And his headache wasn’t helped by Bukayo Saka’s excellent performance against Czech Republic as well as Jack Grealish’s impact.

But there are other decisions England boss Southgate has to make as well all over the pitch.

SunSport wants YOU to choose the Three Lions’ best starting XI to take down Germany and secure a quarter-final berth.


Who will Gareth Southgate play at centre-back?

Harry Maguire is ready to go again after injury hampered the start of his tournament.

Tyrone Mings stepped in for the Man Utd defender alongside John Stones to start the campaign.

Now Southgate has to try and find the right combination at the heard of defence to keep the Germans at bay.


Full-back is another area where the England boss faces some hard decisions.

Kieran Trippier faces competition from Man City’s Kyle Walker and Chelsea full-back Reece James at right-back.

But the Atletico Madrid defender could cover at left-back too, where Ben Chilwell and Luke Shaw are also in the mix.


Kalvin Phillips has been a revelation in central midfield since making his England debut nine months ago.

The Leeds midfielder started alongside Declan Rice in all three group games in this campaign.

But he’s acknowledged he faces a battle with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson to keep hold of his place.

And Jude Bellingham is another option to partner Rice in midfield given the Dortmund star’s Bundesliga knowledge.


Will Jack Grealish retain his place in the starting line-up?

The Aston Villa star played just behind the striker against Czech Republic on Tuesday night with Mason Mount out.

Chelsea midfielder Mount was the man in possession of the spot against Croatia and Scotland – but was forced into isolation.

Will he get his spot back?


Raheem Sterling has scored both England goals in the tournament so far and set to start out side on Tuesday.

But who will partner him on the opposite flank?

Phil Foden started against Croatia and Scotland, but Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka was man of the match on Tuesday against Czech Republic.

And don’t forget about Jadon Sancho either, because Germany are well aware of the Dortmund star’s talents.


Harry Kane is England’s main man but has yet to find his form at this tournament.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin would provide a like-for-like replacement with Kane struggling up front.

But Marcus Rashford is also an option to lead the line if Spurs striker Kane doesn’t start.
