After devastating to participate in the World Cup Englishmen play a friendly match at their stadium and in front of his audience against the selection of Norway. Rooney captain's armband by Gerard and rejuvenated England team probably he will bear all the responsibility on the ground.
England vs Norway, both teams play strong football with focus on possession of the ball. But, England have a better players and they need teamwork because it is a very young team. Norway have strong players who are not very famous, but they may resist any opponents on the field.
Roy Hodgson likely to have full complement of players available for Norway friendly. The only real concern after this weekend's Premier League matches was for Danny Rose, who limped off in the second half of Tottenham's 3-0 defeat to Liverpool. Hodgson was at White Hart Lane on Sunday and will have been impressed by the performances of Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and, in particular, Raheem Sterling.
Roy Hodgson is expecting a very tough game and he said: "They've had some very good players. Morten Gamst Pederson, Brede Hangeland, a group of players who have decided to retire or who are reaching the end. But they'll be hard to beat and it'll be an exceptionally tough game. There is a mood of negativity after what happened at the World Cup, and there's nothing I can do about that. But it won't help our boys. They'll go out against Norway and no matter how well prepared we get them and however keen they are to do well, they won't find it easy because Norway aren't a bad team. Anything other than a thrashing of Norway won't be particularly well-received."
Possible starting lineups:
We expect a great fight on the ground and the redemption of the Englishman in front of their fans
