England boss Gareth Southgate hands a debut to Burnley defender James Tarkowski for the friendly with Italy on Tuesday night.

England boss Gareth Southgate has handed a debut to Burnley defender James Tarkowski for the friendly with Italy on Tuesday night.

Tarkowski has enjoyed an impressive season in the Premier League with the Clarets, and the centre-back gets the opportunity to make an impact on the left-hand side of a three-man backline.

Jamie Vardy gets the nod in attack, but Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling keep their place after impressing in the 1-0 victory over the Netherlands on Friday night.

Eric Dier is preferred to Jordan Henderson in the centre of the pitch, while Ashley Young is named at left wing-back in place of Danny Rose.

As for Italy, Gianluigi Donnarumma is named between the sticks as a replacement for Gianluigi Buffon, with Chelsea's Davide Zappacosta coming into the team at right-back.

Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini - linked with several Premier League clubs - is given another chance to make an impact, but Marco Verratti drops out of the team.

England: Butland; Walker, Stones, Tarkowski; Trippier, Dier, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Young; Lingard, Sterling, Vardy
Subs: Rose, Hart, Henderson, Maguire, Mawson, Livermore, Lallana, Cook, Dele, Rashford, Pickford, Pope, Welbeck

Italy: Donnarumma; Zappacosta, Rugani, Bonucci, De Sciglio; Pellegrini, Jorginho, Parolo; Candreva, Insigne, Immobile
Subs: Buffon, Perin, Florenzi, Darmian, Ferrari, Ogbonna, Verratti, Gagliardini, Cristante, Bonaventura, Belotti, Chiesa, Cutrone, Verdi
