Fabio Capello’s England have a fully fit squad ahead of this knockout match with Joachim Loew’s Germany side.
Although centre backs Ledley King and Jamie Carragher are fit and free from suspension, Capello is set to stick with John Terry and Matthew Upson as his preferred central defensive pairing.
Capello is also set to stick with a midfield foursome consisting of Gareth Barry, James Milner, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
Upfront, there is some concern over the fitness of Wayne Rooney after the Man United man sustained an ankle injury in England’s victory over Slovenia. However, the Manchester United striker is thought to be sufficiently fit to start. After his goal against Slovenia, Jermain Defoe is set to partner Rooney, with Heskey and Crouch on the bench.
Joachim Loew’s Germany side welcome striker Miroslav Klose back from suspension. With Brazilian born forward Cacao out, Klose’s return is timely and the striker is set to partner Lukas Podolski in attack for the Germans.
Rated doubtful is influential midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger – who has a thigh strain – and Jerome Boateng who has a calf injury. However, one of the stars of the 2010 World Cup so far, Mesut Ozil has overcome an ankle injury of his own and will start for Germany.
