Jordan Henderson will sit on the sidelines against Italy as Kalvin Phillips starts the Euro 2024 qualifier.

Despite having started just two Premier League games since the beginning of last season, Kalvin Phillips is expected to replace Jordan Henderson for England;

follow England's Euro 2024 Qualifier against Italy on Sky Sports' digital platforms starting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday; kick-off is at 7.45 p.m.

Phillips played in the starting lineup during the rematch in Naples seven months prior, a 2-1 victory for England that marked a strong start to their qualification campaign.

Despite playing little for Manchester City, the midfielder's defensive skills has persuaded Gareth Southgate to give him a starting spot once more.

Since joining Man City in the summer of 2022, Phillips has made only two league starts for the club and hasn't started a Premier League game since May.

Henderson's choice to go to Saudi Arabia, where same-sex relationships are prohibited,has been controversial ever since he made the decision in the summer.

The former Liverpool captain has previously spoken out in support of the LGBTQ+ community, and some England supporters booed him when he was replaced in Friday's victory over Australia at Wembley.

Southgate vigorously defended the player he appointed captain at Wembley, declaring that he would "100%" keep picking the midfielder even in the face of persistent jeers from the crowd.
