England has very little time to bask in its 3-2 comeback win over Germany.

The Three Lions are back in action Tuesday, back in London to host the Netherlands at Wembley.

Roy Hodgson is down to his third goalkeeper after Joe Hart was felled playing for Manchester City and Jack Butland broke his ankle in Saturday’s win.

That means Southampton backstop Fraser Forster will start on Tuesday, with Burnley’s Tom Heaton as the backup.

Liverpool’s James Milner and Daniel Sturridge are among the changes for England, and Milner will captain the side.

The Twitter account “Boring James Milner” has made it near impossible for us to read any Milner quotes without some amusement.
