Rob Holding starred for Arsenal over the latter part of the season and is perhaps unfortunate not to get a start.
Former Arsenal target Jordan Pickford starts in goal for the Young Lions.
England will be hoping to get off to a winning start and set themselves up for the rest of the tournament. They have failed to progress from the group stage in any of the previous three tournaments.
It is not the strongest squad that England could have picked with the likes of Marcus Rashford being kept with the senior squad but it is still a team packed with talent.
Ex-Arsenal player Kristoffer Olsson starts for the Swedes.
