CONFIRMED England line-up v Peru: Liverpool, Chelsea & United stars feature

The reported line-up for England's international friendly match against Peru at Wembley Stadium includes Southampton and Everton players.

Roy Hodgson and the England national football team continue their FIFA World Cup tournament preparations with an international friendly against Peru at Wembley Stadium later this evening, Friday, and the management have fielded a strong line-up - one that could feature in Brazil, next month.

There are no surprises at centre back, with primary duo Gary Cahill - who enjoyed a strong season next to Chelsea partner John Terry at club level - and Everton defender Phil Jagielka - frustrated due to the media's attention of Terry's absence from international football - both given the opportunity to form an on-pitch understanding.

Flanking Cahill and Jagielka is Leighton Baines on the left and Glen Johnson on the right, with all four looking to protect Joe Hart in goal.

Captain Steven Gerrard partners fellow Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson, with Southampton star Adam Lallana just ahead, likely on the right of the three in a 4-2-3-1 set-up, completed by Manchester United's tenacious forward Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck.

Daniel Sturridge, who completed his most prolific season to date with Liverpool having netted 21 goals and assisted seven times from 26 starts, spearheads the team.

A strong performance from any individual here would help convince Hodgson who is ready to start the first World Cup group match against Italy, with Raheem Sterling, Jack Wilshere, Ross Barkley and imminent Liverpool signing Rickie Lambert hoping to make an impact from the bench.

England line-up: Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Gerrard, Henderson; Lallana, Rooney, Welbeck; Sturridge.

Subs: Wilshere, Lampard, Smalling, Foster, Milner, Lambert, Sterling, Barkley, Forster, Stones, Flanagan.
