England's Euro 2021 Starting XI

With Euro 2020 postponed. England have an extra year to prepare. Which players make the first team?

England/UEFA

People all over England had a tear in their eye when the news hit that Euro 2020 was postponed. Another summer without international football and another summer without football coming home.

The extra year of preparation is probably a blessing in disguise for the Three Lions, as it allows players who aren't quite ready to get more game time and experience.

The 2018 World Cup brought joy to England fans for the first time in years (however short-lived). There is hope that the first major tournament to take place throughout the whole of Europe will bring back the good times. As long as the pubs have re-opened by then, that is.

This team will use the always safe 4-3-3 system with a holding midfielder in the centre. However, a lot can change in a year so it's entirely possible that England switch back to a 5-3-2. Or maybe even 4-4-2 (that worked for Sven and Capello).

The starting 11 is a headache for many an England fan but, there is no need to worry as this predicted team is guaranteed to bring football home... Possibly.
