LIVE BLOG: England v Peru

In the build up to Brazil, England are at a cross roads – one which has seen them saddled with negative expectations and doubts from every corner of the Three Lions ethos.  This will be a defining World Cup for not only manager Roy Hodgson, but for the young English players he has included.  Will England start down the path of forming a new identity or will they just find another way to come up well short of the mark – today’s pre-World Cup friendly against Peru will start to unlock some of the answers.

- Should Wayne Rooney remain a vital piece of the England puzzle or should Roy Hodgson begin to look elsewhere
