Predicted England XI to play Andorra as Gareth Southgate looks to ring in changes by swapping senior stars for kids

ENGLAND take on Andorra on Sunday as they continue their qualification campaign for Qatar 2022.

Gareth Southgate's side made it four wins from four last night, battering Hungary 4-0 as they continued to cruise towards next year's winter finals.

Southgate, 51, will insist that his players don't let up, however, having negotiated last night's hostile environment in Budapest.

Three Lions stars had projectiles thrown at them and vile racist abuse hurled their way.

England boss Southgate, as well as skipper Harry Kane and even PM Boris Johnson called for Fifa to take strong action after last night's events.

Southgate, however, will now have to turn his attention towards Sunday's Wembley clash with Andorra.

The group whipping boys realistically provide very little threat to England – but did pick up an extremely rare 2-0 win against San Marino last night.

Nevertheless, the Three Lions will likely make wholesale changes from yesterday's triumph in Budapest, with next Wednesday's trip to Poland in mind.


Southgate is normally reluctant to change his goalkeeper, so Jordan Pickford can look forward to a night of twiddling his thumbs on the edge of his box.

Manager's favourite Kieran Trippier could come in for Kyle Walker at right-back ahead of Trent-Alexander-Arnold and Reece James, while Tyrone Mings may also get a run out in defence alongside mainstays Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.

England Player of the Year Kalvin Phillips could be rested, alongside his regular partner and pal Declan Rice.

Experienced Jordan Henderson may get a chance alongside Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jude Bellingham.

Bukayo Saka is a prime candidate to play on the wing, while Southgate will likely feel that Jesse Lingard deserves a start – particularly with Jadon Sancho an injury doubt.

Jack Grealish may be handed back to back starts for his country for the first time since last November, with his creativity and ability to beat a man set to be handy against the deep lying Andorrans.

Southgate is normally reticent to leave out skipper and talisman Harry Kane.

But this fixture could present the perfect chance to give Leeds striker Patrick Bamford his first cap – with Kane kept in reserve for Wednesday night in Warsaw.
