PHIL FODEN is dropped against Senegal – despite scoring in the win against Wales.
The Manchester City playmaker squeezed his way into the starting XI last Tuesday as England lacked creativity against the USA.
But although he scored the second goal that helped win and top spot in Group B, it’s not enough to keep him in the team.
However, Marcus Rashford, Jordan Henderson and Kyle Walker are all on course to retain their spots after also impressing.
Rashford scored twice to level in the Golden Boot race.
He is expected to start play on the right wing where he has been so effective so far at the World Cup.
And Raheem Sterling could be recalled at left – although other reports suggest Bukayo Saka could get the nod.
Declan Rice and Henderson will provide the solid double spin in midfield, with Jude Bellingham getting a free role right up front.
The chain of five also remains unchanged.
This leaves Jordan Pickford in goal with Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP
Ben White returned home this week for personal reasons and is unlikely to return to Qatar.
James Maddison, Conor Gallagher and Conor Coady are the only other outfield players for the Three Lions who have yet to see a minute of the game.
England’s clash with Senegal starts at 7pm and is available live on ITV1 – France or Poland await in the quarter-finals.
