San Marino vs. England: Lineups

Facing a team of amateurs, Roy Hodgson has decided to help out his opposition by playing a right back who doesn't really know how to play football. Yes, it's (a very injured) England vs. San Marino in World Cup qualifying, and Kyle Walker is once again pretending to be a senior international. All very confusing.

England aren't taking their hosts' threat particularly seriously -- a central midfield pairing of Tom Cleverley and Frank Lampard would normally make even the most hardened tactical cynic weep bloody tears of rage -- but it's San Marino. Whatever.

San Marino starting lineup: The butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker...*

England starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Joe Hart; Leighton Baines, Joleon Lescott, Chris Smalling, Kyle Walker; Ashley Young, Frank Lampard, Tom Cleverley, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe.

*I haven't seen San Marino lineups and it's very difficult to convince myself that finding them will enlighten anyone in any meaningful way.
