England boss Roy Hodgson has revealed the starting line-up that will face arch rivals Germany in an international friendly at Wembley.
An experimental Three Lions side succumbed to a 2-0 defeat to Chile, and the experienced manager was always going to ring changes for the high-profile match against die Mannschaft.
And while it is no surprise to see Wayne Rooney keep his place in the squad, Adam Lallana seems to have impressed Hodgson as he is handed his second England start.
With the Southampton captain proving his worth on international stage, this may be the perfect time to back Lallana to make England World Cup squad at 5/2.
Tottenham starlet Andros Townsend is just 1/4 to be on the plane to Brazil after impressing at the start of his career in the national team.
Joe Hart is also recalled for the Germany game, as is Daniel Sturridge, who has fully recovered from a hip problem that kept him out of the Chile tie.
England are 19/10 to see off their old rivals, with Joachim Low’s side 7/5 favourites to prove their worth by winning at Wembley.
England team to face Germany: Hart – Walker, Smalling, Jagielka, Cole – Lallana, Gerrard, Cleverley, Townsend – Rooney – Sturridge.
