dod since 1966 , he always has horrible selection choices , if Sterling and Handerson started that would be the end of this team , they should be the Euros favorites along with France but they always manage to play rubbish in important stages of any competition .

I believe having it too attacking is same mistake that Lampard did with Chelsea. Chelsea was very poor on transitions, untill unless the attacking midfielders in whatever formation know their roles and responsibilities very well during defensive duties and can recover ball, and read oppositions game, there is no point of playing Mount, Foden or Grealish out of position too deep in Midfield. In modern game, Declan Rice will need one more box-to-box persson along side him. I would leave a attacking player in starting elevan, but defensive shape cannot be compromised.

Dennis Irwin won all sorts with Man Utd playing left back, even though he's primarily right footed! He's not the only right footed player to have successfully played left back, or on the left side of defence either. Juls' ridiculous claim that you can't bring the ball out of the left side of defence if you're right footed is so clueless and wrong it's embarrassing.

I love how they'd sit here and squabble over the formation that WILL work. Then switch to the next team to discuss the formation that WILL work as well. There can be only one winner of a tournament, but somehow pundits act as thought everyone of them SHOULD win it. Not COULD win it. Jules, you been at this a long time. There's gotta be a better way to discuss your disgust and bias.

Johnstone Walker---White---Maguire---Shaw Phillips Sancho---Mount---Grealish---Phoden Kane Potential Subs: Bellingham for Mount, Rice for Phillips, Rashford for Sancho, Chillwell for Shaw
