Defender Kieran Trippier is set to return to England's starting line-up for Sunday's European Championship final against Italy at Wembley, according to British media reports.

Trippier's inclusion will be at the expense of Bukayo Saka, who played as a right winger against Denmark in the semifinal, and Trippier's inclusion a change in formation for England, with manager Gareth Southgate switching to a back three.

Midfielder Phil Foden missed England's final training session and is a doubt for the Sunday's showpiece, Southgate said on Saturday.

England are looking to win their first major trophy since the World Cup in 1996.

England's predicted XI to face Italy: Jordan Pickford, Luke Shaw, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling
