England: Who did you pick in starting XI for Nations League opener?

Pick your England starting XI

England get their Nations League campaign under way against Iceland on Saturday - with a few new faces in Gareth Southgate's squad.

We asked you to pick your side, and there were a few surprise choices. Here it is:

England XI to play Iceland, as picked by you

In goal you went for Manchester United's Dean Henderson to make his debut - though he only pipped Burnley's Nick Pope by a small amount. Jordan Pickford, the most experienced goalkeeper in the squad, got just 9% of your selections.

In defence Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles was chosen at left-back - which seems odd, but then again Gareth Southgate didn't actually pick one in his squad. Maitland-Niles has played on the left wing for the Gunners, and as a wing-back, so got the nod for a debut.

In the centre of defence you went for Joe Gomez of Liverpool and Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings, and nearly 73% of you picked Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back. The Liverpool man was the most picked player of all.

Manchester City's Phil Foden, another debutant, was the most-picked midfielder, with Declan Rice of West Ham and Chelsea's Mason Mount just keeping Jack Grealish out of the side.

The front three was straightforward - Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane were the second, third and fourth-most picked players overall. Mason Greenwood, another potential debutant, was the closest to forcing his way in.
