The reintroduction of Raheem Sterling is one of six changes for England against Iceland.

England have recalled Raheem Sterling to their starting XI for this evening's Euro 2016 last-16 showdown with Iceland.

The Manchester City forward has been drafted in at the expense of Liverpool's Adam Lallana as one of six changes from the 0-0 draw with Slovakia.

Kyle Walker and Danny Rose have been restored at full-back, while Chris Smalling and Gary Cahill make up the remainder of the Three Lions' rearguard.

Several British-based players feature in Iceland's unchanged lineup, with Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson and Cardiff City's Aron Gunnarsson supporting Kolbeinn Sigthorsson of Nantes in the attack.

England: Hart; Walker, Smalling, Cahill, Rose; Dier, Alli, Rooney; Sterling, Sturridge, Kane
