Euro 2020: How England Should Lineup

England is regarded as one of the most prestigious and well-known footballing nations in the world.

Whether it’s through the development of generational talent or intense league action.

They are regarded as one of the world’s top five footballing nations.

In terms of the Euros, England has won the competition twice and is looking to return to the top.

As of now, the English people are still waiting for a major European trophy to return home.

Can they do it again this year? With the team they have, they should be able to pull it off.

Gareth Southgate has been the England manager since November of 2016.

Gareth Southgate is the current England coach

He has yet to receive his major winner’s medal, however. He assisted the national team in reaching the Euros and finishing fourth in the 2018 World Cup.

England currently has a plethora of talented players, both young and experienced.

The English national team is currently ranked fourth in FIFA’s World Rankings.

They are in Eurogroup D, which includes Croatia, Scotland, and the Czech Republic.

Southgate believes that his current squad of 26 players can lead England to victory at the Euros.

England has already played their first match at Euro 2020, defeating Croatia 1-0.

Was Gareth’s choice of players in that victory, however, the best he could have made? Or are there more talented players?

Gareth Southgate is known for calling up unexpected players to the national camp and assigning them to random positions.

Looking at the current 26-man squad, we believe we have the perfect lineup for England to reach the final and, if the tactics are correct, even win it.


This is one of the jobs where there isn’t a lot of competition. Dean Henderson was named the team’s starting quarterback.

Dean Henderson is out with an injury.

He recently suffered an injury and was replaced by Aaron Ramsdale.

As a result, Jordan Pickford, who has been out of form, is given the nod to be the primary goalkeeper.

Jordan Pickford is England’s first-choice goalkeeper.
Along with Jordan, Sam Johnstone will have the opportunity to represent his country.

Johnstone, S am

New England’s Youth Sam Johnstone is the goalkeeper.
Aaron and Sam both have limited international experience and have had a mixed bag of results for their club.

As a result, Jordan Pickford will be the Euros’ starting goalkeeper.

Defenders There aren’t a lot of experienced defenders who can play for England at the international level.

Gareth Southgate, on the other hand, has chosen five center-backs and five wing-backs/full-backs for the tournament.

Rarely does a manager select this many fullbacks for the national team?

Despite not being fully fit, Harry Maguire is an important member of the defense as the tournament progresses.

Players such as Tyrone Mings, Conor Coady, John Stones, and Ben White are present to work with Harry.

Harry Maguire and John Stones are the ideal candidates for the ideal center-back pairing.

Stones and Maguire

Maguire and Stones are the first-choice center-backs.
This season, Stones has resurrected his career as the number one choice for Manchester City alongside Ruben Dias, while Maguire is the captain of Manchester United.

In terms of fullbacks, Gareth Southgate occasionally uses an out-and-out right back as a left back or vice versa.

So Kyle Walker as right back and Ben Chilwell as left back are the best options for the two full-back positions.

As a result, the back four will be Walker, Stones, Maguire, and Chilwell, with Pickford in goal.

Midfielders England has a plethora of young and talented attackers ready to lead the front line at the Euros.

They have a lot of talent, especially young up-and-coming midfielders, wingers, and strikers.

Southgate has given the go-ahead for Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice, and Jordan Henderson to play in the midfield.

In addition, he has chosen 17-year-old Jude Bellingham to be a member of his squad. If Jude scores, he will become England’s youngest player to do so at the Euros.

Looking at the depth, Declan Rice and Mason Mount’s partnership will be a good fit for the starting XI.

Friends since childhood, now international teammates: Rice and Mount
If we go for the experience, Jordan Henderson could start, but he hasn’t been in good form recently.

Others, on the other hand, lack the necessary experience to slot right into the starting eleven.

As a result, Declan Rice and Mason Mount will form an ideal partnership in the midfield.

Attackers England has the most talent in this position, and their squad is probably the most crowded.

From the wings to the attacking midfield role alongside the striker, every position is brimming with talent.

Players like Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, and Bukayo Saka can play both sides of the wing.

Rashford and Sterling, on the other hand, can both play as strikers.

Both Phil Foden and Mason Mount are vying for the number 10 position, also known as the CAM position.

Foden, Phil

Phil Foden is a generational talent.
Because Mount will be partnering with Rice in the heart, Foden is an ideal fit.

Harry Kane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin lead the front line for the starting number nine.

The left-wing position is one of the most difficult to fill because any attacker can play there.

As a result, selecting the best player from among the available talent will be difficult. However, based on his performance at the club level, Jack Grealish will be an ideal fit.

Grealish, Jack

Both Sancho and Rashford are candidates for the right wing. Both are in peak condition, and either will be a good fit.

Harry Kane will play as the striker. He is the squad’s captain and the best man to lead the line for England.

The Future Lineup

Gareth Southgate and his tactics will determine England’s best possible lineup for success in the Euros.

The formation for this team will be a 4-2-3-1 with two fullbacks who will switch to wing-backs and one holding midfielder and one box-to-box midfielder.

The front line will be led by one CAM, two wingers, and one attacker.
