England Euro 2024 team selector: Your starting XI to face Serbia in Three Lions’ tournament opener

Must read

We now know Gareth Southgate’s 26-player England squad for Euro 2024, but who should start for the Three Lions against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen?

Harry Maguire’s absence from the squad has opened up an opportunity at the heart of the England defence. Who will get the chance to partner John Stones? Will Kieran Trippier fill the left-back roles with Luke Shaw still getting back to full fitness?

Will Trent Alexander-Arnold feature in midfield? Will Conor Gallagher start? Or will England new boys Adam Wharton and Kobbie Mainoo get the chance alongside Declan Rice in the middle of the park?

Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden and Harry Kane are sure to be certain starters for many, but will Bukayo Saka make up the forward line? or will Cole Palmer’s Chelsea form see him start against Serbia?
