Preview – International Football: England v Spain

Wembley Stadium

Having beaten Scotland on Friday, the England team can relax a bit for latest match… in theory anyway.

Yes, tonight’s match is a friendly, but they often say that there is no such thing as a friendly. One reason why there might be a bit of tension is that England are facing the 2010 World Cup champions. Then there is the fact that this is Gareth Southgate’s last match as interim boss. On top of this, some big players look as if they are not playing in order for some experimentation with fresh faces. Wayne Rooney is not in the starting line-up, with Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson being captain.

International Football: England v Spain is on ITV at 19.30 (kick-off 19.45).
