After a poor display on Friday against Algeria it was certain Capello would make changes. He has also dropped Jamie Carragher to the bench in favour of West Ham defender Matthew Upson.
David James keeps his place in the starting eleven after suffering no mishaps in Friday's game along with Wayne Rooney whose out burst after the Algeria game offended many England fans.
Milner comes into the squad to replace Aaron Lennon and slots in the midfield with Gerrard, Lampard and Gareth Barry.
Capello also keeps Terry in his defence along with Ashley Cole and Glen Johnson who have featured in all of the previous group games.
