England v Croatia - UEFA Euro 2020: Group D Photo by Eddie Keogh - The FA/The FA via Getty Images

England begin their Euro 2020 campaign with a rematch of the 2018 World Cup third place game semifinal against Croatia, who may not be one of the consensus favorites for this tournament, but they still shouldn’t be underestimated.

England have the home field advantage, but will it be coming home? That question won’t be answered completely today, but a good performance is surely needed to start things off right.

Mason Mount starts. Reece James does not. Chilwell doesn’t even make the bench. (Trippier at left back??) Kovačić starts for Croatia.

Here we go!

Pickford | Trippier, Mings, Stones, Walker | Rice, Phillips | Foden, Mount, Sterling | Kane (c)
