England open their tournament account against Russia in Marseille on Saturday night.
The Three Lions head to France on the back of a perfect qualifying campaign, and are also in good form with victories in their warm-up matches.
Only six teams have qualified for the Euros with a perfect record, including the Three Lions this year. The others are France, the Czech Republic and Spain, Germany in previous years.
Harry Kane is the talk upfront, being the Premier League’s top goalscorer. He scored 25 goals for Spurs last season and will be full of confidence, despite a poor run at the end.
Just 12 months ago Kane was leading the line for England’s Under-21s but his secret is out and he can expect close attention from plenty of defenders this summer.
He’s expected to be given a chance to lead the line in his preferred central role and could be England’s main man for years to come.
Captain Wayne Rooney will be wanting to put a difficult domestic season with Manchester United behind him, the FA Cup triumph making up for it at the end.
These two forwards are expected to start ahead of Daniel Sturridge, a player who’s difficult to build your team around when you don’t know if he will be available. Then Jamie Vardy is tipped to come on as a substitute if England’s chasing the game, or he could simply replace Kane at some point.
Russia got the better of England in qualifying for Euro 2008, finishing second in the group behind Croatia, who won 3-2 at Wembley in their final qualifier to eliminate Steve McClaren’s side.
Russia favour a 4-2-3-1 formation with Dzyuba likely to be named as his side’s lone striker.
The Zenit St Petersburg forward is not the most mobile, so do not expect him to be haring away from England’s defence, but he is an imposing presence.
He knows where the goal is and could punish England if he gets a sniff in the penalty area.
Russia have lost Igor Denisov – their sole holding midfielder – to injury. Artur Yusupov has come in an his replacement.
Roman Shirokov and Aleksandr Kokorin are the other key attacking outlets England will want to keep in check as they look to kick-off their campaign with a win.
