England U21 XI vs Israel: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for U21 Euros

23 June 2023

ee Carsley’s big selection dilemmas come in forward areas as his England U21 side prepare to face Israel in the European Under-21 Championship.

The Young Lions got their tournament off to a winning start with a 2-0 win over the Czech Republic and they now come up against a team in Israel who held Germany to a draw last time out, despite playing half the match with ten men.

Emile Smith Rowe scored England’s second goal late on against the Czech Republic, set up by Cameron Archer after the pair both came off the bench, and the pair are pushing to start on Sunday evening.

Arsenal midfielder Smith Rowe may have to settle for a place among the substitutes again, but Archer could come into the side should Carsley decide to go with an out-and-out striker this time. Either Anthony Gordon or Morgan Gibbs-White would likely drop to the bench.

James Garner looks set to keep his place after impressing in an unfamiliar right-back role, with Max Aarons filling in on the opposite side of defence.

Levi Colwill should partner Taylor Harwood-Bellis again in the middle of the back four, with the pair looking for more of the same after that opening clean sheet.

Predicted England U21 XI: Trafford, Garner, Harwood-Bellis, Colwill, Aarons, Jones, Gomes, Ramsey, Madueke, Gibbs-White, Archer
