However, both did start for England in their Uefa Nations League game against Croatia on Friday evening, as Gareth Southgate opted for a new formation, moving away from the 3-5-2 he used in Russian Federation and deploying a 4-3-3.
England's Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund's exciting 18-year old winger, produced a darting run late on after coming off the bench to replace Raheem Sterling and make his global debut before the match fizzled out in the final few minutes.
Croatia had been ordered to play the match behind closed doors after a swastika was marked on the pitch in Split ahead of a EURO 2016 qualifier against Italy.
In front of the empty stands, Marcus Rashford missed two glorious chances to exact England a small measure of revenge for missing out on the World Cup final to Croatia 93 days ago in Moscow.
Gareth Southgate believes that England's tactical switch to earn a goalless draw in Croatia showed his young team continue to make significant progress since reaching the World Cup semi-finals.
"It's hard to overstate just how much of a lift it will give the lads to know that thousands of [fans] aren't behind them", Southgate said.
England had another chance to put in a threatening delivery soon afterwards when Harry Kane was fouled, but Chilwell's pass was too long for John Stones.
England's prowess from set-pieces played a huge role in their World Cup success and again proved a potent weapon.
The Leicester left-back provided a fine cross 12 minutes into his first England start and Sterling would have tucked it away was it not for Josip Pivaric's intervention.
Henderson's own yellow card in the sixth minute rules him out of Monday's trip to Seville, where England will face another top-level midfield.
Pickford parried Perisic's low drive to safety up the other end in a more entertaining second half in Rijeka, and Rebic had Pickford a little anxious with his well-hit shot that ended inches wide.
Ross Barkley went down in the area as Rebic challenged but the referee waved play on, and Walker then found Rashford but, with just the keeper to beat, the forward scuffed his finish.
Kane saw an effort ruled out for offside and seemingly broke the net in the process, leading to a pause in play that saw England fans get a wave from Pickford.
"And I had no hesitation in throwing Jadon Sancho on late on".
