Roy Hodgson: 'Joe Hart will start one friendly'

England manager Roy Hodgson reveals that he intends to play goalkeeper Joe Hart against either Chile or Germany, but the Manchester City stopper will not feature in both fixtures.

England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that goalkeeper Joe Hart will start one of England's upcoming friendlies.

Hart has been dropped from his position at Manchester City after a string of poor performances, but Hodgson has insisted that the 26-year-old remains first choice for his country.

The former Fulham boss told reporters: "Joe will definitely start one of the games, but I don't think that he will start both.

"I feel that it is important for me to look at the other two goalkeepers, but I haven't decided when and where just yet.

"Joe will start one of the games because he is our number one goalkeeper. I would say that it would be more likely against Germany rather than Chile, but that decision hasn't been made yet."

Hodgson has named a 28-man squad for the two friendlies, which will both take place at Wembley.
