It is 2012 and England are playing Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in a double pivot in a competitive match. They're also playing Jermain Defoe as a lone striker. They're playing two central midfielders in advanced positions. Welcome to the stone ages, England fans! There is good news, however. Tom Cleverley playing is good, even if he should be a bit deeper on the pitch. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting games is good, too. Oh, and Ukraine aren't exactly fearsome away from home. Here are the lineups.
England Lineup (4-2-3-1): Hart; Cole, Lescott, Jagielka, Johnson; Lampard, Gerrard; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cleverley, Milner; Defoe
Ukraine Lineup (4-2-3-1): Pyatov; Gusev, Khacheridi, Rakitskiy, Selin; Garmash, Tymoschuk; Yarmolenko, Rotan, Konoplyanka; Zozulya
Kickoff is at 3 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. in the UK from Wembley Stadium. You can catch the game on ITV1 in the UK or on FOX Soccer Channel in the United States.
