England will lock horns with Scotland at Wembley Stadium on Friday night, hoping to pick up a positive result and further strengthen their position in the points table. The Three Lions will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over Croatia, whereas Steve Clarke’s men recorded a 2-0 loss against the Czech Republic in their first game of the Euro 2020.
Gareth Southgate will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Jack Grealish might get the nod over Mason Mount, whereas Jadon Sancho looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven. Here’s The 4th Official’s 4-3-3 England predicted lineup Vs Scotland.
4-3-3 England Predicted Lineup Vs Scotland
Jordan Pickford is expected to start in goal for the upcoming home encounter. The Everton shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Friday.
John Stones will continue to form the centre-half partnership with Tyrone Mings at the heart of England’s backline.
Kyle Walker is a guaranteed starter at the right-back position, whereas Ben Chilwell is expected to replace Kieran Trippier on the other flank as the left-back. The duo would be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.
Luke Shaw will have to settle for a place on the bench but could be brought on in the latter stages of the game if needed.
Kalvin Phillips is expected to start in the central midfield position, whereas Declan Rice will slot in as the defensive midfielder. The former put up a brilliant performance against Croatia on Match Day 1 as he dominated the midfield proceedings and even bagged an assist.
It seemed as if Gareth Southgate’s side had run of ideas after the first 30 minutes against Croatia, so we might get to see Jack Grealish in the attacking midfield position on Friday.
Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, playing on the right and left-wing respectively.
