The England Euro 2020 manager is perspiring on the fitness of forwards Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford. But he has no such worries when it comes to attacking midfielders. England Vs Croatia Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard started for England in the World Cup semi-final in 2018, but Alli is clingy on to his place in the squad and Lingard will almost certainly miss out. Southgate is facing a conundrum who should come into the squad and who should start in that slot behind the forwards?
James Maddison, Leicester City
James Maddison made his England debut in November when he came on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a 7–0 win over Montenegro in qualifying. At the time, he was a frontrunner for the playmaker role in the team but his form has dipped badly in the last few months.
He has not scored or set up a goal in his last 11 matches in all competitions for Leicester. Nevertheless, his creativity and ability over a dead ball will stand him in good stead. No Englishman has more key passes in the Premier League this season (75).
Ross Barkley, Chelsea
Ross Barkley is a striking form at just the right time and is another Southgate most wanted. He made six arrivals in the Euro 2020 qualifiers and had a hand in seven goals, scoring four and setting up three more. England Euro Cup Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
His supports in Bulgaria and Montenegro meant that Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling eight were the only England players who scored more often in qualifying. Barkley has also been excellent for Chelsea recently. He has recorded two goals and set up four more in his last seven national starts.
Jack Grealish, Aston Villa
Jack Grealish offers something different to the rest of the players on this list, but he has still not won an England cap. He has not even been called into a squad before, with Southgate seemingly unsure where the Villa captain would fit into the side. His form has been impressive this season, scoring seven goals and laying on six assists for a team in the relegation zone.
Only Kevin De Bruyne has created more chances from open play in the Premier League. Grealish carries the ball exceptionally well and draws more fouls than you can count in most matches but, given Southgate’s previous reticence, the 24-year-old remains an outside bet.
