Joe Gomez is poised for his first England start against Brazil on Tuesday night following his impressive international debut on Friday.

The Liverpool star is set to take his place in Gareth Southgate's three-man defence with Gary Cahill, who has been struggling with a back problem, ready to miss out yet again.

The defender was introduced as an early substitute in the goalless draw against Germany last week, replacing the injured Phil Jones to play a key role in England's credible goalless draw against the world champions.
