England get their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign underway tonight as they take on Switzerland in Basel.

Roy Hodgson received a blow as Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge was ruled out with a thigh injury so Arsenal’s latest signing Danny Welbeck comes in to the starting eleven.

Welbeck will start with a familiar face as he’ll partner Man Utd’s Wayne Rooney in attack while Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph comes in to the midfield in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

There was good news on the injury front as Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson was passed fit despite picking up an ankle knock in training on Sunday.

Here are the teams:


Hart, Stones, Cahill, Jones, Baines, Delph, Henderson, Wilshere, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck


Sommer, Lichtsteiner, Von Bergen, Rodriguez, Djourou, Inler, Xhaka, Behrami, Shaqiri, Seferovic, Mehmedi
