England’s starting line-up vs Switzerland

Southgate looks set to make a host of changes for England’s second game in four days against Switzerland.

Captain Harry Kane will be rested, with only Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford maintaining their places from the defeat to Spain.

Most notably, Kyle Walker returns to his experimental role as a right-sided centre-back in a back-three.

The Manchester City defender was benched for Joe Gomez against Spain whilst Kieran Trippier started in his favoured full-back slot.

The debate will now be around whether the 28-year-old has lost his place in England’s usual line-up.

The 22-year-old picked up the injury during the Three Lions’ 2-1 defeat to Spain on Saturday.
