England boss Roy Hodgson tells ITV Sport that Norwich Keeper John Ruddy is likely to feature in the second half of the friendly against Italy.

Hodgson said that Butland got the nod ahead of the Canary Number One because he'd had longer to gel with the squad.

He said Ruddy would be "Kept up his sleeve" ready to bring on in the second half.
