Don’t be ‘scared’ to attack, Gareth! Jose Mourinho names HIS team for England’s Euros opener and shuns his safety-first nature to tell Southgate to play a back four and unleash ‘Figo-like’ Jack Grealish

Jose Mourinho has gone against his pragmatic instincts and urged Gareth Southgate to be brave and unleash his attacking stars against Croatia in England’s opening Euro 2020 game.

The former Tottenham boss believes Southgate’s men should aim to dominate possession and try to take control of the game against Croatia as he talked up England’s midfield qualities.

Southgate is blessed with a number of options in attacking midfield but Mourinho thinks he should start Phil Foden, Mason Mount and Jack Grealish – who he described as Luis Figo-esque – against Croatia on Sunday as he named his starting XI.


England’s starting XI Mourinho would pick

Goalkeeper: Henderson

Right back: Walker

Centre back: Stones

Centre back: Mings

Left back: Chilwell

Centre midfield: Rice

Centre midfielder: Phillips

Right wing: Foden

Attacking midfielder: Mount 

Left wing: Grealish

Striker: Kane
