Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling are expected to start for England against Croatia in Sunday’s Euro 2020 Group D opener, Sky Sports News has learnt.

The Manchester City pair will partner captain Harry Kane in attack as England seek a winning start at Wembley.

Neither Foden or Sterling featured for England in their warm-up wins over Romania and Austria but they did start alongside Kane in England’s last competitive fixture, the 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Poland in March.

England have never won their opening match at a European Championship and suffered an extra-time defeat against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.
