    • 84' England sub: Lampard on, Henderson off.
    • 83' Bernardez has been clattered by his own man and is receiving treatment.
    • 81' Play opens up for Henderson 25 yards out and he has a crack, but his shot drifts over the bar.
    • 79' England sub: Lambert on, Welbeck off.
    • 77' Baines is booked for a late one on Palacios.
    • 75' England sub: Forster on, Hart off.
    • 74' Sturridge should score! Johnson crosses from the right but Sturridge puts his free header over the bar. Had to score.
    • 72' England are probing, but Honduras are defending very deep and making it difficult for England to break them down.
    • 70' Cahill is in the book for an OTT aerial challenge on Bengtson.
    • 68' Honduras sub: Delgado on, Costly off.
    • 66' Henderson plays in Lallana, who makes a quick turn but cannot bring the ball fully under control.
    • 64' RED CARD. Beckeles is sent off for clattering Baines with a loose elbow. He could have got a straight red for that, but it's a second yellow and Honduras are down to 10 men.
    • 62' Bernardez spanks the resulting free-kick at goal from 25 yards, but it flashes just wide. Just as well, would have broken the net.
    • 60' Lallana catches Espinoza with a high challenge, and the Southampton man is the latest to go into the book.
    • 59' Welbeck plays it through to Lallana, but Valladares is quick off his line to smother. The ball comes out to Barkley, but he smashes it high and wide.
    • 57' Great break by England as Welbeck and Wilshere combine on the break to find Barkley, but Izaguirre makes a perfectly-timed challenge as Barkley was about to pull the trigger.
    • 55' England well on top, particularly since Barkley and Wilshere's introduction. A goal would not be undeserved for the Three Lions.
    • 53' Another chance for Sturridge as Barkley finds him but the Liverpool man goes for an audacious chip when he should have just whacked it.
    • 51' The Hondurans are flying into the tackles recklessly today. Beckeles gets a yellow for a studs up challenge on Welbeck, who is ok.
    • 49' Bernardez is booked for a clumsy, late tackle on Barkley.
    • 47' Great effort by Barkley within two minutes of coming on! The Everton man bends an effort towards goal from 25 yards that doesn't quite turn back in time. What an introduction that would have been.
    • 46' England sub: Barkley on, Rooney off.
    • 46' Enlgland sub: Wilshere on, Gerrard off.
    • 45' HT England 0-0 Honduras. The referee brings to an end a half that kicked off an hour an a half ago.
    • 32' Emiliano sees yellow for blasting the ball at Sturridge while he was on the ground. This friendly has been anything but.
    • 29' Sturridge has taken a knock here. He's holding his ankle but is back on his feet and will play on.
    • 27' We're back underway here after the delay. The rain has eased and we have just under 20 minutes until half time.
    • 25' Play has been suspended here. The referee has called the players off the field for a 30-minute hiatus while an electrical storm is allowed to pass.
    • 23' Sturridge will be disappointed with that as he had the goal at his mercy, but it was a slick counter-attack by England.
    • 22' Big chance for Sturridge! Rooney's cross is dummied brilliantly by Welbeck as it runs through to Sturridge, but the Liverpool striker surprisingly drags his shot just wide of the post.
    • 20' Excellent play by Welbeck, who runs forward and slips in Sturridge, whose cross is partially cut out before it can reach Rooney.
    • 18' England win a free kick just outside the box on the right. Gerrard whips it in and it's cleared to Lallana, whose ambitious volley is horribly high.
    • 16' Speaking of storms, there's one brewing in Miami. Rain, thunder and lightning expected before the 90 minutes are up.
    • 15' Lallana robs Izaguirre of the ball and drills in a low cross, but no England can make contact and Honduras survive the storm.
    • 14' Bengtson finds some space 25 yards out and goes for goal - but his shot deflects off an England defender and goes over Hart's goal. For some reason, a goal kick is given.
    • 12' Rooney smacks the free-kick at goal that Valladares awkwardly parries away to Sturridge, but the Liverpool man is flagged offside.
    • 11' England are back on the front foot as Henderson wins a free kick 30 yards out after being tripped by Costly.
    • 9' Gerrard whips in a cross from the left that finds Welbeck, but he's unable to untangle the ball from under his feet.
    • 7' Johnson is caught sleeping as Costly finds space on the left, but his cross is plucked from the air by Hart.
    • 5' Honduras get a corner on the left that Cahill glances away to Chavez, who lashes over from a tight angle.
    • 3' Chance for Welbeck! The Manchester United striker has a go from 20 yards that stings the palms of Valladares. Decent effort, but too close to the 'keeper.
    • 2' England are enjoying plenty of the ball early on here. Honduras trying to just get a foothold in the early stages.
    • 1' KICK OFF. Honduras get us underway.

    • 21.40 Given the recent injuries to Marco Reus and Franck Ribery, the players will be desperate to get through today's match unscathed. The national anthems have been played, and we're just about ready to go...
    • 21.35 Hodgson: "This is an important test in very hot conditions. We need to control the tempo and take the game to Honduras, becuase it's important to keep the ball in this heat."
    • 21.30 Raheem Sterling is suspended after his red card in the last game, so Welbeck starts again.
    • 21.20 So Roy Hodgson makes 10 changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Ecuador on Wednesday. On Wayne Rooney keeps his place as the England manager fields the side that many expect to start against Italy in seven day's time.
