France 17/20 to win against England in tonight's worldwide friendly

14 Juin 2017

Burnley keeper Heaton will take over from Joe Hart at the start in Paris, with Stoke's Butland also set for playing time in the friendly.

Long-time first-choice Hart was widely criticised for allowing two late Leigh Griffiths free-kicks past him in Saturday's 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with Scotland. "It was never my intention to play Joe in this game", said Southgate. Once momentum builds and as a country starts winning things, every age group starts saying "why not us". "They've got their differences for sure, but they're similar in certain aspects as well".

It remains to be seen whether Hart, who has amassed 71 caps since making his debut against Trinidad and Tobago in 2008, will be seen again in an England shirt.

The 30-year-old has returned to Manchester City following an underwhelming season-long loan spell in Italy with Torino.

The pair are expected to go the Stade de France afterwards to watch the friendly between France and England, where tributes will be paid to the victims of the recent atrocities. They've got great players all the way through their squad. You need to give people game time; in the past one or two goalkeepers have given up worldwide football because they haven't had the chance.

Stones is normally utilised at the heart of the defence but is comfortable on the ball and Southgate says he considers the player an option for the holding midfield role as well.

"I'm not committing to a timescale on that".

"I think it has been a good experience to develop other leaders".

"There's no game we go into that we don't want to win, so we need to get the balance and structure of the team right and have a real go at France".

"There's lots of potential leaders in different ways - some are at the forefront, speak first, lead from the front in different ways".

"He obviously hasn't done that yet really, so that's a decision we have to make". I think he is.

Stones was left out of the Scotland match because, Southgate said, he had not featured "for seven weeks" for Manchester City.

In November 2015, England fans at Wembley sang "La Marseillaise" with their French counterparts ahead of a friendly just four days after the Paris atrocities. "We've had a couple of players that aren't with us for this camp", said the manager. "It's the best way to learn and improve".

However, instead of pushing on for a moral-boosting win to end the season, England spent most of the half on the back-foot and it was the hosts who sealed the victory courtesy of Ousmane Dembele's strike 12 minutes from time.

"That will push the players to perform at a higher level".
