Belgium v England: Nations League – live!

Jack Grealish starts a competitive international for the first time, and has the chance to reinforce the feeling that England have stumbled upon a top, top playmaker. Mason Mount is also included, which means Jadon Sancho is only on the bench.

Grealish’s inclusion is one of six changes from the Nations League defeat to Denmark last month: Dier, Mings, Trippier, Chilwell and Henderson also return, with Coady, Maguire, James, Phillips, Maitland-Niles and Rashford missing out. Most of that six are injured or suspended, though Maitland-Niles is among the subs.

Belgium (3-4-2-1) Courtois; Alderweireld, Denayer, Vertonghen; Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, T Hazard; De Bruyne, Mertens; Lukaku.
Substitutes: Mignolet, Casteels, Mechele, Lukebakio, Foket, Vanaken, Verschaeren, Praet, Benteke, Delcroix, Chadli, Batshuayi.

England (3-4-2-1) Pickford; Walker, Dier, Mings; Trippier, Rice, Henderson, Chilwell; Mount, Grealish; Kane.
Substitutes: Pope, Henderson, Keane, Sancho, Winks, Maitland-Niles, Calvert-Lewin, Foden, Saka, Abraham, Bellingham.

Referee Danny Makkelie (Netherlands).
