James Milner has replaced the suspended Danny Welbeck in the England starting lineup to face Ukraine in their crucial World Cup qualifier this evening.

Welbeck was ruled out of tonight's game in Kiev by getting booked for kicking the ball away in Friday night's victory over Moldova.

Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson has continued with Southampton striker Rickie Lambert up front, with Jermain Defoe the only other available forward because of injuries to Daniel Sturridge, Wayne Rooney and Andy Carroll.

England: Hart; Walker, Cahill, Jagielka, Cole; Gerrard, Lampard, Wilshere; Walcott, Milner; Lambert
Subs: Ruddy, Forster, Smalling, Baines, Caulker, Carrick, Cleverley, Barkley, Defoe, Young, Sterling, Townsend
