England unveils starting squad for Germany encounter

Nov 18 2013, 10:14pm CST | by IANS

London, Nov 19 (IANS) Joe Hart will be back in goal to face Germany at Wembley Tuesday night as England manager Roy Hodgson has named his side more than 24 hours in advance.

London, Nov 19 — Joe Hart will be back in goal to face Germany at Wembley Tuesday night as England manager Roy Hodgson has named his side more than 24 hours in advance.

According to the Football Association, in the training session at London Colney Monday, which was fully open to the media, Hodgson set up an eleven-a-side game to work on formation and shape ahead of the friendly with Germany, reported Xinhua.

Judged from the training game, England's starting line-up is expected to be: Hart; Walker, Smalling, Jagielka, Cole; Gerrard, Cleverley, Lallana, Townsend; Rooney, Sturridge.

After training, when asked in press conference if the team he'd set-out would face Germany, Hodgson revealed: "I don't want to get the reputation of being tricky and cunning, which I don't particularly want at this stage in my life."

Compared with the starting squad in the 2-0 defeat to Chile on last Friday, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana are the only two survivors to face Germany.

England captain Steven Gerrard will make his 108th international appearance Tuesday, equalling legend Bobby Moore' s numbers.

Gerrard said: "I'm very proud to be able to equal Bobby Moore's record of 108 England caps. And a bit embarrassed as well - you're talking about a World Cup winner and an iconic figure.

"He is someone who was a hero to everyone in the country and to equal his record is a fantastic achievement. Myself and my family are very proud."

Both sides have qualified for the Brazil World Cup finals in 2014.

The last time England faced Germany was at the 2010 World Cup, where Three Lions suffered a 4-1 defeat in a last-16 clash.

Manchester City look awful and it might get worse

Oct 30 2014 10:01am CDT | Source: SBNation

Dumped out of the League Cup by Newcastle, Manchester City have made a terrible start to the season, and if they're not careful their campaign could be over before it's really begun. Slice it anyway you like, but things aren't looking too good for Manchester City. In the knee-jerk reaction, they've just been beaten at home, to nil, by Alan Pardew's confusing mess of a Newcastle team, the defence of their League Cup over ...

West Ham vs. Manchester City: Goals, Highlights from Premier League Match

Oct 25 2014 8:42am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

West Ham pulled off a shocking result on Saturday in the Premier League, holding off defending Champions Manchester City 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground.  Morgan Amalfitano fired the Hammers ahead early from close range.  While the goal itself wasn't particularly amazing, it's worth a second look, as the supplier of the pass, Enner Valencia, goes flying into the away support after his pass. Diafra Sakho doubled the hosts' lead in the second half wi ...

West Ham United reinforced their claims for a push for the European places with a battling 2-1 win over champions Manchester City on Saturday. The Hammers were extremely lively against a City side who looked off the pace for much of the contest. Goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho set them on their way to victory, and not even a brilliant goal from David Silva could spark City into claiming a share of the spoils. The Hammers handed Manchester C ...
