England v Sweden at World Cup 2018: Who did you pick in you England team?

The England XI to face Sweden as picked by you: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Lingard, Henderson, Loftus-Cheek, Rose; Kane, Rashford
We asked you to select the team to face Sweden and you have made three changes: In come Rose, Loftus-Cheek and Rashford

The impossible job?

We asked you to become the England manager - temporarily - and pick the side to face Sweden in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final, which is live on BBC One from 14:00 BST.

After the shootout win over Colombia you decided there was no need for wholesale changes, but did make three switches, perhaps with an eye on fitness concerns in the camp.

Tottenham's Danny Rose, who came close to an extra-time winner against Colombia, has been picked to start on the left ahead of Manchester United's Ashley Young, who limped off on Tuesday night.

Also missing out on selection is Dele Alli - with the Tottenham man also struggling for fitness in Russia.

Alli was the 12th most popular selection, but misses out to Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield, meaning that Eric Dier has to settle for a place on the bench despite his historic winning penalty.

And up front Raheem Sterling was only 14th name on the sheet - behind Young - as you went with Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford instead.

Fewer than 250 people took the maverick step of NOT selecting captain and Golden Boot chasing Harry Kane alongside him.

You can still pick your team below, and remember to share your selection on social media with your friends.
