Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy both start for England in Sunday's international friendly against Turkey.

Kane hit 25 goals for Tottenham Hotspur during the 2015-16 Premier League campaign, while Vardy netted 24 as Leicester City won the Premier League title.

In the absence of skipper Wayne Rooney, who won the FA Cup with Manchester United on Sunday, Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has decided to select Kane and Vardy in what appears to be a 4-3-3 formation.

There are five Tottenham players in the XI, while Jack Wilshere and Raheem Sterling are given opportunities to impress after difficult seasons for Arsenal and Manchester City respectively.

As for Turkey, Barcelona's Arda Turan is unavailable as his club prepare to play the Copa del Rey final later tonight, but Cenk Tosun, who has three goals in seven caps, is included in the XI.

Borussia Dortmund's Hakan Calhanoglu is also selected for the visitors, while the experienced Mehmet Topal will captain the side on his 57th international appearance.

England: Hart; Walker, Cahill, Stones, Rose; Dier, Wilshere, Alli; Sterling, Kane, Vardy
Subs: Forster, Heaton, Bertrand, Henderson, Drinkwater, Barkley, Townsend, Delph

Turkey: Babacan; Gonul, Balta, Topal, Erkin; Ozyakup, Inan, Tufan; Sen, Tosun, Calhanoglu
Subs: Kivrak, Tekin, Ozbayrakli, Calik, Potuk, Sahan, Tore, Koybasi, Malli, Erdinc, Tekdemir, Oztekin, Soyuncu, Mor
