Kieran Trippier recalled as England go with back three for Euro 2020 final

England have recalled former Barnsley loanee Kieran Trippier and switched to a back three for their first European Championship final.

Atletico Madrid defender Trippier, a substitute against Denmark in the semi-final, is the only change to the side, replacing Bukayo Saka.

The move means Mason Mount will play on the right wing for the first time in the tournament, having previously been used as a No 10/third midfielder. Phil Foden, Saka, Jadon Sancho and, later in games, have all played there in this tournament.
