Forwards Peter Crouch and Gabriel Agbonlahor will start for England in their World Cup qualifier against Belarus on Wednesday, manager Fabio Capello revealed.

With Wayne Rooney and Steve Gerrard injured, Capello is keen to look at options with England’s World Cup qualification already secure.

“The two forwards will be Crouch and Agbonlahor,” said Capello.

“We need to play other styles, style A, B, C. It depends on the opposition and the style of the game we need to play.

“We played always more or less the same style in all the games we’ve played.

“Sometimes, during the friendly games, we’ve changed it. But we need to practise other styles. I want to see some players in different positions.” With Rob Green suspended after his red card in the 1-0 defeat to Ukraine on Saturday, David James should have been given a chance to stake his claim for a starting place in the World Cup but he faces a late fitness test on a knee injury.
