Forwards: Harry Kane, Phil Foden, Buyako Saka, Ivan Toney, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish and Callum Wilson
There has been a lot of talk about Marcus Rashford making a late play into the squad but I cannot see anything within his performances this season that warrants his inclusion.
He has been abject for United and wouldn’t make his place ahead of Foden or Grealish on the left.
There’s Saka and Sterling comfortably filling the right position while the two back-up strikers can provide depth for me should Kane continue to experience that so-called Premier League fatigue.
Wilson is in for me as his impact off the bench will be enough should Kane not be firing on all cylinders, while Toney is good enough to score goals against all of our group opponents. Both expert penalty takers too.
I feel for Tammy Abraham for missing out but don’t believe he will add more than what Wilson and Toney can bring to the party. A party with the golden trophy come December 18.
We can all hope, can;t we. Even so, Southgate is likely to raise a few eyebrows and go with the old guard in his tried and tested squad no doubt, with all this speculation proving to be meaningless.
C’mon on England!
