HYS: Should Alli or Loftus-Cheek start for England against Belgium?

Of course, it was only Panama but England produced a performance that their fans will remember for a long, long time by smashing in six goals for the first time in a World Cup match on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate’s side played better against Tunisia in their opening game but were more clinical in the 6-1 thumping, secured by a Harry Kane hat-trick, a John Stones brace and the goal of the game from Jesse Lingard.

The only change from England’s first Group G match to their second saw Dele Alli, valued at £90m by Transfermarkt, drop out due to injury and replaced by Chelsea starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield.

Loftus-Cheek did not put in eye-catching display but he was steady and did what he needed to do as others seized centre stage around him, yet there is a growing argument that Alli needs the gametime ahead of the knockout stages.

With both teams already into the knockout rounds, there is the prospect for wholesale changes on either side but we’re asking you which man should get the nod to start in the England engine room?
