Team News: Jordan Henderson, Fabian Delph start in midfield for England in Switzerland

England boss Roy Hodgson opts for a three-man central midfield against Switzerland, with both Jordan Henderson and Fabian Delph in the starting XI.

Both Jordan Henderson and Fabian Delph start in midfield for England in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland.

There were concerns over Henderson's fitness after he reportedly injured his ankle in training, but the Liverpool man has been passed fit to start alongside Delph and Jack Wilshere in central midfield.

Delph comes into the side in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with England playing three central midfielders behind a front three of Raheem Sterling, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, who has replaced the injured Daniel Sturridge.

Hosts Switzerland name Bayern Munich's Xherdan Shaqiri in their XI, which shows three changes from the one that lost to Argentina in the World Cup round of 16.

Switzerland: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Von Bergen, Djourou, Rodriguez; Inler, Xhaka, Behrami; Shaqiri, Seferovic, Mehmedi

England: Hart; Stones, Cahill, Jones, Baines; Delph, Henderson, Wilshere; Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck
