Wayne Rooney should not start Englands opening game at Euro 2016 against Russia, according to Sky Sports Now guest Paul Ince. Custom Barcelona Jerseys . The Three Lions kick-off their European Championship campaign on June 11 against Group B second-favourites Russia in Marseille.Ince, who played for England at Euro 96, the 1998 World Cup in France and Euro 2000, stressed the importance of avoiding defeat in the opening game of major tournaments. And he has omitted Englands captain - and all-time leading goalscorer - from his XI for the opening fixture at the Stade Veldrome, citing Rooneys recent deployment in an unfavoured position at Manchester United as the reason.Paul Inces England XI v Russia Paul Inces England starting XI v Russia Its important not to open the competition with a defeat, Ince told Sky Sports. People are going to say: do this, play Rooney or play your strongest XI, but when you go into tournament football its important to start with a point or even three.No Rooney... why?INCE SAYS: I havent put Rooney in the first XI for the game against Russia because I dont think he is ready for that yet, he is playing in midfield for Manchester United at the moment. I do, however, think he will come in later - Id like to see Rooney play up front. Ince expects England to play without fear at this summers European Championships in France Who will shoulder the attacking responsibility in Rooneys absence?INCE SAYS: Ive gone with a 4-4-2 formation with Danny Drinkwater and Eric Dier in midfield and Dele Alli in the No 10 role. Offensively, Alli would be the key man as you dont want to isolate Harry Kane.James Milner and Adam Lallana would support Kane but Alli has been outstanding this year for a young kid that has just come in. He has taken the Premier League by storm, he carries himself with confidence and he is a top, top player. Can Spurs starlet Dele Alli transfer his fine club form to the international stage? Its strange that someone like Alli, having come from a League One club, is going to be one of the main men in the England team but thats how good the kid can be. He makes great runs forward and thats why Ive put him in the No 10 role.An overly cautious selection?INCE SAYS: Ive gone with a solid line-up because I feel Englands weaknesses are the two full-backs. Our full-backs like to go forward so much that they leave so many spaces behind. Rooney is playing in midfield for Manchester United at the moment so I don’t think he is ready to start for England. Former England captain Paul Ince By getting Dier and Drinkwater there - along with the pace of Gary Cahill and Chris Smalling - they can cover the gaps. Milner and Lallana will help to keep it tight defensively, because youve got to keep things tight.You can always nick a goal, Kane has been flying this season and Alli will push forward in support.How far can England go in the tournament?INCE SAYS: The group stage is always the nervous part of the tournament. Once you get past the group stage and it comes down to one-off games, England can go and win it all. I see no reason why England cant win it. Englands fixtures in the group stages of Euro 2016 Its going to be tough with the top teams - Germany, Spain, France on home soil - being there, but England have got the quality and a nice balance.If England can get through the group-stages, which I expect them to do, there is no reason why they can reach the semi-finals or better.Do you agree with Inces England XI?
