England's 'leaked' starting XI v Brazil as calls made on Newcastle United, Arsenal & Aston Villa stars

England's 'leaked' starting XI against Brazil as Newcastle United star Anthony Gordon eyes debut.

Newcastle United star Anthony Gordon is eyeing his England debut when Brazil visit Wembley in an international friendly tonight (kick-off 7pm).

After netting 10 goals and providing seven assists for Newcastle this campaign, Gordon was rewarded with a maiden call-up to Gareth Southgate's squad last week. He could come up against Magpies teammates Bruno Guimaraes, who paid tribute to the former Everton winger during his pre-match press conference at Arsenal's training ground.

Guimaraes said: “He has been amazing.  He’s so quick and when we get the ball to him we know he will do something special.  No one at the club deserves to be in the England squad more than him, he has been unbelievable for us, always scoring and giving some assists. 

"He deserves to be there and he's a lovely guy as well so I'm very happy for him.  I hope he can get some minutes in the England squad and for me, playing against him will be massive for us both and the club as well."

With Bukayo Saka forced to withdraw from the squad because of injury and Chelsea's Cole Palmer not fit enough to play, Gordon is in contention to start at Wembley.

And with several other players in contention to feature this evening, we take a look at how England are expected to line-up - based on the latest reports:
