Gareth Southgate tonight reverts to a back four against Ukraine as Jadon Sancho gets a chance to shine.

Bukayo Saka doesn’t make the squad after suffering a "slight knock" in training. Mason Mount is recalled after returning from isolation.

There are also increased calls for Jack Grealish to start tonight’s Euro 2020 quarter-final in Rome after his game-changing introduction against Germany at Wembley, but he is on the bench.

Southgate had decisions to make about four players walking a tightrope on yellow cards - Harry Maguire, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips and Phil Foden. The first three all start.

Those bookings would expire after this round, but those players risk missing the semi-final if they pick up another yellow at the Stadio Olimpico.

Ukraine are without striker Artem Besedin, who suffered a serious knee injury during a wild challenge from Sweden defender Marcus Danielson that earned the latter a red card in extra time at Hampden Park on Tuesday.

Here is how the two sides shape up...
