England vs. Scotland: Lineups

Dan Kitwood

Wayne Rooney starts for England as they take on their rivals at Wembley, while Scotland pick an attacking lineup.

Wayne Rooney starts for England as Roy Hodgson picks his side to take on Scotland for the first time in 13 years.

The want-away Manchester United striker starts just behind his teammate Danny Welbeck, with Steven Gerrard and Jack Wilshere in midfield. Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill are chosen at center-back, with Kyle Walker at right-back, with Tom Cleverley in an unfamiliar position on the wing.

Meanwhile, Gordon Strachan has chosen a very offensive lineup to take to the field, with four attacking midfielders playing ahead of Scott Brown. James Forrest is to start along with Shaun Maloney on the wings, while Kenny Miller comes into the side after impressing for his club, with Leigh Griffiths dropping to the bench. James Morrison continues in midfield, but relinquishes the captain's armband to Scott Brown.

England starting lineup Joe Hart; Kyle Walker, Phil Jagielka, Gary Cahill, Leighton Baines; Steven Gerrard, Jack Wilshere; Theo Walcott, Wayne Rooney, Tom Cleverley; Danny Welbeck.

Scotland starting lineup (4-5-1): Allan McGregor; Alan Hutton, Grant Hanley, Russell Martin, Steven Whittaker; Robert Snodgrass, Scott Brown; James Forrest, James Morrison, Shaun Maloney; Kenny Miller.
