Pearce names England line-up with Man Utd’s Welbeck up front alone

Stuart Pearce has named his England line-up for tonight’s friendly with Holland at Wembley.

Reports suggest that the Three Lions will go into the clash with a 4-3-2-1 formation with Manchester United young gun Danny Welbeck leading the attacking line by himself.

It is believed that Everton’s Leighton Baines will play at left-back ahead of Chelsea veteran Ashley Cole whilst Manchester City’s Micah Richards will start at right-back with Chris Smalling and Gary Cahill in central defence.

Captain Scott Parker will play in central midfield alongside City’s Gareth Barry with Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard playing an attacking role and Adam Johnson and Ashley Young on the wings.
