Upson to partner Terry against Slovenia

21 June 2010 12:08
Matthew Upson will start alongside John Terry in England's Group C showdown against Slovenia on Wednesday.

The West Ham United defender replaces the suspended Jamie Carragher in the England line-up, with Ledley King still out injured.

Upson has been capped 19 times by England, including six appearances alongside Terry - all six of which have ended in England victories.

England must win at Port Elizabeth to ensure their progress to the knock-out stages of the World Cup.
