sport news Jamie Redknapp's big match preview: Dele Alli has to play over Jesse Lingard

Gareth Southgate has a big decision to make over whether to play Dele Alli or Jesse Lingard in midfield.

If he wants a super-attacking approach he could of course pick both but I think he will be more conservative.

Lingard seems to raise his game even more when he puts on the England shirt but for me, Alli has to play.

He is the most talented of the two and is a genuine all-rounder.

Alli also has a great understanding with Harry Kane and England should use that partnership to their advantage.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold rested after the Champions League final, this is a great opportunity for Kieran Trippier to stake his claim to start against Tunisia.

What may give Kieran the upper hand is that he has played as a wing-back in this system plenty of times for Tottenham. Gareth may want to go for experience in England's opener.

While Alexander-Arnold will not have done so as often, this kid is born to play in this role.

He is a great athlete and a fantastic footballer. Having just played in a European Cup final, is he going to be fazed by the World Cup? Of course not.

I can see Alexander-Arnold being England's right back for many years to come.

It makes sense that Harry Kane is England's captain. He is our best player, a real leader and is guaranteed to start every game.

It's only a matter of time
