England 2 : 1 Italy
ALL SQUARE ... Phil Jagielka equalises for England

Birmingham’s Butland, 19, is a confident young man, despite having never played above League Two level during a loan spell with Cheltenham.

Ruddy was unlucky to break a finger in training just before the Euros and deserved this chance. The Norwich man justified his place, too, with a couple of cracking saves.

The jury is still out on Adam Johnson though, who, at the age of 25, cannot nail down a place at Manchester City.

Wideman Johnson showed some invention but needs more games to develop consistency.

England had only one survivor from the team knocked out by Italy in Kiev — Ashley Young.

For their part, Italy, who had also brought a shadow squad, had three survivors as well as a midfielder by the name of Alberto Aquilani — the one-time £20million Liverpool misfit now at Fiorentina.
