The four year wait is almost over, with England now just days away from their World Cup opener against Tunisia. The Three Lions will be pleased with the draw that they have, with them looking in a very strong position to secure qualification through into the first knockout round. Back in Brazil 2014 they finished rock bottom of their group and a repeat of that would be an absolute disaster.
Gareth Southgate has selected a squad that is virtually un-recognisable from the one that flopped in South America, with it one of the youngest on display at this summers finals. That brings up several unanswered questions, with many of them revolving around who will start on match day one. Southgate has remained tight-lipped - publicly at least - over who will feature against Tunisia and it's going to be interesting to see who makes the cut.
But we on the other hand have already selected who we believe should be representing the Three Lions in Volgograd on Monday. There's some tough calls to be made in several areas but we've managed to pick an XI which we think would comfortably come out on top against the side ranked 21st in the FIFA World Rankings - so read below and tweet your thoughts to us @FootyAccums on who you think should start!
