First published in Sport

Scott Parker will line-up against a potential future team-mate as England complete their competitive preparations for Euro 2012 against Belgium this afternoon.

The Spurs midfielder, as expected, once again takes his place in the centre of the park alongside Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard as Roy Hodgson's side look to build on last weekend’s 1-0 victory in Norway.

Belgium feature Jens Vertonghen in their side, with the Ajax defender expected to complete a move to Tottenham soon.

There are a total of seven changes from the team that started against the Norwegians, including a different back five, with Joe Hart returning in goal in place of West Ham’s Robert Green.

Parker’s current team-mate Jermain Defoe again has to settle for a place on the bench.

England line-up: Joe Hart (Manchester City); Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), John Terry (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea); James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal); Ashley Young (Manchester United), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United).

Substitutes: Phil Jones (Manchester United), Robert Green (West Ham United), Leighton Baines (Everton), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Stuart Downing (Liverpool), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Jack Butland (Birmingham City).
