England v Germany is certainly one of the biggest rivalries in international football, with tomorrows meeting at Wembley signalling the first clash between the two nations since Germany's 4-1 triumph over the Three Lions at the last World Cup.

Ahead of the match, Roy Hodgson has taken the unusual step of naming his starting eleven a day early.

The side he has chosen sees nine changes from the team that lost 2-0 to Chile on Friday thanks to two Alexis Sanchez goals, with only Adam Lallana and Wayne Rooney keeping their places.

German Chelsea midfielder Andre Schurrle apparently said that Rooney would not be good enough to get into the German team, however he was quick to claim that he was misquoted.

Kyle Walker, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge all missed the Chile game through injury, but have all been ruled fit to start tomorrow by Hodgson.

Joe Hart returns in goal as the struggling 'keeper was rested Friday as Fraser Forster was given his debut, whilst Ashley Cole is also back in the side.

Here is the starting 11 in full:

Joe Hart
Kyle Walker
Phil Jagielka
Chris Smalling
Ashley Cole
Steven Gerrard
Adam Lallana
Tom Cleverley 
Andros Townsend
Daniel Sturridge
Wayne Rooney
