Gary Neville picks his England Euro 2020 side to face Denmark in the semi-finals with Saka back in… but no GrealishJuly 4, 2021
GARY NEVILLE has picked his England XI for the Euro 2020 semi-final clash with Denmark – with Jack Grealish yet again missing out.
The Three Lions demolished Ukraine 4-0 in their quarter-final clash in Rome with Jadon Sancho given his first start of the tournament.
The new Manchester United star, 21, looked lively throughout the game and gave England a new dimension in attack – despite being given a bizarrely low 4/10 match rating by L'Equipe.
Fans have been crying out for Gareth Southgate to utilise Grealish more having played just 115 minutes across England's five games.
But Neville reckons the Three Lions boss should turn back to Bukayo Saka over Grealish or Sancho for the semi-final showdown against Denmark.
The Arsenal whiz, 19, starred in wins over Czech Republic and Germany but missed the Ukraine demolition job with a minor knock.
And Neville wants him back on the right-wing for the last-four clash at Wembley on Wednesday night.
After the Ukraine drubbing, one fan asked him on Twitter who he'd pick if he were in charge for the Denmark clash.
Neville simply replied: "Same team but Saka back in."
Southgate has not been afraid to experiment with his tactics at this summer's Euros.

The boss got England's campaign off and running with a 4-3-3 – with Kieran Trippier a surprise selection at left-back.
Southgate played the same formation against Scotland, before switching to a 4-2-3-1 to get the best out of Grealish against Czech Republic.
The Three Lions chief then played a 3-4-3 / 5-2-3 to counter the threat posed by Germany's wing-backs Joshua Kimmich and Robin Gosens in the last 16.
He then unleashed a 4-2-3-1 against Ukraine, with Mount in behind Kane and a right-footed right-winger, rather than the left-footed Saka or Foden.
