Here’s the side we’re pretty sure Roy Hodgson will select for England to start against Italy on Saturday evening, with Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain unlikely to play due to injury problems.

GK) Joe Hart

Without question, barring a late injury, Hart will start between the sticks looking to thwart Mario Balotelli and co.

DR) Glen Johnson

Often criticised for neglecting his defensive duties, Johnson will struggle to provide a consistently attacking threat up the right flank because of the weather conditions – meaning he may have to tame his instincts.

DC) Phil Jagielka

Jagielka should start alongside Cahill in central defence, with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling providing backup options from the bench.
