England kick off their Euro 2016 campaign against Russia on Saturday. Roy Hodgson's side haven't lost a competitive match since they were knocked out of the World Cup by Uruguay a couple of years ago,and have a team of young exciting players. However, England are England, and it would be surprising if they didn't make hard work of things against a Russia team that have failed to impress of late.

There are three Manchester United players in the England squad, though only Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney have their places in Hodgson's starting lineup nailed down. The other United man involved will be hotshot Marcus Rashford, who made a goalscoring international debut in a pre-tournament friendly against Australia. He's not going to make the 11, though could well be thrown on if things are going very well -- or very badly.
