England’s loss against Croatia in the World Cup semi-final means that they’ll need to wait another four years before they can have another crack at becoming world champions and the road to glory will begin this weekend as Gareth Southgate’s men meet up for the first time since the third-placed playoff defeat to Belgium in Russia.

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be the first time that tournament will not be held in May, June, or July with it scheduled for late November until mid-December.

England will be hoping to end what will then be a 56-year wait for a World Cup, but which players will be representing the Three Lions at the tournament?

We’ve predicted the line-up that will take to the field for England in their 2022 World Cup opener. We’ve stuck with the 3-5-2 formation that Southgate seems to favour.
