England coach Fabio Capello has confirmed that Mathew Upson will replace the suspended Jamie Carragher at centre-back. Capello, who says he will probably “change some others”, must also decide whether to persist with Emile Heskey up front.
Capello could switch to a five-man midfield, with Joe Cole touted by many as the man to bring creative spark to the Three Lions.
Michael Carrick should be fit enough to claim a place on the bench despite hurting his ankle on Sunday, but Ledley King remains sidelined by a groin problem.
Slovenia centre-back Marko Suler is a doubt after suffering a rib injury against the USA. If he fails to recover in time he will be replaced by Matej Mavric. Striker Necj Pecnik has been ruled out of the World Cup after breaking his ankle against the USA.

Its all to play for as England face a must win encounter against group topping Slovenia in Port Elizabeth. Fabio Capello’s side have been woeful in their first two matches and need to pick up all three points against a Slovenian side who let a two goal lead slip against the United States.

Capello has a number of tactical decisions to make before battle and he must decide if he will give Joe Cole, so often a player who excels in an England shirt, a run out in a five man midfield or whether the Italian opts to continue with a two up front formation that hasn’t really borne fruit thus far.
