The US back four are slow. Put out the fastest players available up top and on the wings, and they'll likely wreak havoc.

I think Joe Cole and Lennon will start as the wide men with Rooney and Crouch up front.

This is what i think it will be: Green, Johnson, Terry, King, Cole, Lennon, Gerrard, Lampard, J Cole, Rooney, Heskey. but i'd like to see Hart in net

I'm going with Hart Johnson, Terry, King, Cole Lennon, Gerrard, Lampard, Milner, J Cole Rooney I think this give us the prosepct of all out attack with Gerrard or Lampard joinig in with Rooney, Milner semi-holdinh but adding weight in term of forward passing into the channels. Almost all season Rooney has been working the channel superbly, selecting the right one and banging in the goals, or ghosting in for headers. I think my line up delivers power pace and pressure

Oh and by the way - he probably won't select Joe but for me he is now the best net minder there as far as England is concerned. Jamo is injured and Green is precisely that....Green

I'd go for 4-5-1. Rooney upfront on his own with Gerrard playing just behind him in a more Attacking midfield role. Lampard and Milner in the Centre midfield. J.Cole on the left, Lennon on the right. Johnson, King, Terry, A.Cole at the back. Hart in goal would be good, but it'll more likely be James. I'd be chuffed if this happened
