England tonight kick off their Euro 2020 preparations with the first of two warm-up friendlies in the North East as the Three Lions host Austria.

With the European Championships beginning on June 11 following a draining season, Gareth Southgate must quickly get his squad up to speed as they bid for glory this summer.

England are among the favourites to win the tournament given the wealth of attacking talent manager Southgate has at his disposal, but the Three Lions must build on their thrilling 2018 World Cup semi-final run in Russia.

Date, kick-off time and venue

England vs Austria is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

The match will be held at Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough.

Fellow striker Karim Onisiwo might also miss out after pulling out of Sunday's training with knee pain, while Stefan Ilsanker missed the session because of illness - but captain Julian Baumgartlinger was back in training.
