England face their second big test of November as Brazil travel to Wembley on Tuesday to face a depleted Three Lions squad.
Gareth Southgate’s hopes of seeing likely World Cup starters in action have been hit by a host of withdrawals during the international break, leaving the manager to experiment with his England team.
A young Three Lions starting XI impressed with a creditable 0-0 draw against world champions Germany on Friday night, though Southgate’s defence will be put under more pressure as the likes of Neymar and Gabriel Jesus head to Wembley.
TV and live online coverage
The match will be televised live on ITV1 and ITV1 HD, with coverage starting from 7.30pm. The channel is Free To Air in the UK or can be streamed online via ITV Hub.
Alternatively, you can follow all the build-up and action from 7pm with Standard Sport’s London Football live blog.
Gary Cahill is fit for the visit of Brazil despite missing Friday’s 0-0 draw with Germany at Wembley.
The 31-year-old reported to England duty late last week and missed the final training session ahead of the visit of the world champions, but could go back into the starting line-up on Tuesday and wear the armband.
Phil Jones is almost certain to miss out for England after limping off early on against Germany with a thigh injury.
Southgate has also called up a number of younger players to plug the gaps in his squad, with Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke – formerly of Chelsea – and Lewis Cook added to the squad. The pair join goalkeeper Angus Gunn, who was called up following Jack Butland’s withdrawal.
Brazil were captained by Willian on Friday as Japan were easily beaten 3-1 in Lille. Consequently, Philippe Coutinho could come into the team.
Alisson and Cassio shared goalkeeping duties so Ederson is expected to feature at Wembley. Casemiro and Fernandinho played the full 90 minutes so may be rested.
