Celtic midfielders Scott Brown and James Forrest will start for Scotland, along with new Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor.

England team: Hart, Walker, Jagielka, Cahill, Baines, Gerrard, Wilshere, Walcott, Rooney, Cleverley, Welbeck.

Scotland team: McGregor, Hutton, Whittaker, Hanley, Martin, Brown, Forrest, Snodgrass, Maloney, Morrison, Miller.
