Stealing a blueprint:

The England team I think Southgate will play:
(3-4-3): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings; James, Philips, Rice, Chilwell; Sterling, Kane, Mount.
The England team I would play:
(4-1-3-2): Pickford; Walker, Stones, White, Shaw; Rice; Foden, Mount, Grealish; Sterling, Kane.

Only an incompetent fool like him would play 2 fucking holding midfielders despite the wealth of attacking talent at his disposal.

He'll play two holding midfielders because he doesn't trust the defence. That includes Pickford, who is always likely to do something daft. If he gets Maguire back he might be more adventurous.
 
It's hard to say that Jack is better than Foden given what Foden has already acheived at such a young age and the fact he's a massive part of one of the best teams in the world.

Honestly think Jack needs to play at that level before we can make that claim. At the moment Foden edges it for me.
