England v Denmark: Projected lineups include Lallana and Oxlade-Chamberlain
England v Denmark: Projected lineups include Lallana and Oxlade-Chamberlain

England have one of the most interesting sides going into the current run of international friendlies as manager Roy Hodgson has so many young talents in his team that he could call on this go around.

With injuries to Phil Jones, Phil Jagielka and Kyle Walker, the back line is certain to have a shake up, but the attacking outfield of players is also prime for a reshuffle.

Chris Smalling is expected to slot into the vacant spot of Jagielka while Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are believed set to audition for permanent roles in the wide areas with Daniel Sturridge to lead the line in front of Wayne Rooney in support.

Additionally youngsters Luke Shaw, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Andros Townsend will all be hoping for playing time and a chance to make a statement ahead of the summer's trip to Brazil.

Denmark as well have their own injury losses with Christian Eriksen and Martin Braithwaite both set to miss the match. Eriksen will be a key component of the Danes chances to save face after failing to qualify for the World Cup.

The visitors in truth have little to play for but pride and England will be expected to win. But, the Danes are still strong and can be very resilient and will likely test the Three Lions more than they are likely to be believed.

England XI: Hart: Johnson, Smalling, Cahill, Baines; Carrick, Gerrard; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rooney, Lallana; Sturridge.

Denmark XI: Anderson: Jacobson, Bjelland, Agger, Kristensen; Poulsen, Kvist, Zimling; Kahlenberg, Bendtner, Krohn-Dehli.
