England and Wales meet in an international friendly at Wembley on Thursday. England have won their last five heads to heads against their neighbours, can this tough-to-beat Wales side end that run?

England Form


England were lacklustre in two UEFA Nations League matches played last month. A late Raheem Sterling penalty was needed to earn 10-man England a 1-0 win over Iceland, who saw Birkir Bjarnason miss an injury-time spot kick. 

Kyle Walker was sent off in that game and missed a 0-0 draw with Denmark three days later. That result brought a four-game winning run to an end.

England had been very impressive as they signed off 2019 with six wins in seven games to top Group A and qualify for the European Championships. Those wins includes comprehensive victories over Bulgaria (6-0), Montenegro (7-0) and Kosovo (4-0). 

England Team News


Raheem Sterling will miss the game against Wales and subsequent UEFA Nations League qualifiers against Belgium and Denmark through injury.

England's preparations were also thrown into doubt after Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho's arrival into the camp was delayed due to a potential breach of coronavirus protocol.

Abraham and Chilwell's Chelsea team-mate Reece James has been added to a squad featuring first-time call-ups Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Harvey Barnes and Bukayo Saka.

Harry Magurie returns after missing the last set of internationals, but Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood are left out after breaking coronavirus rules and being sent home from Iceland last month.

England Squad


Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope, Dean Henderson

Defenders: Kyle Walker, Eric Dier, Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Michael Keane, Joe Gomez, Tyrone Mings, Conor Coady, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Reece James, Bukayo Saka

Midfielders: Jordan Henderson, Declan Rice, Mason Mount, Harry Winks, James Ward-Prowse, Kalvin Phillips

Wales Form


Wales have won their last four games and are unbeaten in their last eight internationals under Ryan Giggs following two victories to open their UEFA Nations League campaign.

A second-half goal from Kiefer Moore earned Wales a 1-0 win over Finland in Helsinki in their opening game of the campaign. A goal four minutes into added time from Neco Williams sealed a 1-0 win over Bulgaria three days later.

In the unbeaten run, Wales have also beaten Azerbaijan twice, Hungary and Belarus, and drew with Slovakia and Croatia.

Wales Team News


Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out of the game against England due to coronavirus protocols, although he could yet return for Wales' games against Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria.

Hal Robson-Kanu is out of all three matches due to a wrist injury. Rhys Norrington-Davies and Brennan Johnson could be in line for their first international caps.

England vs Wales Head to Head


England have won the last five head to heads against neighbours Wales, who last won in 1984 in a Home Championships match. 

England were 2-1 winners in the most recent clash at Euro 2016 with a Daniel Sturridge injury-time winner needed. 

Gareth Bale had opened the scoring for Wales late in the first-half before Jamie Vardy levelled shortly after the break at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens.

After the disruption to preparations, England look too short in the match betting. A draw looks a value option with Wales having been hard to beat under Ryan Giggs.
