England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has revealed that Shaun Wright-Phillips will start against the Netherlands.

But Wright-Phillips will make his first start for England playing on the right, not on the left as had been expected.


He will line up alongside Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney up front, with David Beckham on the right side of midfield with Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.


Eriksson also revealed that Wes Brown will start alongside Jamie Carragher in the injury-hit centre of defence.


When asked if Brown and Carragher would start, Eriksson replied: "I could tell you, yes.


"It's a blow that four or five central defenders are away because of injuries.


"On the other hand it's good for Carragher and Brown to show what they can do at this level. That's positive."


"I think this afternoon you will see practice and will understand at once," said Eriksson.


There was more to this article but it was pretty boring and repetitive......
