Highly sought-after Matthijs De Ligt plays in defence.
Starting XI: Cillessen, Dumfries, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind, De Roon, De Jong, Wijnaldum, Bergwijn, Babel, Memphis

Manchester City star Raheem Sterling captains England on the occasion of his 50th cap, with skipper Harry Kane only among the substitutes following his involvement in the Champions League final.
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford leads the line in Kane’s absence.
Manager Gareth Southgate does not name any Spurs or Liverpool players in his starting XI, so Kyle Walker gets the nod over Trent Alexander-Arnold at left-back.
Starting XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Chilwell, Delph, Barkley, Rice, Sterling, Sancho, Rashford
