HYS: Who should start up front for England vs the Netherlands?

England face the Netherlands in a friendly on Friday night that will give Gareth Southgate some idea of what his starting XI will look like when the World Cup in Russia comes around.

Unfortunately though, the Three Lions are without their only truly world-class player – formidable frontman Harry Kane, who hobbled off with an ankle injury against Bournemouth during his last Premier League outing.

That does, however allow Southgate to test some contingency plans in the event of Kane unfortunately not making the the international tournament this summer, with three alternatives to choose from.

Arsenal attacker Danny Welbeck boasts the best scoring record for England, with 15 goals and 36 caps, but Jamie Vardy has scored the most Premier League goals this season of any centre-forward in the squad, netting 14 times in total.

Then there’s Manchester United’s boy wonder Marcus Rashford, who Transfermarkt value at £45million. He’s dipped in and out of Jose Mourinho’s starting XI this season but remains one of England’s most exciting and potent attacking threats.

So, England fans, who would you choose to lead the line against Oranje on Friday? Let us know by voting below…
