Harry Maguire looks likely to be part of a back-three

England’s two strikers for the game in Volgograd are expected to be the captain Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.

Sky sources understand Marcus Rashford, who returned to training on Friday following a knee injury, will not start.

Kieran Trippier is expected to start at right-wingback, as Southgate persists with his favoured 3-5-2 formation, with Kyle Walker lining up on the right of the back-three.

John Stones is likely to start in the centre of the back-three, with Dele Alli occupying one of the three central-midfield berths.

Gary Neville says the World Cup is the ultimate test of a footballer but hopes England’s 3-5-2 formation can help them improve on recent efforts
