The last preparatory game for the Three Lions before they switch their full focus to the European championship. The Three Lions will look to get players fit and shake things up, since players have been withdrawn through injury. The Romanians are just looking for a fitness test.
The England team is on an amazing streak, having won 8 in their last 10 in all competitions, and are considered as one of the favorites for this year’s continental tournament. Head Coach Gareth Southgate has a preferred 11 in mind, and this game can be to either solidify it, or try out contingency plans - something pundits have been calling for since injuries at this stage of the season can spell ruing for any team’s ambitions.
Romania’s team is just after another game, in which young, up-and-coming talent will get the chance to develop and show the world what they can do. Coach Mirel Radoi will hope his team can cause an upset, and boost their own morale that way. The Romanian team have been on a dreadful run of form - losing 6, drawing 1, and winning just 3 in their last 10 in all competitions. Can a turn of fortunes here be on the cards?
The teams and their rosters will be announced in due time, as both camps are tight-lipped regarding injuries, so it’ll be touch-and-go up until kick-off for which players will make it on the field, and which won’t.
