Roy Hodgson has confirmed the England starting XI to face Germany in Tuesday night’s friendly at Wembley, writes Sky
Hodgson confirmed the line-up will be: Joe Hart; Kyle Walker, Chris Smalling, Phil Jagielka and Ashley Cole in defence; Steven Gerrard, Tom Cleverley, Adam Lallana and Andros Townsend in midfield with Wayne Rooney behind Daniel Sturridge up front.
Hodgson also confirmed the reason as to why he withdrew Daniel Sturridge from the training session this morning because he intends to give Rickie Lambert more playing time against Germany.
England will be hoping to avoid back-to-back defeats against Germany having lost 2-0 in Fridays friendly against Chile, which saw Alexis Sanchez score both goals.
The England side for tomorrow sees Southampton’s Adam Lallana keep his starting place following his impressive debut from Friday’s loss.
Joe Hart will return to goal following Fraser Forster’s debut on Friday, which didn’t go as well as he would have liked after conceding within the first 10 minutes.
The last time the two international sides met was in the 2010 World Cup, when Germany beat England 4-1 in the quarter-finals.
