England take on Honduras this evening in Miami's Sun Life Stadium. It is the last time for Roy Hodgson to assess his squad before the opening game against Italy on July 14.

Hodgson has made 10 changes to the side that faced Ecuador on Wednesday, only Wayne Rooney remains from the 2-2 draw.

The Manchester United man links up with Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck in the front line that England will hope fires them to glory this summer.

Raheem Sterling is out, suspended, after his red card against Ecuador. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out, injured, and could still miss the tournament this summer.

B/R UK

Hart—Not a lot to do, distribution has been poor at times; no real shots to save

Johnson—Targetted by the Honduras left side; had a much better second half with the change in formation; great cross for Sturridge's excellent chance

Jagielka—Mostly quiet half; one mistake coming out with the ball could have let Honduras in

Cahill—Solid performance but no real pressure from the Honduras front line

Baines—Decent second half; saw more of the ball and took more of a risk getting forward

Henderson—Looks calm and composed next to Gerrard; eager to step forward when given the opportunity; England's best player on the night

Gerrard—Always looking for the ball, coming deep to start off the play; usual energetic performance

Lallana—Came in the game more after the thunderstorm and showed a few good touches; disappeared a little when moved out right

Rooney—Too quiet; needs to do more to get into the game; not influential enough on the ball; subbed at half-time

Welbeck—Busy in the first 20 minutes but no real chances to speak of apart from the early shot from outside the box 

Sturridge—Should have scored but has looked lively, but the front three in general have been quiet; had two good chances where he should have done much better.

 

Substitutes

Wilshere—Looked lively; a good performance from the bench

Barkley—Almost made a wonderful introduction; dangerous with and without the ball; most likely to create a chance in the second half

Lambert—Didn't have much chance on the ball to take any chances

Lampard—Minor role as a substitute
