Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on Wembley Stadium when England and Republic of Ireland face each other in a friendly on Thursday evening. The Three Lions suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Denmark in the Nations League last month, meaning that they are eager to return to winning ways. Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Man City at the weekend, and, as a result, he is going to miss the Ireland friendly.
Danny Ings and Kalvin Phillips are injured as well, while Phil Foden returns to the squad. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Tottenham ace Harry Kane. The Boys in Green, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Finland. David McGoldrick announced his retirement from international football, with Luton Town attacker James Collins stepping up. Anyhow, regardless of which players will be deployed in Wednesday’s friendly, home win should be considered as England are eager to bounce back from the loss to Denmark.
