The World Cup is finally under way and all thoughts are now on England's opening match against Iran later today.

But who should Gareth Southgate select for the game in the Khalifa International Stadium?

We asked you to name your XI for the Three Lions' opener - and the results are in.

More than 57% of you backed Jordan Pickford to start in goal, while Ben White is your choice to partner John Stones in the heart of the England defence ahead of Harry Maguire.

Chelsea's Mason Mount was narrowly chosen ahead of James Maddison to play alongside Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham in midfield.

Skipper Harry Kane was your overwhelming choice to lead the line, with Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden backed to start alongside the Tottenham striker ahead of the likes of Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford.

You can still pick your England team below.
