Gareth Southgate is considering bringing in Bukayo Saka as the only change to his England team that thrashed Ukraine in the last round.

The Independent report that England are set to go with a back four again on Wednesday night, as they face Denmark in the European Championship semi-final.

Gareth Southgate is only likely to make one change to his side, considering bringing in Bukayo Saka for Jadon Sancho. Saka missed the last round with a knock.

Southgate previously confirmed that the injury setback for the Arsenal man was nothing serious. Saka had even declared himself fit for the Ukraine game, but the England staff decided to err on the side of caution on that occasion.

This time around, Southgate says Saka should be fine to feature, so it’s just a question of picking the best player for the game.

So far we’ve seen Phil Foden, Saka, and Sancho all get a shot at the right-wing position in Southgate’s side. I’d argue that Saka had the biggest positive impact in his matches, but then of course I would, I’m an Arsenal fan.

The suggestion is that Southgate is leaning the same way, but we won’t get a definitive answer until Wednesday evening.
