England and San Marino’s teamsheets are in ahead of their Euro 2016 qualification match at Wembley.
England may well feel that victory against San Marino, the joint lowest ranked team in world football, should be a formality at Wembley this evening, but manager Roy Hodgson has fielded a strong team that is extremely similar to the one that won in Switzerland last month.
The big talking point is the fact that teenage Arsenal right back Calum Chambers is handed a start, replacing the injured John Stones, ahead of Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne who must wait for his international debut, whilst his club teammate Kieran Gibbs also comes into the side to replace Leighton Baines.
Danny Welbeck partners Wayne Rooney in attack, with the Manchester United captain moving closer to the all-time England goalscoring record, with Jordan Henderson, Jack Wilshere and James Milner starting in midfield.
For San Marino, striker Andy Selva is likely to be the biggest threat to the England back line, with the experienced frontman having a solid goalscoring record in the lower leagues in Italy.
