Harry Kane may have accidentally revealed who he will play alongside in England’s starting XI for the Euro 2020 last 16 game with Germany on Tuesday.
Gareth Southgate is yet to pick the same XI in two games during his side’s opening three games at the Euros, and there’s plenty of guesswork going into who he’ll pick for the first knockout round.
It has been claimed that both Phil Foden and Mason Mount will be recalled to the starting XI, having missed out against Czech Republic, with Jack Grealish and Bukayo Saka set to be the players to miss out.
However some fans believe that Grealish will play, and it’s all because of Kane. The England striker, who is yet to score this tournament, posted a video of himself doing a training drill.
The only other players who were doing the drill were Grealish, Foden and Raheem Sterling, making people believe this is going to be the front four against Joachim Low’s team.

That was my exact thinking, good to see @HKane doing this in practice, makes it easier to do in a game as long as he gets the support!

Unfortunately for the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner, who also won the same prize in last season’s Premier League campaign, most of the comments are about his lack of goals in the Euros so far.
He was integral to both England’s goals so far though, his run against Croatia opened space for Sterling and his pass to Grealish was instrumental in setting up the Manchester City winger for the winner against Czech.
Wayne Rooney actually believes the Aston Villa number 10, who is reportedly wanted by City, shouldn’t start against Germany.
Whatever team Southgates starts on Tuesday, you can guarantee someone is going to complain!
