Kieran Trippier against GermanyTrippier's last start for England was in the 2-0 win against Germany in the last 16

Uefa Euro 2020 final: Italy v England
Date: Sunday, 11 July. Kick-off: 20:00 BST. Venue: Wembley Stadium. Coverage: Live on BBC One and iPlayer from 18:20. Listen to live commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live. Live text commentary, goal clips, report and highlights on the BBC Sport website and app.

Kieran Trippier has been recalled to the starting line-up for England's Euro 2020 final against Italy on Sunday.

The Atletico Madrid full-back replaces Arsenal's Bukayo Saka in the only change from the side that started the semi-final win over Denmark.

It will see England revert to the three-man defence that featured in their 2-0 last-16 win against Germany.

Gareth Southgate's men will become the first England side to lift a European Championship if they win at Wembley.

England have not won a major tournament since the 1966 World Cup triumph.

Midfielder Phil Foden is not in the squad after suffering a minor knock on Friday.

England XI: Jordan Pickford, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane

17:44Not the decision I would have made, but I wouldn’t have picked many of the same teams as Gareth and wouldn’t have got us to the final.

Whatever happens we have had a great tournament, let’s just hope we can jump that final hurdle18313S

This is a proper challenge. We might just need to go for it a bit more.5357More replies (28)downF

17:52I guess we have to have faith in Gareth: he’s got us this far after all.

However, with Spinazzola’s injury I don’t really see the need for 5 defenders and 2 DMs.629Removed commentMore replies (3)downJ

17:58Please NO Mr. Southgate. Be bold play Grealish and Sancho and let’s attack the Italians and not sit back with 8 defenders in our own half of the field. I feared this might happen.5217O

17:50Really worried. Trippier is quality but I think we’re conceding the middle of the pitch. Rice and Phillips can cancel out Barrella and Verratti but I would want Mount to try and squash Jorginho rather than take up Saka’s position. Was hoping Saka v Emerson could be a positive area for us too. Can still win this but nervous with this tweak3811R

18:31Sorry to say this but Southgate is anti football, too defensive minded, England should be making the Italians worry about them , not the opposite. They must be picking their lips, can only be one outcome🇮🇹😁183More commentsBack to topunknown
