Danny Welbeck should be in line for an England start on Monday as Roy Hodgson's side commence their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a potentially tricky trip to Switzerland.
Striker Welbeck - who has been in the headlines recently after completing a surprise transfer deadline day move from Manchester United to rivals Arsenal last week - only featured as a substitute in the Three Lions' narrow friendly victory over Norway on Wednesday, yet will surely deputise for Daniel Sturridge at St Jakob-Park in Basel.
Liverpool talisman Sturridge would have been an automatic selection for Hodgson ahead of this one, yet he will unfortunately play no part whatsoever in proceedings after sustaining a thigh injury during a routine training session on Friday.
While some had remained hopeful that the 25-year-old could recover in time to play, a subsequent scan ruled out that possibility and he has since returned to Merseyside for treatment from Brendan Rodgers' medical team.
Though Hodgson may have the urge to be slightly conservative given that this match represents arguably the toughest of an otherwise relatively straightforward qualifying group, criticism of England's insipid display against the hugely defensive Norwegians at Wembley - which provoked the manager into a furious reaction - should ensure that he does not make too many other changes.
Only one change?
In fact, it would not be at all surprising to see Welbeck represent the only minor alteration from that aforementioned 1-0 victory.
This would mean young Everton defender John Stones keeping his place at right-back with the likes of Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker still not fit, with Jack Wilshere and Jordan Henderson providing the midfield basis for the likes of Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and new captain Wayne Rooney to get forward in support of Welbeck.
With Switzerland ranked 11 places above England in the latest FIFA World Rankings, this will certainly not be an easy tie to negotiate.
England predicted XI to face Switzerland:
Hart, Stones, Cahill, Jones, Baines; Wilshere, Henderson; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sterling, Rooney; Welbeck.
