Stuart Pearce has handed full Under-21 debuts to Daniel Sturridge and Kyle Naughton as his team prepare to take on Macedonia in their opening Euro 2011 qualifier.
It's a hot afternoon in the town of Prilep where the stadium of Macedonian First League side Pobeda will host the Group Nine meeting.
A sell-out 7,000 crowd is expected and will be behind the home team who have already played their first qualifier, a 3-1 defeat to Greece, who England will face in Tripoli on Tuesday.
Lee Cattermole will captain the side which features eight members of the England squad who played in the Euro 2009 Finals in Sweden this summer.
The match is also live on ESPN.
