England vs Wales live stream: How to watch friendly online and on TV tonight


England host Wales tonight in a friendly ahead of both sides’ Nations League fixtures later this week.

The game, serving as a sort of warm-up for England’s clashes against Belgium on Sunday and Denmark on Wednesday, and Wales’ games against the Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria on the same days, marks the first meeting between the nations since Euro 2016.

At that tournament, England emerged 2-1 winners in the group stage, several months before Gareth Southgate became the Three Lions’ head coach.

Here’s everything you need to know about this evening’s game:

When is it?

The match kicks off at Wembley Stadium at 8pm BST tonight.

It will be played behind closed doors.

How can I watch it?

The game will air live on ITV, and viewers can stream it online on ITV Hub.

What is the team news?

Jadon Sancho, Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell will miss the match, having broken coronavirus guidelines. Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have also been left out after similarly breaking Covid-19 rules last month. Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been recalled.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Bukayo Saka, Harvey Barnes and Reece James have all been called up for the first time, while Raheem Sterling has withdrawn due to a hamstring injury.

Gareth Bale has been left out of Ryan Giggs’ Wales squad due to a lack of fitness, and Aaron Ramsey has had to withdraw due to Juventus’ coronavirus guidelines.

Prediction

Wales are always motivated for this fixture and are in better form than Gareth Southgate’s men, but England have the greater quality and squad depth. England should get the win, but don’t be surprised if they’re forced to work harder for it than they’d like in this friendly. England 2-1.
