England vs Brazil lineups, team news

Southgate is missing a couple of key players through injury for this clash with full-back pair Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier both sidelined. 

Midfield remains the main talking point for Southgate’s Euro 2024 plans, with Kalvin Phillips omitted, there is a chance for James Maddison and Phil Foden to make their mark. Kobbie Mainoo also received his debut call-up to the squad following the 18-year-old’s performance against Liverpool for Man United in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

England predicted XI (4-3-3, right to left): Pickford (GK) — Walker, Stones, Maguire, Chilwell — Rice, Henderson, Bellingham — Foden, Kane, Rashford.

Brazil are preparing for the Copa America this summer and the Samba Boys will be looking to Real Madrid pair Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes to fire them to glory in London.

However, with Alisson and Ederson both ruled out through injury, the visitors will have to name one of their uncapped goalkeepers in the starting team.

Brazil predicted XI (4-3-3 right to left): Jardim (GK) — Couto, Bremer, Beraldo, Wendell — Guimaraes, Andre, Paqueta — Raphinha, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr.
