Gareth Southgate will make 10 changes for England’s clash with Italy at Wembley on Tuesday night, according to reports.

The Three Lions turned their team around to a narrow 1-0 win over Australia on Friday, with Ollie Watkins scoring the only goal of the game.

And The Sun says England will once again reshuffle their ranks for Tuesday’s match with Italy.

Only Jordan Henderson will retain his place in the starting eleven against the Australian team.

The midfielder was widely criticized after leaving Liverpool in the summer to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq.

Henderson, a longtime ally of the LGBTQ+ community, moved to the Middle East, where homosexuality is illegal.

The 33-year-old has shrugged off the criticism that has surrounded him since he was booed during Friday’s win over Australia.

Southgate has also defended the England star after criticizing the reception he received from supporters.

And it looks like Henderson will keep his place alongside the experienced player who is set to play a bigger role in the game.

Harry Maguire is another player who has been mocked by fans in recent times.

But despite struggling for Manchester United this season, the defender will reportedly start the match against Italy.

Jordan Pickford, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier will make up the remaining five England players.

In midfield, Henderson is set to partner Declan Rice – with Jude Bellingham then playing ahead of the pair in the 10th position.

Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford are believed to be deployed outside.

And Harry Kane will lead the line, with the striker hoping to continue his excellent start to the season.

The forward left Tottenham for Bayern Munich in August after spending his entire career in north London.

And since then there has been no looking back, with Kane scoring nine goals in his first 10 appearances in Germany.

Speaking last week, the 30-year-old insisted he has no regrets about leaving Tottenham – despite the club enjoying a fantastic start to the season.

“I was there for so long and all my friends are still there, even the coaches and staff, so it’s a little weird sometimes,” he said.

“But in football and in life, when you go on a new adventure, your focus and attention is on that.

“I’m trying to find a home, learn the language, get to know my new team and staff at Bayern Munich.

“You get distracted. It might have felt strange at first to watch them play and not have me there.

“I have to put all my focus on Bayern Munich and make us as successful as possible.

“I’m here, I’m excited and this will always be a decision I will never regret. I’m proud of the way I’ve started.”

And Kane also admitted he was hoping to be involved when England, along with the other Home Nations and the Republic of Ireland, host Euro 2028 in five years’ time.

“Hopefully. My aim is to stay here until then,” said the England captain.

“It’s still a few years away, but I’m a player who at the moment is feeling as good as I’ve ever felt and yes, I’d like to think that my career will last at least until my late thirties. Will go.

“As we know, a lot of things can change quickly in football, but at the moment I feel really good.

“If you ask me now, of course I hope I’m there and that means I’m still performing at a high level, but you never know. We’ll see.”
