Man United Fans React After Mourinho Picks Chilwell To Start For England Ahead Of Shaw.

The European Championship 2020 will be starting today, with 24 nations set to contest for the trophy.

Meanwhile, ex-Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has picked his preferred starting lineup for England against Croatia in the opening game of 'Group D' coming up on Sunday.

Recalled that Mourinho was sacked by Tottenham towards the end of last season, and he has secured another job with AS Roma.

Meanwhile, during the Portuguese interview with the media lately, he speaks on his preferred England lineup for Sunday by picking Jack Grealish on the left-wing, Mason Mount in the No '10' role, and Phil Foden on the right-wing, with Rice and Philips occupying defensive midfield role.

However, Mourinho on his preferred England left-back to start against Croatia, said he would go with Ben Chilwell, and he wouldn’t give a second thought, because Chilwell is intelligent, covers the space and the diagonals inside very well. Chilwell is also dangerous in attack, good in the air, and good on set-pieces.

Mourinho on why he didn't choose Luke Shaw, said Shaw also had a good season and an evolution in terms of emotion, professionalism. But Chilwell has something more, especially with the ball, the way he thinks which helps me to keep calm under pressure. Jose concluded that he likes Chilwell.

Here are the reactions from Manchester United fans:

Therefore, do you agree with Jose Mourinho's lineup?
