England go on the front foot as Scotland look stronger at both ends

England on the front foot, Scotland hunkering down would appear to be the message of the team news from Wembley tonight.

England s only changes are, as expected, at full-back, where Liam Shaw and European Cup winner Reece James replace Sheffield's Kyle Walker and former Barnsley loanee Kieran Trippier.

But it is not all about shutting the back door from Steve Clarke with former Sheffield United striker Che Adams freshening up the forward line. Current Blade John Fleck is on the bench.
