England host Republic of Ireland in an international friendly at Wembley on Thursday. The sides have drawn in the last six meetings, but England will see this as a chance to restore confidence ahead of crucial UEFA Nations League matches.

England Form


England suffered a first defeat at Wembley in their last 10 games when going down 1-0 to Denmark in a the UEFA Nations League last month. Christian Eriksen's penalty proved to be the difference between the sides.

An experimental England side had defeated Wales 3-0 in a friendly, before they then got the better of Belgium in the UEFA Nations League. Gareth Southgate's side came out 2-1 winners against Belgium thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount.

Earlier in the Nations League campaign, a late Raheem Sterling penalty earned a 1-0 win over Iceland before England were held 0-0 in Denmark. 

England Team News


England have recalled Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden into the squad and his club-mate Reheem Sterling is back in the fold after injury.    

Southampton striker Danny Ings and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips are out injured, while Leicester's Harvey Barnes is left out from the last squad. 

The 17-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has been called up for the first time as a replacement after Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold and Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse withdrew.

Harry Maguire and Reece James are expected to play against Ireland before serving suspensions for the upcoming UEFA Nations League matches against Belgium and Iceland. Both were red-carded against Denmark.

Republic of Ireland Form


Republic of Ireland's 1-0 defeat to Finland in Helsinki in the UEFA Nations League means Stephen Kenny's side haven't score a goal in the last four matches.

Another 0-0 draw followed at home to Wales days later, before the narrow defeat to Finland in their most recent international.
