England ‘leaked’ line-up v Wales: Former Sunderland star gets Gareth Southgate nod as Arsenal man benched

England will play their third and final World Cup group stage match against Wales this evening (7pm kick-off) - but how will Gareth Southgate’s side line-up?

The Three Lions will be hoping to bounce back from an underwhelming goalless draw against USA on Friday and pick up a win that would guarantee their progress as group winners. Only a seven goal defeat to Wales would guarantee England’s exit.
