The Atletico Madrid right-back is going to be recalled to be in The Three Lions’ squad in a five-man defence part for the battle against Italy in the Euro 2020 tonight.



Gareth Southgate

’s only alteration in the starting XI in the Euro 2020 game against Italy from the battle with Denmark will be Bukayo Saka, who had to be omitted due to a tactical switch.

Kieran Trippier

began the European Championship as a left-back but in the battle against Denmark, he was substituted as a right-back.

The England manager has chosen a 4-3-3 system at Euro 220; however, in their Round of 16 clash against Germany, he moved to three at the back.

Saka has pulled off a great performance under the reign of Southgate in the tournament, showing great potential in his three starts, but he has to be benched like Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

Phil Foden may also not make an appearance in their Final since he missed the training on Saturday due to a minor injury in his foot.

Expected England starting XI:

 Pickford, Shaw, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Rice, Phillips, Mount, Kane, Sterling

Expected Italy starting XI: 

Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne.
