    Now each of his players know exactly what shirt they will be wearing in the Middle East.

    And Manchester United stars Marcus Rashford could be set for a key role under Southgate after they were both given numbers in the opening XI.

    The forward has returned to form this term and saw him win a place in England’s World Cup squad, despite not having played for his country since the Euro final nearly 18 months ago.

    Now he will be hoping to continue his club form on the international stage after being given the No.11 jersey.

    His United team-mate Maguire has come under huge scrutiny over recent months.

    But that has not stopped Southgate from giving him the number six.

    Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford looks set to continue as first-choice after landing the No.1 shirt, while Kyle Walker and Luke Shaw two and three.

    Midfielders Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson are at No.4 and No.8 while centre-back John Stones has the five shirt.
