England Vs. Switzerland, Euro 2012 Qualifying: Three Lions Lineup

The England lineup is out for England's Euro 2012 Qualifying match against Switzerland, and there's only one surprise in Fabio Capello's side. Despite Ashley Young's great performance against Wales and Stewart Downing's great performances for Aston Villa this year, Capello has opted to start James Milner. This is almost certainly because of his defensive qualities, as Switzerland's wingers are their most dangerous players. Here is the lineup.

England lineup (4-3-3): Joe Hart; Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole; Frank Lampard, Scott Parker, Jack Wilshere; Theo Walcott, Darren Bent, James Milner

England Bench: Robert Green, Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines, Gareth Barry, Ashley Young, Stewart Downing, Bobby Zamora

It's great to see Bobby Zamora on the bench after recovering from injury. He's a much better than Darren Bent at holding up the ball, and could be a useful sub for Capello. Either Young or Downing is likely to feature in the match at some point as well.
