Looking forward to the Summer and the Euro's I thought I would have a look at the squad I would be taking to them. 

Keepers- 

Pickford, Pope, Henderson, 

Right backs

Alexander-Arnold, James

left backs

Chilwell, Shaw

Centre backs

Stones, Maguire, Keane, Gomez, Mings(if Southgate will play 3 at the back, I wouldn't, also I dont know if Gomez will be fit by end of the season)

Midfielders

Rice, Mount, Foden, Maddison, Henderson, Sterling, Sancho, Grealish, Philips

Attackers

Kane, Rashford, Calvin-Lewin

Just play less internationals full stop, then you don’t have to make up a convoluted competition to replace friendlies. All you need is Qualifiers, a few warm up games before a tournament and the tour

Harry Winks for Jordan Henderson is the most unnecessarily conservative and pointless sub that could have been made too. Martin Tyler is a nauseating propaganda machine for the Nations League too

Southgate beat Spain the last time he faced them..............

I think keepers you've got to consider McCarthy given the season hes been having (excluding the 9-0) over henderson who's not playing. Also there was a story going round about how Martinez could be eligible for England now, it wont happen but I would love that. Really rate him. 

 

Right back, wan bissaka and trippier would be unlucky to miss out but in who's place. It's a difficult position to chose with the talent available. TAA, I'd be tempted to leave out, not having a great season and I dont think we've got the defence that liverpool had when he was firing. 

Centre back I cant see gomez being fit in time and certainly not back to his best so id take coady.

 

Cant argue with the rest but I dont envy who has to pick the starting 11.

Left Backs: Shaw, Saka

Centre Backs: Stones, Maguire, Keane, Godfrey

Midfielders: Rice, Henderson, Grealish, Foden, Mount, Maddison

Attackers: Kane, Sterling, Rashford, Sancho, Bamford, Calvert-Lewin

 

As for the starting 11 I'd go with.

                             Pope

Trippier     Maguire        Stones     Shaw

                              Rice
           Henderson           Grealish

Pope, Pickford, Johnstone

Alexander Arnold, Shaw, Chilwell, Tarkowski, Stones, Maguire, Mings, James

Henderson, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Grealish, Mount, Maddison

Kane, Calvert Lewin, Rashford, Sterling, Sancho

 

Pope

Alexander Arnold Stones Tarkowski Shaw

Henderson Rice

Sancho Foden Sterling

Kane

Any of the centre backs next to Stones would be ok, ive assumed Gomez is out.

Not Rice's biggest fan but he would give a bit more defensive solidity and allow the front 4 to attack. Grealish v Sancho is 50/50.

No Michael Keane or Ben Godfrey in squad after Everton form this season but Tarkowski from.a side in bottom 6 @roversfan99?

Godfrey has impressed but year on year, Tarkowski shows how good a defender he is. Burnley are less dominant than Everton but have actually conceded 3 less goals.

Centre back is a position where we have lots of ok players, but none are stand out, bar Stones and even he has only come back into the picture this season.

Tarkowski for one is about 8th on my list. Mings is better defender. Coady, Godfrey and Keane all ahead of him. 

Stones and Maguire are the stand out in that position now

I think Coady only even get's into consideration if you are going to play a back 5/3. I don't think he looks very good in a 4.

For me:

 

Pope

Trippier Stones Maguire Shaw

Henderson Rice

Foden Mount Grealish 

Kane

 

 

How can you not have Sancho or Sterling in the starting 11?

In fairness i havent seen Sancho too much this season so dont know what kind of form he's in. Sterling, I really dont rate for England, he's a good player in a city side where the other 10 players create space and a shed load of chances each game but for England he wont get that space or those chances.

Sancho has 10 goals and 15 assists this season

Tarkowski has proved how good a defender he is over a number of seasons, Burnley have conceded less than Everton and Man United this season. I suspect that playing for an unfashionable club and as he isnt a ball playing centre back (although he is comfortable on the ball) that he will be dismissed as you are doing.

Does Maguire get in without the 80m price tag? I would say not, but as a big money signing at United, he will be deemed first pick even though I would be more wary of a mistake from him.

I would have picked Maguire when he was at Leicester. I have rated him for a few years now. 

Keane was excellent last night against Liverpool.

England have got an absolutely outrageous amount of attacking talent - Kane and Calvert-Lewin are fantastic target men. Sancho, Sterling, Foden, Grealish, Rashford, Maddison all excellent inside forwards. It's an incredible pool to choose from.

"Proper midfielders" are a bit more mixed. I'm not 100% sold on Rice, Henderson is looking off the pace. After those two it get pretty slim pretty quickly. C

Full backs we have very good options. 

Centreback is utterly terrible though. I will be surprised if Southgate switches to four at the back after persevering with three for so long. But then if he does that he's leaving out one superb attacker for a third rubbish centreback.

Goalkeepers quite poor by international standards.

Looking at the squad you would be tempted to just go for a Keegan Hari-Kari kind of approach as it really is forwards where our assets lie.

Shame really as a couple of decent centrebacks and we could go into the tournament quite confident, but you'd have to say it's going to be a bit unpredictable.
