Capello sticks with same line-up that beat Slovenia

England coach Fabio Capello has decided to stick with the same starting XI that ensured England's passage to the last 16.

Matthew Upson keeps his place alongside John Terry, while Jermain Defoe starts ahead of Emile Heskey.

James Milner, who impressed against Slovenia starts on the right-hand side of midfield once more as England look to overcome Germany and progress to the quarter finals of the tournament.

Germany have made just one change from the side that defeated Ghana 1-0 in their final group match, with Miroslav Klose returning from his one-game ban to replace Cacau in attack.

Bastian Schweinsteiger has recovered from a hamstring injury to take his place in central midfield, and ahead of him the trio of Mueller, Oezil and Podolski all play.

The line-ups are as follows:
