Smith and Owen up front for England

England coach Steve McClaren paired Alan Smith with Michael Owen in attack against Germany at Wembley.

But Micah Richards, who was expected to get a place at the heart of the England defence following his performances for Manchester City, was given the right-back slot instead.

Joe Cole was handed a place on the left of midfield with David Beckham winning his 97th cap on the right.

Germany's patched-up side included under-fire Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann with Kevin Kuranyi and David Odonkor chosen to lead the attack for Joachim Loew's side.

England: Robinson, Richards, Ferdinand, Terry, Shorey, Beckham, Carrick, Lampard, Joe Cole, Smith, Owen.
Subs: James, Brown, Taylor, Barry, Neville, Dyer, Wright-Phillips, Downing, Defoe, Crouch, Carson.

Germany: Lehmann, Friedrich, Mertesacker, Metzelder, Lahm, Odonkor, Schneider, Hitzlsperger, Pander, Trochowski, Kuranyi.
Subs: Hildebrand, Kiessling, Hilbert, Helmes, Rolfes, Tasci, Castro.

Referee: Massimo Puscaba (Switzerland)
