England have confirmed their starting eleven for their clash with Switzerland tonight, the first of their Euro 2016 qualifiers ahead of the possible campaign in France.
New Arsenal star Danny Welbeck is set to lead the line after the injury suffered by Daniel Sturridge in the clash against Norway last week. Welbeck moved to Arsenal for £16 million on deadline day.
Wayne Rooney is also included despite the questions over his form recently. The new England captain did scored against Norway, but it was from the penalty spot, and there were doubts about his overall display against a team that are not ranked highly in world football.
There is also a proud moment for fans of Aston Villa and Leeds United as Fabian Delph makes his first start for England after playing well in the friendly game last week. Delph is another graduate of Leeds’s famed academy, and his inclusion comes after good form for Villa in the Premier League in recent months.
England side vs Switzerland: Hart, Stones, Cahill, Jones, Baines, Delph, Henderson, Wilshere, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck #SSNHQ
