England boss Roy Hodgson has named his starting eleven for Friday night’s World Cup qualifier with Moldova.

The Three Lions host the Moldovans at Wembley in Group H action and will go in with a 4-3-3 formation as they look to move to the top of the standings provided first-placed Montenegro does not win in Poland.

Hodgson is without Daniel Sturridge, Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones, Glen Johnson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but Jack Wilshere is fit after falling ill whilst Rickie Lambert will gain his first international start after scoring on debut in a friendly against Scotland last month.
