    Pretty much go along with that,but would think joe hart will be in there the other three keepers have no real international experience more so tournament finals,the.young fella Sessegnon don’t think will make it,but like you I would have him in fantastic young player with huge potential,would love us to go for him and he’s quick as fuck ...

    He's likely to go to Spurs, which is a pity.

    Goalkeepers:
    Pope, Pickford, Hart/Butland

    Defenders:
    Tripper, Walker, Bertrand, Maguire, Tarkowski, Stones

    Defenders/Midfielders:
    Delph, Dier

    Midfielders:
    Henderson, Shelvey, Loftus-Cheek, Alli, Lingard

    Forwards:
    Vardy, Kane, Rashford, Sterling

    Youngsters for the experience:
    Sessegnon, Foden

    Get out of retirement:
    Milner

    Rose and Lallana miss out through injury problems. Butland misses out, I think he's as shit as Hart has been, at least Hart has experience. All United defenders miss out as they don't fit the style and only even look half decent due to Mourinho's anti-football.

    Starting XI:
    -------------------------------Pope
    Walker-----------Stones-----------Maguire----------Delph
    --------------------Dier--------------Henderson
    Sterling---------------------?????????----------------??????????
    -------------------------------Kane

    Final 2 places decided between Alli, Vardy, Lingard and Rashford

    if Stones Walker and Delph don't start in defence then I'd question Southgate. The issue is midfield there is just no quality at all. Alli and that's it. upfront you've got a greedy striker not interested in team play and the best player in Sterling that they prefer to boo.
