England take on Denmark in the semi-finals of Euro 2020 on Wednesday evening with a chance to book a place in the final against Italy at Wembley on Sunday evening.
The fixture comes after solid knockout victories over both Germany and then Ukraine, but Gareth Southgate is set to change his team from Saturday's 4-0 victory.
During that fixture, Jadon Sancho came in for Bukayo Saka following a minor injury the Arsenal youngster suffered in the round of 16, but he is now set to return.
The teenager looks set to play out-wide in a trio that includes prolific skipper Harry Kane and player of the tournament favourite Raheem Sterling, with an unchanged core of players.
The Sun report that the Three Lions are expected to make their only change in bringing Saka in for Sancho, with Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips once again starting in the middle with Mason Mount.
They will have the job of shielding a defence that includes the usual duo of Harry Maguire and John Stones, with Kyle Walker at right-back and Luke Shaw on the left.
There are also no surprises in goal, with Jordan Pickford looking to extend his lead of clean sheets in the tournament, having already secured the Golden Glove award with five.
Having avoided yellow cards which would've led to a suspension in this fixture, they have now been wiped ahead of the final with only a red card ruling stars out of the final on Sunday.

Southgate insisted before the encounter that his team were feeling calm following their run of unbeaten form, but aware of the dangers that Denmark possess.
He said: "The prize is one that we've never experienced.
"Denmark, of course, have won it so they've got a better record than us and I think people forget that in our country sometimes.
"We don't have as good a footballing history as we like to believe sometimes.
"It's a motivating thing, a challenge for us. If we were a country that had won five titles and had to match what had gone before, we might feel differently. But we're not.
"We're playing a really good opponent, we knew that before the autumn, and even more so after the games in the autumn. It'll be a really tight game, an exciting game for everybody."
