Roy Hodgson was keeping his cards close to his chest ahead of facing Honduras

Liverpool's Raheem Sterling had been expected to start but was ruled out due to suspension after being sent-off against Ecuador.

With no further warm-up games to come, it now seems like this is Hodgson's preferred starting XI and a strong performance against Honduras should ensure the line-up starting berths against Italy next Saturday.

Kick-off is at 21:45 British time.

England team to face Honduras: Hart; Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Gerrard, Henderson; Lallana, Rooney; Welbeck; Sturridge.
