Here are the confirmed teams:
England XI vs France: Hart, Clyne, Gibbs, Dier, Cahill, Stones, Alli, Barkley, Kane, Rooney (c), Sterling.
France XI vs England: Lloris – Digne, Koscielny, Varane, Sagna – Cabaye, Matuidi, Schneiderlin – Ben Arfa, Martial, Gignac.
It’s nice of Roy Hodgson to take Smalling out of Martial’s firing line isn’t it? In truth, Chris getting a rest will help him come back to Manchester United fully fit for the weekend clash with Watford.
Tonight might be a friendly on paper but the current situation with Paris means it has become a very signifiant game for the solidarity it will show, and it’ll be an emotional night.
