On Tuesday, England have announced their 26-man squad for the Euro 2020.

Seven players have withdrawn from then initial provisional squad:  James Ward-Prowse, Jesse Lingard, Aaron Ramsdale, Ben Godfrey, Ben White, Ollie Watkins and Mason Greenwood.

Many have doubted Gareth Southgate will pick Trent Alexander-Arnold after not calling him up for the World Cup qualifiers squad, however, the Three Lions boss did call him up this time having four right-backs at his team.

England boss have also hinted that he could use the Liverpool full-back at the midfield.

So with the European Championship on the horizon, here are the strongest ways the Three Lions can line up this summer.

4-3-3 formation

Jordan Pickford will start in between the sticks, with Harry Maguire, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Luke Shaw forming the defence.

In the midfield Declan Rice will team up with Mason Mount and Jordan Henderson, while Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane complete the attack.

4-3-3 formation #2

Pickford will remain as the keeper, while Tyrone Mings might replace Maguire if the Man Utd captain do not recover from injury. Ben Chilwel and Kieran Trippier will be in the wingback.

In midfield Kalvin Phillips will replace Henderson, while Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford will complete the attack alongside the Three Lions captain.

3-4-3 formation

This is a formation that Southgate might try as well and this time the defence will be formed by Maguire, Stones and Walker.

Chilwell and Alexander-Arnold will be in the midfield alongside Mount and Rice. Raheem Sterling would start in the left wing of the attack.

England are included in the Group D alongside Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland. Their first game is scheduled on Sunday, June 13, against Croatia at Wembley.
