Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad includes plenty of new faces with a number of key regulars missing the international break through injury, but one department that has largely stayed in tact – barring the unless-in-extremis-retirement of Jamie Vardy – is the forward line.
Indeed, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck are all available for the coming clashes against Croatia and Spain. So with captain Harry Kane nailed on to start, we asked fans earlier this week to vote for who should lead the line alongside him when the Three Lions travel to the Balkans on Friday night.
And our poll has revealed that the Manchester United youngster is by far the most popular choice to partner the Tottenham striker – who Transfermarkt value at £135million – with a huge 83% voting in Rashford’s favour.
Sterling was left with just 13% of the vote, despite starting regularly for England at the World Cup, while Arsenal’s Welbeck took a mere 4%.
So, England fans, how would you line up Southgate’s side against Croatia? Let us know by commenting below…
