England's ENTIRE Team vs Croatia Has Been 'Leaked' With Kieran Trippier At Left-Back

England's line-up for their Euro 2020 opener against Croatia on Sunday has been revealed - with Kieran Trippier set to be handed a start at left-back.

The Atletico Madrid man naturally plays at right-back but is expected to get the nod ahead of Luke Shaw and Ben Chilwell.

Per The Athletic, Trippier will start in defence alongside Kyle Walker, John Stones and Tyrone Mings with Jordan Pickford in net.

Despite having a wealth of attacking midfield talent at his disposal, manager Gareth Southgate is expected to start with Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips behind Mason Mount.

In attack are Manchester City duo Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling either side of captain Harry Kane.

Sterling hasn't had the best of seasons at club level but is considered a reliable player by Southgate.

Marcus Rashford misses out also, despite captaining the Three Lions and scoring against Romania.

Foden has played just six games for his country so far but enjoyed a personal best season with City.

Defender Conor Coady told media earlier this week that the players have full faith in Southgate and any formation he uses.

The Wolves captain stated: "We're ready for whatever the manager wants to go with. There are world-class players who play in different ways for their clubs, different ways we try to bring together.

"Whatever way the manager wants to move forward it is fine by us.

"We have different styles of play and you can say that about the attack and midfield, we come from different clubs and play in different ways and come here to adapt as much as possible which we've done in the last week, we're working hard in training every day for that.

"As defenders we know we're here to be relied on and here to help as much as possible.

"All that bothers us is trying to help the team move forward and have a good tournament."

Do you agree with Gareth Southgate's potential England team? Will they defeat Croatia?
