England v San Marino takes place tonight as the Three Lions continue their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The game, which takes place at Wembley Stadium, is scheduled to kick off at 20:00 BST, and airs live in the UK on ITV 1/ITV 1 HD.

Manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will captain England in front of a capacity 90,000 crowd at Wembley.

The 26-year-old has been given the armband as a result of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard's absences through suspension and injury respectively.

"This is something I'm really proud of," said Rooney at Thursday's pre-match press conference.

"It's a big challenge for myself, and I'm excited. Hopefully we can cap the day off with a good victory."

The forward is aware of the importance of putting on a good performance in front of the home crowd.

"The players don't want to let the fans down," he continued.

"The fans, since I've been involved with England, have been fantastic. They follow us around the world. We're looking forward to the game and hopefully we can deliver for the fans."

Hodgson said of the sell-out crowd: "It shows the support there is for the national team football in this country, and how lucky we are to have an arena that takes 90,000 people.

"On this occasion it is not our opponents that are attracting people, just our players."
