Teams - England v Switzerland
Before anything else I would like to say that I hope that the minutes silence in tribute of the Busby Babes that were tragically killed 50 years ago will be impeccable observed, which I feel it will - I also hope this is the case in the Manchester Derby at the weekend.
David James and Glen Johnson were in the original 30 man squad, but Johnson missed out on the final 23. However on Sunday night Jermain Defoe was called into this party.
James starts in goal as he looks to rightly stake his claim to be the England no.1 that he should have been for the past 2 years. Defoe takes a place on the bench, but then again so were the rest of the squad...
This is the England line up:
This was 'supposed' to be a game in preparation for Euro 2008 in Switzerland and Austria this summer, but as we all know this is not how it panned out...
Switzerland line up like this:
For those of you not at the game, if you are listening on the radio or watching on TV why not make a few comments below as the game unfolds so we can share our thoughts... having James involved will surely capture people's imaginations tonight wont it?
PLAY UP POMPEY - AND DAVID JAMES!
