I`d like to say the jury is still out with Southgate but I think he has had enough time to prove himself.
Wasn`t his biggest success in club football to take Middlesbrough down or have I got that wrong?
Yes he did reasonably well in a major tournament last time against some very average teams.
I agree with Jack he has the players in the squad to attack but plays a defensive game far too often.
Me personally I would go with the following for Tuesday.
Pickford
Walker, Stones, Mings, Shaw
Foden, Philipps, Henderson, Mount, Grealish
Calvert Lewin.

I would look to bring on Saka and possibly Kane at some point in the second half.
You still have Maguire and Rice and Sterling if needs be.

Yeah Phillips, Henderson and Mount that should really bring the razzle dazzle football back to Wembley. You will see more forward passes from Rhinos at Salford than with those 3.

Agree. Phillips as holding. With Mount (if available).

Marty you do know teams also have to defend or stop the opposition attacking?
You can`t have 5 attacking midfielders in other words.
As an aside who would you play in that England 5?

Do we really need 2 holding midfielders at home against teams like Scotland and Czechs? We are defending with 6 and attacking with 4. The play is way too slow and Phillips and Rice rarely pass the ball forward.

We are too negative and too defensive in our set up and play. Rice is our best holding midfielder so play him in front of the back 4 bring in Grealish. Mount is obviously out now so i bet we have a midfield of Rice, Phillips and Henderson and none of them will pass the bloody halfway line.

Haha your not wrong with some of your assumptions.
Henderson and Philipps are both capable of playing the ball forward certainly at club level.
But for some reason this doesn`t happen as often as it should.
Not sure if that`s Southgate or just a reluctance to be more expressive.
With Rice, Philipps and Henderson in midfield you are right it`s too defensive hence why I would leave Rice out (Leeds bias I know) and play Henderson and Philipps.
The other 3 would be Foden, Grealish and maybe Saka/Sancho

If he’s bringing Grealish in that midfield I’m not surprised Rice and Phillips are there. Good to see Saka playing, he’s quality but I’m surprised Sancho not in front of him given his exploits in Dortmund, he’s a bit in front of Saka Imo.
