Villa's Ashley Young will start England's friendly with Holland in Amsterdam.

Steven Gerrard has not made the trip because of a slight groin injury picked up in training on Monday, so coach Fabio Capello has decided Young should fill the left-sided midfield berth.

Capello said: 'It will be a good test for him. He has only played twice for me but the last time he did very well. It will be a good test for him.'

The Villa star's pace could present a major problem to a Dutch side that has already qualified for next summer's World Cup.

Young has recently been in demand, with Manchester United and Spurs both after him, but Villa insist they are not selling, and say Young does not want to move.

It will be Young's sixth cap, but only his second under Capello. The first, against Germany in Berlin last season, was not a great success even though England won the game.

However, Young did better in the World Cup encounter with Andorra at Wembley in June and Capello is happy to place his faith in the 24-year-old.
