Has Grealish done enough?

Grealish has earned plenty of glowing reviews, since being given a proper international chance by Southgate,

On the weekend, he was easily England’s best player as they ground out a 1-0 win over Romania.

It was another impressive display from Grealish.

He has the creativity and drive to potentially open up what is likely to be a stubborn Croatian back line.

Grealish is a quote of 5/4 at Betfair to be in the starting eleven on Sunday* (odds recorded at 23:13 GMT on June 7th, 2021 at Betfair).

From the start or from the bench?

Grealish has to contend with a stacked midfield attacking core, with the likes of Mason Mount and Phil Foden there.

Other attacking options that could get the nod over him include the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling depending on how Southgate sets up his team.

There could be the train of thought from the England boss that Grealish has the ability to come off the bench and change a game.

He has plenty of direct running in him, which could be a fantastic weapon to unleash in the latter stages of a fixture against tiring legs.

Ben White to start?

Brighton’s Ben White has received a late call up to the England squad following the injury to full-back Trent Alexander Arnold.

White remains one of four options for Southgate and he is a 5/4 quote in England Starting Eleven Odds v Croatia.

If that happens it will most likely be at the expense of Kyle Walker.

One interesting place across the backline is who will partner John Stones in the heart of the defence?

There are still injury questions about Harry Maguire. So that could lead to Tyrone Mings getting the nod.

Mings has been trimmed a little to 11/10 to get a starting place against Croatia.

Another option could be the commanding presence of Conor Coady who is 6/4 to start* (odds recorded at 23:13 GMT on June 7th, 2021 at Betfair).

Will Southgate roll the dice on Henderson?

In the middle of the park, Gareth Southgate gave Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson a second-half run out against Romania on the weekend.

The midfielder is still working his way back from injury and has had precious few minutes under his belt.

But will Southgate look to Henderson’s leadership qualities in this high-pressure opener?

Henderson’s odds of making the England starting eleven are at 7/5 for England Starting Eleven Odds v Croatia* (odds recorded at 23:13 GMT on June 7th, 2021 at Betfair).

But there is a lot of competition that he has to deal with as Declan Rice is a 1/20 odds-on favourite to start the game with Kalvin Phillips another serious contender* (odds recorded at 23:13 GMT on June 7th, 2021 at Betfair).
