Scholes: Wayne Rooney Must Start For England at Euro 2016

LEICESTER ENGLAND- JANUARY 20: Andy King of Leicester City in action with Eric Dier of Tottenham Hotspur during The Emirates FA Cup Third Round Replay match between Leicester City and Tottenham at the King Power Stadium on January 20, 2016 in Leiceste

Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy scored to give England a 2-1 friendly win over Turkey at the Etihad stadium.

The two topped the Premier League scoring chart this season, Kane taking the Golden Boot with 25, one ahead of Vardy and Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

The 29-year-old scored the victor goal but failed to convince either in a wide position or in tandem with central-striker Harry Kane, who opened the scoring after two minutes before missing a second half penalty. We've had great successful with Welbeck, Rooney and Sterling. For large swathes of the game we played reasonably well.

"I was looking forward, if I'm going to play, to having faced him", Ryan said.

As long as they're played in the right formation - which for me should see the two as a pair up front, rather than Vardy out on the left of a front three - then they cause Europe's top sides problems.

"I don't really get nervous (in games), it's unusual", Vardy said. "He was more than happy to play in either system and I think it was a success because he's come away with a penalty and a goal".

Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne also joined up with Hodgson's squad after being given time off following Wednesday's Europa League final defeat to Sevilla.

Rashford, who picked up a knock in his side's 2-1 FA Cup win over Crystal Palace at Wembley on Saturday, could feature in the friendly against Australia on Friday.

"We believe it's not a serious injury, but he obviously took a nasty knock", said Hodgson, who gave run-outs to fit-again midfielders Jack Wilshere and Jordan Henderson.

He later moved into the centre and scored the victor after Tottenham striker Harry Kane had given England an early lead.

He also says Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane should start up front, adding Jamie Vardy could be used as a high-quality substitute.

However, Babacan was relieved to see Kane fire his post-kick against the frame of the goal, although a mix-up between the keeper and Ismail Koybasi from a corner resulted in Vardy blasting home on the rebound following Gary Cahill's header. "I practice them a lot and this is the first one I've missed for a while".

"I'm really not concerned". And the England manager acknowledged that Rashford would be under pressure to make an immediate impact.
