England vs. Brazil: Lineups

No huge surprises are in store in terms of lineups as England take on Brazil at Wembley. Without much in the way of a midfield, Roy Hodgson's been forced to throw Jack Wilshere, Steven Gerrard and Tom Cleverley into a trio behind Wayne Rooney. Danny Welbeck gets the nod ahead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left, but in general the Three Lions are more or less as expected.

Luis Felipe Scolari and Brazil are also as expected, mostly because they announced their lineups yesterday and appear to be mostly in this to have a good time. They should also be in a 4-3-3, with Corinthians man Paulinho anchoring midfield behind a dangerous attack that somehow manages to feature both Neymar and Ronaldinho.

England starting lineup (4-3-3): Joe Hart; Ashley Cole, Phil Jagielka Chris Smalling, Gary Cahill, Glen Johnson; Jack Wilshere, Steven Gerrard, Tom Cleverley; Daniel Welbeck, Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott.

Brazil starting lineup (4-3-3): Julio Cesar; Adriano, David Luiz, Dante, Dani Alves; Paulinho, Ramires, Oscar; Neymar, Luis Fabiano, Ronaldinho.
