Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will make his first England start in Tuesday`s friendly international against Italy after an instant impact on his debut last week, manager Roy Hodgson said on Monday.
Wayne Rooney might break Bobby Charlton`s 45-year-old England scoring record of 49 goals this season but he must be successful at a major championship to be regarded as one of the country`s greats said coach Roy Hodgson.
England manager Roy Hodgson will be without in-form striker Danny Welbeck and three other players for Tuesday`s friendly against Italy in Turin due to injuries. Arsenal striker Welbeck limped off during England`s 4-0 win over Lithuania at Wembley on Friday with a knee problem after scoring his sixth goal in five Euro 2016 qualifiers.
England have been hit by two injury blows ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania next week with goalkeeper Fraser Forster almost certain to miss out and defender Luke Shaw a definite withdrawal.
Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has found himself embroiled in a bizarre incident after footage emerged of him being knocked out by former team-mate Phil Bardsley in an impromptu boxing match in his kitchen.
