England full starting line up vs Slovenia 'leaked' as Gareth Southgate makes huge decision that fans may not like

England full starting line up vs Slovenia 'leaked' as Gareth Southgate makes huge decision that fans may not like

The England starting XI has been 'leaked' ahead of the game against Slovenia

Gareth Southgate's starting XI to face Slovenia has been 'leaked' and England fans are not going to be pleased.

All 26 players trained for the first time on Monday when Manchester United defender Luke Shaw joined the session for the first time since the tournament started.

The left-back has been struggling with a hamstring issue after the conclusion of the Premier League season and Southgate has confirmed he is still not ready to feature in England's final group game.

Ahead of the clash, the England starting XI has been leaked, with Southgate making a huge call amid criticism from fans and ex-players.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to lose his place in the midfield and be replaced by Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

Cole Palmer and Anthony Gordon haven't tasted a minute of action thus far and reports suggest Southgate will keep the duo on the bench according to The Daily Mail.

The report claims Southgate is expected to remain faithful to the side that has started both group games with the exception of Alexander-Arnold.

Phil Foden will retain his place in the side despite calls for the England boss to try a more natural winger on the left.

Ollie Watkins is expected to be overlooked with Harry Kane leading the line.

Speaking about Foden's struggles at the tournament so far, Southgate concluded the entire team needed to create more and it would be unfair to lay blame at one player.

"Phil has played in several positions for us. I think he was as big a threat as anyone for us the other day," he said at the pre-match press conference.

"We know we need to create more as a team. It is not about one player, this is often where we get drawn into the wrong discussions. This is about a team functioning, a team working together, a team getting results.

"If it is about individuals you will not succeed. Our progress, big nights and tournaments have been about a team. Yes important players within that team, but our performances as a team."
