McManaman given free role
Kevin Keegan has told his squad who will play in Monday night's game with Portugal and Radio 5's Mike Ingham says he knows the line-up after speaking to an unnamed England player.
Although this is yet to be confirmed, Keegan has apparently opted for a basic 4-4-2 formation but the team have been asked to change to 3-5-2 when they have the ball.
By going with this line-up Keegan hopes to get the best out of Steve McManaman who will be given freedom to roam when England attack but will then help contain Luis Figo when Portugal have the ball.
Paul Ince, Paul Scholes and David Beckham complete the midfield with Alan Shearer and Michael Owen playing in front of them.
The centre-backs will be flanked by the Neville brothers with David Seaman behind them in goal.
Expected England team to face Portugal:
David Seaman, Gary Neville, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell, Phil Neville, David Beckham, Paul Ince, Paul Scholes, Steve McManaman, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen.
