England boss Roy Hodgson is keeping his cards close to his chest over his starting XI for the friendly clash against Italy on Wednesday..

Speculation is rife over who will line up in goal in the absence of Joe Hart, who pulled out of the encounter in Berne. Birmingham keeper Jack Butland is in contention with Norwich's John Ruddy for the vacant spot.

When asked who would start in goal, Hodgson told a press conference: "I can't say that because I haven't actually spoken to the players. I haven't even given them an indication of who is playing unless they try to read my mind during the training sessions and see how people line up there."
