While a win would be very important, especially as Hodgson’s men could move clear at the top with a win depending on results elsewhere, it will also mark the 100th time that Wayne Rooney has appeared for England.

The 29 year old has made a strong impression since replacing Steven Gerrard as captain after the world cup and has yet to lose a game and his appearance on Saturday will take him to 9th in the all-time appearances list while he is also closing in on Bobby Charlton’s goal scoring record.

With points and Rooney already talking points, additional headlines were hardly needed however that has proved to be the case with the NFL clash between the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars ensuring that the surface at Wembley is also in the news.

The game between the two American behemoths was played last Sunday, just six days and has resulted in officials at the stadium admitting that it could take up to 4 months for the pitch to recover.

While work will be done between now and the clash, the surface could play into Slovenia’s hand somewhat, something that Hodgson will be aware of.

The former Liverpool manager has included Saido Berahino in his squad for the first time with the WBA man hoping to make an impression while forgotten man Stewart Downing has been recalled to the squad with Daniel Sturridge once again missing out.

England will take on Scotland at Celtic Park three days after the clash with the Slovenians.
