            England vs. Australia Prediction, Tips & Stats

            England face Australia in a friendly at Wembley on Friday night as they prepare to face Italy in Euro 2024 qualifying next week.

            England have all but sealed qualification for Germany next summer they're coming into this game looking to, hopefully, learn a few things about some of the fringe players in the squad.

            England have been in very good form since the World Cup as they come into this game having won five and drawn one of their six games since the 2-1 defeat to France in Qatar.

            Their most recent game saw them head to Glasgow to face Scotland at Hampden Park in a game that was expected to be a stern test against a side currently soaring atop their Euro 2024 qualifying group but England breezed through the game with a shocking level of comfort, with Gareth Southgate's men unfazed by the hostile Scottish atmosphere.

            The game followed a dour performance in a 1-1 draw against Ukraine in the game prior and the major lesson coming out of the game in Scotland was that the formation change from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1 was hugely impactful on England's performance as it allowed Jude Bellingham to push forward and operate in the areas where he is most comfortable.

            Southgate has been fairly married to 4-3-3 for a while now so whether or not he reverts back to that or sticks with Bellingham at the ten remains to be seen, but the eye test very much favours the latter.

            England have lost only one game at Wembley in the last three years and while Australia will be highly motivated for this game it should be a straightforward win for the home side.

            Australia are coming into this game in pretty good shape as they continue their journey as a nation in trying to continually improve as a footballing nation.

            After an excellent World Cup campaign they've been fairly hit and miss having won one, drawn one and lost two of their four games since Qatar, with the two losses coming away in Argentina and against an Ecuador side they'd already beaten 3-1 in a two-match friendly following many changes to the starting lineup.

            The Aussies are currently pretty short on star quality, despite having some good youngsters coming through, but they're an extremely well drilled side and are tough to beat.

            Given the historic sporting rivalry between these two nations Australia will no doubt be pushing hard for the win here but they should come up short.

            For our England vs. Australia prediction, we're going for a 3-0 win.

            It's believed that Gareth Southgate will make numerous changes to his usual England XI here with a few players hoping to be given a chance to impress.

            It feels likely that captain Harry Kane will be given a rest which opens the door for either Eddie Nketiah or Ollie Watkins to be given a start.

            Levi Colwill will also be hoping to be awarded a first for England while James Maddison should also play from the start.

            Australia Team News

            Former Brighton goalkeeper Mathew Ryan will start between the sticks for the Aussies while Massimo Luongo of Ipswich Town and Harry Souttar of Stoke City should both feature in the starting XI.
