World Cup 2018 Countdown: Do you agree with our England squad?

England produced a pretty impressive performance last night as the Three Lions drew with Germany 0-0.

It was a pretty bright occasion under the arch at Wembley, as a patchwork England team more than held its own against the World Champions.

Of course, it is just a friendly and England are chief at flatterering to deceive but we should take some hope from a team bristling with energy and pace.

A few fringe players did themselves no harm with their performances either, and Gareth Southgate has an interesting time ahead of him as he looks to form his 23-man squad.

We thought we’d try and help him out here at Rush Football, then, and so, if you’re reading Mr. S, this is the squad you want to go for…

3 Goalkeepers

Joe Hart, Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland.

Notable mentions who miss out: Tom Heaton, Fraser Forster

8 Defenders

Phil Jones, John Stones, Harry Maguire, James Tarkowski, Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Ryan Bertrand.
