Joe Hart and Shaun Wright-Phillips were among the starters for England in their final warm-up match against Platinum Stars at the Moruleng Stadium, near Rustenberg.
Fabio Capello opted for Hart ahead of Rob Green in goal, with David James said to be suffering from a slight injury.
Ledley King was selected alongside John Terry in central defence, with Wright-Phillips preferred to Aaron Lennon on the right flank.
Joe Cole was given another chance to impress on the left of midfield, with newly-appointed captain Steven Gerrard partnered by vice-captain Frank Lampard in the middle.
With Wayne Rooney left out of the starting line-up, Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe were charged with leading the attack.
