England Predicted Line-Up Vs Italy For 2014 World Cup With Liverpool Youngster Getting Place Ahead Of Manchester United Star

How the Three Lions are expected to start in their opening match.

Check in to England vs Italy

England’s 2014 World Cup campaign starts with a tough opening match in Group D against four-time winners Italy.

There is much anticipation ahead of the game about who Roy Hodgson will pick in his starting XI and here is how CaughtOffside thinks the 66-year-old will lineup his team.

England Joe Hart

GK – Joe Hart

After Ben Foster’s shaky display against Ecuador in the warm-ups there is more confirmation than ever now that this Manchester City goalkeeper is the established No.1.

England Glen Johnson

RB – Glen Johnson

In a season in 2013/14 where Liverpool looked good, Johnson was perhaps one of their weaker players, but starts for the English by virtue of the fact there are no better options.

Leighton Baines England

LB – Leighton Baines

This is a big moment for the Everton left-back as the 29-year-old is now firmly established in the first team and will play his first World Cup with Ashley Cole having been dropped from the squad.
