England vs Honduras

So England face Honduras in their final warm-up game before the World Cup. I didn't see the Peru game but saw the Ecuador game and actually thought England looked quite good - Barkley, Chamberlain and Lambert all impressed, although the defence were awful. Roy played a 'reserve' team in that game but you'd think that tonight's team will be pretty much full strength ahead of the first game against Italy. What team does everyone think Roy will play? And what do you feel is England's strongest line-up?

For me: Hart - Johnson(unfortunately, but who else?), Cahill, Jagielka, Baines - Gerrard, Henderson - Sterling, Rooney, Lallana - Sturridge.

I think that the team in the middle of the two games played the most attractive football, the team of players most likely to be on the bench. They didn't seem to defend as well (which I attribute to both midfield and defence) but they were more exciting to watch (possibly down to Barkley and Chamberlaine).

I really hope Barkley or Sterling start, with one coming off the bench to replace the other against Italy, and really drive at the opposition (energy sapping heat and humidity will mean they wouldn't be able to keep it up for 90 minutes), with more casual players like Lallana and Rooney either side of them and Sturridge up top. I kind of expect this too, though Welbeck and Lallana could start either side of Rooney.

What a woeful performance. Sturridge missed 2 sitters

Changed my mind about right back. put jones there instead of johnson. but to be honest anyone in the squad would be an improvement. awful.

Sterling is suspended so can't play, I'd say this team will be pretty close to the 1st team, 2 of Welbeck, Sterling or Lallana will play either side of Rooney, and Wilshire may sneak in next to Gerrard.

Wilson Palacios will finally do something and injure one of a players, useless ####.
