Here are the English openings today, Wednesday 2 June:
The Daily Telegraph
“Southgate chooses a defensive team”
There are four low wards called up by CT Southgate for the England European Championship. But above all ten defenders in the list of 26, with only five midfielders present. Maguire and Henderson remain on the list, struggling with physical problems and difficult to recover for the first day.
“Ancelotti leaves Everton”
Carlo Ancelotti makes his return to Real Madrid and leaves the Everton bench, with whom he had a contract until 2023. An important choice for the Reggiolo coach, who was unable to say no to Real Madrid.
“Southgate admits doubts about Maguire”
Harry Maguire is included in the list of 26 called up by the English coach, but he will hardly be able to take part in the group matches: he could be back in the game for the knockout phase.
Few doubts about the form that England will adopt at the next European Championships. The choices of the coach, with four low right-foot wielders and very few central midfielders, hint at the intention of siding with a compact 4-4-2.
