Match preview

International Friendly, England will play against with Romania at home. Wednesday's clash with Austria was far from a classic, but Bukayo Saka's second-half strike ensured that England would pick up another victory, making it five in a row in all competitions. Gareth Southgate's preparations for Euro 2020 have been far from ideal, as a number of his players were involved in the Europa League and Champions League finals, while injuries in the camp mean that it is unclear what side will take to the field against Croatia on June 13. Sunday's friendly with Romania will hand Southgate another chance to have a look at a number of players, and it is vital that the Three Lions make a strong start to their Euro 2020 campaign. That said, it would, in theory, be better for England to finish second or third in Group D, as topping a section which also includes Scotland and Czech Republic would most likely see them face France, Portugal or Germany in the last-16 stage of the competition. The Three Lions have been placed among the favourites for this summer's European Championships, but they have not progressed past the quarter-finals of the competition since 1996.

Romania, though, will not be present at Euro 2020, having lost to Iceland in the playoffs, but they have previously made a positive impression in the European Championships. Indeed, the Tricolours reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2000 and also competed in the finals of Euro 1996, Euro 2008 and Euro 2016, being eliminated in the group stages on all three occasions. Romania have not made the best of starts to their qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup, though, picking up just three points from three matches to occupy fourth spot in Group J. Mirel Radoi's side will also enter this match off the back of three straight defeats, including a 2-1 loss to Georgia in a friendly on Wednesday evening. Romania will be taking on England for the 12th time this weekend, and they are actually unbeaten in their last seven fixtures with the Three Lions, winning the last two at the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.


England possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Coady, Shaw; Bellingham, Rice; Sancho, Mount, Sterling; Calvert-Lewin

Romania possible starting lineup:
Nita; Sorescu, Chiriches, Nedelcearu, Camora; Stanciu, Marin; Hagi, Cicaldau, Maxim; Keseru
