BBC Made A 2015 Prediction For England's Euro 2020 Squad

BBC Made A 2015 Prediction For England's Euro 2020 Squad

The BBC attempted to predict England's Euro 2020 starting eleven back in 2015 and it features some truly appalling calls.

England boss Gareth Southgate will be finalising his squad that he picks for the upcoming Euro's over the next few months.

The BBC attempted to predict how the Three Lion's would line up and there are a few unexpected names in the list.

Check out the predicted team below.

Up front sees regulars Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling who were young upstarts back in 2015.

The third man? Nathan Redmond.

Redmond was at Norwich City in 2015 and they went on to get relegated in 2016.

He currently finds himself as Southampton's shining light as they battle relegation for the third successive season.

In terms of attacking, it's safe to say that nobody predicted Marcus Rashford just a year before he burst on the scene.

Some comments on the article ask for players such as Andy Carroll, Saido Berahino and Danny Ings to be included.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Joe Hart was England's undisputed number one for over half a decade so it wasn't crazy to think he'd be between the sticks.

But Pep Guardiola's arrival at Manchester City saw Hart slip down the pecking order at the Etihad.

He is now second choice at Burnley after underwhelming loan spells at Torino in Serie A as well as West Ham United.

The only defender who regularly features is John Stones.

Eric Dier was in England's World Cup squad in 2018 but saw himself utilised as a midfielder.

Luke Shaw and Nathaniel Clyne have seen their careers ravaged by injury.

The midfield features Jordan Henderson and Ross Barkley who are regulars in Southgate's squads to this day.

Whereas Jack Wilshere has found himself at West Ham struggling to fulfill the potential he once showed.

One comment did tip Dele Alli for the England squad which was a superb prediction.

Alli had just signed for Tottenham Hotspur from MK Dons for a fee of £5 million and would join Spurs in the coming summer.
