England host Ireland in friendly action tonight ahead of Nations League action this weekend as Gareth Southgate’s men look to get back to winning ways ahead of the visit to Belgium in the Nations League.
The build-up has been dominated by a potential serious injury to Liverpool defender Joe Gomez, who has undergone surgery to repair a tendon in his knee, and the resignation of Greg Clarke as chairman of the FA.
But matters on the field will now take precedence for Southgate with England not having beaten Ireland in 35 years since Trevor Steven and Gary Lineker netted in a 2-1 win for a Bobby Robson-led side in March 1985 at Wembley.
