Daniel Sturridge's header eight minutes from time secured a 1-0 victory for England over Denmark following a spirited performance from the visitors.

Roy Hodgson opted for five Liverpool players in his starting XI, with Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Steve Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Glen Johnson - making his 50th appearance for England - all given the go-ahead at Wembley.

In their final match before Hodgson has to decide on the 23-man squad that will travel to Brazil for the World Cup, the Three Lions came up against familiar faces including Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.

England, who went into the match with back-to-back losses against Chile and Germany, were left frustrated by the Danes and it took until the 82nd minute for England to break the deadlock.

Substitute Adam Lallana impressed after replacing the injured Jack Wilshere in the second-half and his teasing delivery found the head of Sturridge, who guided the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel.
