England boss Gareth Southgate likely to change players and formation for Ivory Coast clash on Tuesday

The England boss has a wealth of options in wide areas and attacking midfield, including Mason Mount and Phil Foden, who started against Switzerland, and Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling, who appeared from the bench. There is also his Arsenal team-mate Bukayo Saka, who was forced to leave the camp having picked up Covid-19.

Smith Rowe has already usurped the likes of Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in Southgate’s thinking, but if he is to claim a place in England’s World Cup squad at the end of the year, he’ll need to use games like Tuesday’s to press his claim.

The meeting with the Ivory Coast might previously have been an opportunity for Tammy Abraham, the 24-year-old having smashed 23 goals for Roma this season, but his withdrawal from the squad due to injury has left Ollie Watkins as Kane’s only competition.

Watkins will be eager to capitalise on any chance he gets having only featured as an 88th-minute substitute against Switzerland, but Kane is rarely rested and goals are not all he offers Southgate.metasports

“There is never a camp where he looks like he doesn’t want to play,” said the England boss. “That mentality spreads through the rest of the group.”

“He had a huge impact on the game when he came on,” he added. “A really mature performance, strong, breaks the game up so well, but now has more confidence to drive with the ball and bring it forward as well.

“Without a doubt, he has all the attributes to be a captain. There will be others, but we are gaining the rewards of the opportunities we had to blood him so young.”

Rice could soon be joined by Gallagher in England’s midfield, if the on-loan Crystal Palace midfielder’s impressive first start was anything to go by, however Tuesday’s game could bring opportunity for Jude Bellingham and James Ward-Prowse.
