England manager Gareth Southgate has brought in Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and John Stones to replace the suspended Dele Alli and the injured Phil Jones.

Sterling is expected to play in the No.10 role behind Harry Kane, with Marcus Rashford and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the wings.

Kane captains the side with Gary Cahill partnering Stones in defence and Joe Hart playing in goal.


Alli was handed a one-match suspension by FIFA following an offensive gesture which he claims was directed at Kyle Walker and not the referee.

England team in full:

Hart, Walker, Cahill, Stones, Bertrand, Dier, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sterling, Rashford, Kane.

Slovenia team in full:

Oblak; Al.Struna, Mevlja, Cesar, Jokic; Bezjak, Krhin, Rotman, Verbic; Ilicic; Sporar.
