All of the England squad - including Ashley Young, who was apparently carrying a knock, took part in Saturday's training session.

Hodgson is expected to name the same team which started the 1-0 victory over Ukraine, which sees Wayne Rooney partner Manchester United team-mate Danny Welbeck in attack with James Milner and Young handed roles out wide.

Italy will definitely be without defender Giorgio Chiellini at the Olympic Stadium.

The 27-year-old sustained a thigh injury in the 2-0 victory over Ireland and was replaced by Juventus team-mate Leonardo Bonucci, who is likely to take his place in Kiev.

Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli could spring a surprise in his attack using the pace of Mario Balotelli and Antonio Di Natale to test the England backline.
