Gareth Southgate has named his England starting eleven for tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Poland and it includes two Manchester United players.
Harry Maguire will be leading from the back with Luke Shaw operating in his very own left-back slot.
Southgate has completely changed his team from Sunday’s 4-0 win over Andorra, when Jesse Lingard stole the show after bagging two goals and an assist, but the United midfielder has been named as a substitute. All despite transfer speculation beginning to gather after a reported contract refusal.
England are much stronger tonight, with the additional bonus of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount being among the players who return to the side.

The Three Lions can take a major step towards qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with victory in Warsaw – but it might not be easy with Robert Lewandowski lurking around Poland’s attack.
You can’t ignore the Bayern Munich striker’s sheer genius.
