England and how they can lineup against Denmark in thee next match

During England's Euro 2024 Group C match against Denmark at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt on Thursday, manager Gareth Southgate will choose whether to continue with his starting lineup or make a change

(Football news) Using a 4-2-3-1 formation, Southgate helped England defeat Serbia 1-0 on Sunday. John Stones, who had been out sick, was able to play alongside Marc Guehi in central defense and contribute to the team’s clean sheet.

Luke Shaw has been ruled out of Thursday’s game as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury that has kept him out of action since February. Both players are expected to start in the back four alongside full-backs Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier. The latter experienced cramps toward the end of the victory over Serbia, but he should be fit to start at left-back.

The most eye-catching selection in Southgate’s first XI from matchday one was that of Trent Alexander-Arnold playing in midfield alongside Declan Rice. The Liverpool man could be given another chance to prove his worth from the off, but he faces competition from the likes of Conor Gallagher and Kobbie Mainoo to keep his starting spot.

Phil Foden struggled to make the desired impact on the left wing against Serbia and drifted inside on countless occasions to try to put his stamp on the match. The Manchester City star would prefer to operate in the number 10 role or on the right flank, but midfield sensation Jude Bellingham – the match-winner against Serbia – is expected to continue in an advanced central role, with Bukayo Saka playing on the right.

Southgate is therefore likely to stick with Foden on the left or opt for a change in personnel and hand either Anthony Gordon, Cole Palmer or Eberechi Eze a start, while captain Harry Kane should lead the line once again, despite enduring a quiet outing against Serbia.

England possible starting lineup: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Alexander-Arnold, Rice; Saka, Bellingham, Foden; Kane.
