The biggest surprise is Southampton’s Lambert will lead the line.
Ahead of Friday’s World Cup qualifier with Moldova, England have named their starting XI for the clash as injuries force manager Roy Hodgson to change things around.
In the absence of both Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge, Southampton striker Rickie Lambert will start after the 31-year-old scored on the forward’s international debut against Scotland last month.
Lambert will be flanked by Arsenal winger Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck of Manchester United, as the Three Lions opt for a 4-3-3 formation – something that has worked well for the country in the past.
Usual right-back Glen Johnson has also been sidelined, which gives Kyle Walker a crack in the team, whilst Phil Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also sit out the tie.
The full starting XI is as follows:
Joe Hart (Manchester City).
Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea).
Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Frank Lampard (Chelsea).
Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Rickie Lambert (Southampton), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United).
