Goal Scorer:

Southgate largely managed to avoid scathing criticism of his squad selection for the Euros – at least compared to previous international windows – but the 53-year-old’s decision to call up an injured Luke Shaw, who is still training individually, has well and truly backfired.

The Manchester United man is still classed as a major doubt for Tuesday’s contest but should be the only enforced absentee for the Three Lions, whose fans are urging Southgate to tinker with his XI, pleas which should not fall on deaf ears this time around.

The Trent Alexander-Arnold midfield experiment has not gone as planned, so Conor Gallagher – one booking away from a ban – could be reintroduced to the XI, or Jude Bellingham could drop into a deeper role alongside Declan Rice, allowing Phil Foden to operate centrally and either Anthony Gordon or Eberechi Eze to strut their stuff on the left.
England possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Bellingham, Rice; Saka, Foden, Gordon; Kane

As for the Slovenians, Kek was handed a slight scare over the fitness of star attacker Benjamin Sesko – who failed to complete the full 90 against Serbia due to muscle cramps – but he has been training normally in recent days and should be fine to spearhead the charge.

However, revered goalkeeper Jan Oblak missed training on Saturday for unexplained reasons, while midfield duo Timi Max Elsnik and Adam Gnezda Cerin have also not been 100% operational since matchday two, leaving their participations slightly up in the air.

It would be a shock not to see Oblak – who made some pivotal stops against Serbia – guarding the posts, though, while Jon Gorenc Stankovic is an alternative in midfield if neither Elsnik nor Cerin are given the green light to start.
Slovenia possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Karnicnik, Brekalo, Bijol, Janza; Mlakar, Elsnik, Cerin, Stojanovic; Sporar, Sesko
Prediction: England 1-0 Slovenia
