England: Upson set to start


Filed: Wednesday, 6th February 2008
By: Matthew O'Greel


Matthew Upson is in line to start for England against Switzerland tonight according to the morning papers.

Several of today's tabloids are claiming that new England boss Fabio Capello has opted to start with the Hammers centre-half, who is set to win his eighth cap partnering Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand.

Capello is thought to have opted for Upson ahead of Tottenham's newest recruit Jonathon Woodgate and fellow central defenders Curtis Davies and Ledley King.

The game can be seen live in the UK on the BBC later tonight.

Elsewhere Lucas Neill is set to start for Australia in their World Cup qualifier against Qatar later this morning.

The Socceroos face the footballing minnows in Melbourne at 8.30am GMT; Neill will fly back to England immediately after the game.

Also in action tonight is full-back George McCartney who is set to represent Northern Ireland against Bulgaria in Belfast.
