Roy Hodgson has handed first starts to three new players with England facing European minnows San Marino.

The England boss has named Everton youngster John Stones alongside team-mate Phil Jagielka in the centre of the defence, with Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in midfield and former non-league man Jamie Vardy up front.

A third Everton player, Ross Barkley, is another surprise inclusion in the team.

Recent England regulars such as Gary Cahill, Fabian Delph, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane are rested.

The Three Lions can qualify for Euro 2016 today if they beat San Marino, no matter what Slovenia do, as they have won both games of the head-to-head.
