Fabio Capello has risked the wrath of England fans by declaring he plans to send out a team of reserves against Ghana at Wembley.
Remarkably, the friendly is a sell-out, but Capello has announced he could make 11 changes and has already sent home five senior players who played in the 2-0 win in Wales.
Among them are Wayne Rooney and restored captain John Terry, which means there will be a new skipper for the clash.
Fifth choice Gareth Barry — who was not even in the 18-man match-day squad in Cardiff — is next in line.

Welsh FA say they are powerless to crack down on idiotic fans
The Welsh FA admitted last night it was almost impossible to crack down on the 'stupid' fans bringing lasers into the Millennium Stadium.
England keeper Joe Hart was targeted, as was midfielder Scott Parker and defender Ashley Cole.
An FAW spokesman said: ‘We have discussed it with the English FA but it’s very difficult because the laser pens are so small and difficult to detect.’
The culprits actions went little way to helping the Welsh who were soundly beaten in the Euro 2012 qualifier in Cardiff.

So another captain for England and more news of Capello´s inability to tell his players important bits of information ... can you see my shocked face?
And as for the laser pointers - anyone who does get caught doing it needs to be banned from football grounds for life, there is no excuse for such behaviour at all
