A supercomputer has predicted England’s 23-man squad for Euro 2021 – with Tammy Abraham, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Winks three of the biggest names expected to miss out.
Gareth Southgate has a number of selection dilemmas on his hands ahead of next summer’s tournament, which is taking place a year later than anticipated due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Three Lions boss is blessed with options all over the pitch, meaning he will have some difficult decisions to make by the time his final squad selection comes around.
So which players will make the cut?
BonusCodeBets have created a supercomputer which uses odds to determine the three goalkeepers, eight defenders, seven midfielders and five forwards that will be included in England’s Euro 2021 squad.
As of right now, Jordan Pickford is expected to remain the Three Lions’ No.1 goalkeeper, while Nick Pope and Dean Henderson are predicted to beat Aaron Ramsdale and Tom Heaton to the two other slots.
Despite his shaky form of late, Harry Maguire is likely to earn a place in Southgate’s squad next summer, although there is no room for Manchester United team-mate Wan Bissaka.
Chelsea right-back Reece James, who is enjoying a terrific start to the season at Stamford Bridge, is also projected to miss out.
In midfield, youngsters Phil Foden and Kalvin Phillips are expected to pip Winks and James Ward-Prowse to a place in the squad.
In-form Aston Villa star Jack Grealish also features in the seven-man midfield, as does Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
There are not too many surprise in attack, although Everton frontman Dominic Calvert-Lewin is tipped to sneak in ahead of Abraham, Mason Greenwood and Danny Ings.
