England vs Australia team news
The Three Lions are without Bukayo Saka after he withdrew from the international period at the start of the week, having undergone assessments on his leg injury at St. George’s Park.
Southgate is expected to experiment with opportunities for his fringe players in this friendly, given the Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy is just around the corner.
Levi Colwill and Eddie Nketiah will hope to make their debuts while there could be minutes for Aaron Ramsdale, Fikayo Tomori, Jarrod Bowen and Ollie Watkins.
For the Socceroos, Jackson Irvine is fit after an ankle injury and Hibernian defender Lewis Miller is one of three who could earn a debut.
England vs Australia prediction
The Three Lions may well experiment with their line-up in this friendly but those given a runout will be eager to impress and should still have a sizeable edge on their opponents in terms of quality.
England to win, 3-0.
