England boss Gareth Southgate has handed international debuts to Conor Coady and Kalvin Phillips. The Wolves defender and Leeds midfielder come in for James Ward-Prowse and Phil Foden. Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces the suspended Kyle Walker at right-back.
England are looking to make it back-to-back wins after Saturday’s 1-0 success against Iceland.
The Three Lions’ build up to the UEFA Nations League clash has been hampered by Foden and Mason Greenwood breaking COVID-19 protocols at the team hotel.
They were banished from the squad and sent home to England in shame while the rest of the squad travelled to Copenhagen.
Southgate branded the pair “naive” while Manchester City and Manchester United issued statements.
It looks like Southgate has reacted to his reduced options by switching to a three-at-the-back system for tonight’s clash.
England: Pickford; Coady, Gomez, Dier; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Rice, Trippier; Sterling, Sancho; Kane
Subs: Pope, Henderson, Mings, Keane, Maitland-Niles, Ward-Prowse, Grealish, Mount, Abraham, Ings
