England 'leaked' XI v Belgium as Gareth Southgate faces calls on ex-Hull City, Barnsley and Sheffield United men

England are set to return to action tonight (March 26) with a friendly against Belgium.

The game will give Gareth Southgate another opportunity to run the rule over his players, who are all vying for a seat on the plane to Euro 2024. Whenever a major tournament is looming, the competition for places in the England camp tends to heat up.

The likes of Ezri Konsa, Kobbie Mainoo and Anthony Gordon are staking late claims for spots in the squad, while mainstays such as Jordan Henderson and Marcus Rashford are arguably competing to prove they deserve to stick around.

Last week’s 1-0 defeat to Brazil was not a particularly encouraging result, nor was the display eye-catching. However, only so much can be read into friendly results.

Belgium are the next opponents for England and the game could potentially give Southgate a fresh opportunity to experiment. With Henderson, Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire, Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane and Sam Johnstone all out injured, a shuffling of the pack is anticipated.

Here is a possible starting XI for England, based on various media reports and predictions.
