James Milner selected ahead of the Gunner

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has been left out of the England starting line-up to take on Ukraine this evening.

The Gunner made the difference in the Three Lions’ victory over Sweden in their last match, scoring the equaliser before setting up the winner for Danny Welbeck.

However Roy Hodgson has elected to keep James Milner in the starting XI, with Wayne Rooney in for Andy Carroll the only change.

England need at least a point to ensure qualification to the last 16, while victory could see them top the group if France fail to beat the Swedes.

If England do finish second they will face Spain, but if they do win the group they will take on Italy.

England: Hart, Johnson, Terry, Lescott, Cole, Milner, Parker, Gerrard, Young, Rooney, Welbeck.
