England include surprise in starting line-up for Norway

England has named its starting line-up for Wednesday night's international friendly with Norway.

Roy Hodgson's Three Lions host the Norwegians at Wembley and will surprisingly go in with young Everton defender John Stones at right-back.

Manchester City's Joe Hart will remain in goals while Phil Jones and Gary Cahill will play in central defence and Stones' Toffees teammate Leighton Baines on the left.

Arsenal pair Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere will join Liverpool duo Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling in a youthful midfield four while new captain Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge are in attack.

20-year old Stones, who has not started for Everton this season, will be making his full international debut.
