Friday night’s international friendly at Wembley mightn’t get the blood flowing in the same way, but it’s a great chance for Gareth Southgate’s team to find some form ahead of next week’s Euro 2024 qualifier at home against Italy, which could seal top spot in the group.
England are likely to field a more experimental team against Australia with Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah and Chelsea defender Levi Colwill in line to make debuts.
“Our mindset has got to be spot on. Equally, we’ve still got a bit of work to do to qualify for a European Championship,” Southgate says. “We have good players and we need to give people opportunities to show what they can do.”
