England hero Gary Neville may have perfectly predicted Gareth Southgate 's starting XI vs Ukraine at Euro 2020 tonight.

The former Manchester United defender took to Twitter to have a stab at the potential teamsheet in Rome on Saturday evening.

And Neville first opted for a back four, rather than the back five seen in the Germany win.

He also dropped Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka for the returning Phil Foden, despite the former impressing in his last two starts at the tournament.

Mason Mount was also brought back into the fold by Neville after his spell of self-isolation, which also looks to be accurate.

The Telegraph revealed on Friday that Southgate was in fact set to revert to a back-four for the Ukraine outing.

And rumours have been circulating that Mount will return after missing the last two games.

Saka could miss out which may leave fans perplexed given his recent form.

Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling with both lead the line again – while Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips both starting in midfield.

Neville has been vocal with his praise for England's Euros heroes so far.

And earlier this week the ex-defender spoke highly of a player he has doubted in the past.

Neville tweeted: "My MOM last night was Jordan Pickford and I also think he's been England's player of the tournament so far.

"I've been critical of him with Everton but with England he's a different player!"

In 2020, Pickford took aim at Neville, saying: "It's funny because everyone raves about you when you are with England, but when you go back to your club everyone wants to slate you.

"It does p*** you off. The press, the punters, everybody – look at Gary Neville – they just want to come for England players. Everyone gets stick.

"That's part of being an England player. You have got to live with it, you have got to learn."
