England v Chile: Preview

Either Fraser Forster or John Ruddy will have a chance to pile more pressure on Joe Hart on Friday after England coach Roy Hodgson confirmed the out-of-form Manchester City goalkeeper will not start the friendly against Chile.

Hart has been dropped by City after a number of errors, and for the first time in three years, his place as England number one has come in to question.

The 26-year-old has been out of the City team for past three games and he will once again be on the substitutes' bench at Wembley when Chile visit for the international friendly.

``Joe Hart won't be starting tomorrow,'' the England manager said.

``You will have to work out for yourself which of the other two will.''

When asked whether both Norwich stopper Ruddy and Celtic goalkeeper Forster could both feature, Hodgson said: ``It's possible.''

Hart has made grave errors against Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Cardiff and Aston Villa this season while Forster has been in superb form for Celtic.

The 25-year-old from Hexham was dubbed 'The Wall' by Barcelona fans and players alike after he performed superbly against the Spanish giants in the Champions League.

Ruddy made his England debut last season and would have been in Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad had he not broken a finger in the run-up to the tournament.

``I have made it (his decision about which goalkeeper will start) but I am not prepared to reveal it,'' said Hodgson, who was giving little away about any of his first X1 against the Chileans.

The England boss confirmed Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana would both make their debuts, but would not say whether they would start, and confirmed that Rickie Lambert is out because of a muscle complaint.

Kyle Walker will miss the game through injury and Daniel Sturridge is likely to be rested because of a foot problem.

Frank Lampard will captain the side and pick up a golden cap to celebrate his 100th appearance for the Three Lions.

Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli, meanwhile, has told his side the World Cup starts on Friday.

Chile finished behind Argentina and Colombia in the South American qualifying group and play Brazil next week as preparations for the 2014 finals gather pace.

Even if England boss Hodgson opts to tinker with his line-up, Sampaoli will be taking the contest, and next week's clash with Brazil, seriously.

Sampaoli said: ``It's very, very important as part of our preparation. These next two friendly games, against top world sides like Brazil and England, will give us an idea of where we are and how we're going to compete in the World Cup.

``We know those two sides are going to give us a real stiff test and that's important for us.

``Any mistakes you make, they don't let you off. For me, the World Cup starts on Friday.

``Irrespective what the line-up is, it's important we hit our straps and treat it like it's the World Cup. It's a competitive match for us.''

England laboured through their World Cup qualifying group before beating Montenegro and Poland to secure their progress to the finals.

There have been numerous critics of Hodgson's side, but Sampaoli is not among them.

``The manager has got them quite disciplined and they're a strong unit defensively and keep things tight,'' he said.

``They're a good side with a good chance (at the World Cup). What they've got to do is make sure they create enough of a goal threat to cement those good chances.

``They are a team that will get stronger during a tournament. They will get better and better as they progress.''

Chile are likely to be without two of their more influential players.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has a calf strain and is out, while Palmeiras' Jorge Valdivia faces a late fitness test to determine whether he can play.
