England Announces Starting Lineup For World Cup 2010 Opener Versus United States

Fabio Capello’s lineup has been announced, but we will have to wait and see how it’s deployed. There is a chance we could see Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in central midfield. We could also see James Milner taking the position normally occupied by the now-injured Gareth Barry.

Emile Heskey starts with Wayne Rooney up top. Robert Green is in goal while Ledley King is in Rio Ferdinand’s vacated spot.
