CONFIRMED: England line-up against Slovenia

Wembley England

Here is how England will line up for their match this afternoon, featuring players from Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Southampton.

England starting XI: Hart, Clyne, Cahill, Jagielka, Gibbs, Wilshere, Lallana, Henderson, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck

England subs: Foster, Smalling, Chambers, Barkley, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlin, Milner, Downing, Berahino, Lambert, Forster

England take on Slovenia at Wembley in their latest Euro 2016 qualifying match.

Roy Hodgson’s side are currently top of group E with a 100 per cent record after three matches, but today’s opponents are hot on their heels with six points of their own, and the Three Lions will not be taking them lightly.

Leighton Baines was ruled out of the match on Friday after picking up a hamstring injury, leaving Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs unchallenged for the left-back role.  Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne makes his first start for his country while Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney and Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck lead the line.

Liverpool have three players involved in the form of Raheem Sterling, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson.

This match is swiftly followed by a friendly match that is anything but, as England head to Scotland for Tuesday’s encounter at Celtic Park. But for now all focus is on getting three more points and taking another step closer to the finals.
