England Vs Holland: Liverpool pair Daniel Sturridge and James Milner to take point for Roy Hodgson's side

 Football News 24/7

England take on Holland at Wembley this evening aiming to follow on from their 3-2 triumph in Germany with another win.

Roy Hodgson will make changes to his starting line up from the one that came from two goals behind against the world champions on Saturday as he looks at his entire squad building up to Euro 2016.

Against the Germans, it was the Spurs contingent who stood out, with Deli Ali's man of the match performance, goals from Harry Kane and Eric Dier, whilst Danny Rose's England debut was also impressive.

For the Holland game however, the emphasis will be on players from Liverpool. Hodgson has confirmed that Liverpool pair Daniel Sturridge and James Milner will start tonight's game, with the latter captaining England for the first time, having won 57 caps for his country.

With Kane scoring and Jamie Vardy coming off the bench to equalise, Sturridge will be looking to make his mark in his first England for 18 months after a long injury lay-off.

The only other nailed on starter will be Fraser Forster, who played just over half the game against Germany after Jack Butland was taken off injured.

The Stoke stopper injured his ankle but tried to play on, only to be caught out at his near post by Toni Kroos to give the Germans the lead. He was then substituted and has since confirmed that he will not be available for the Euros.

At the back changes are expected, with Everton's John Stones expected to feature at some stage, whilst Hodgson may also opt to give Ryan Bertrand and Kyle Walker the full back berths.

Ross Barkley is also someone who will look to impress if given a start, especially after Deli Ali's all action performance. Many pundits believe only one of the pair will be able to start against Russia in June, and Barkley will be wanting to show why it should be him over the Tottenham youngster.
