England take on Die Mannschaft at Wembley in a 5pm kick-off, with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.

We asked our readers to pick the stars who will line up alongside shoo-ins Raheem Sterling, Declan Rice and Jordan Pickford.

John Stones and Harry Maguire were your picks in the centre of defence, taking almost 70 per cent of the vote ahead of Tyrone Mings.

Luke Shaw and Kyle Walker both claimed over half of all votes up against their rivals at full-back.

The Arsenal winger took half of the votes in this position, with his team-mates evenly splitting the remaining ballots.

And with Harry Kane strongly backed over Marcus Rashford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in attack, it meant the same starting XI that faced Czech Republic has been backed again by the England faithful.

Southgate will reveal his hand just before 4pm with late calls likely to be made on Mount and Chilwell following their coronavirus self-isolation
