England vs Romania – Euro 2020 Warm-up Friendly: Team News, Kick-Off Time, TV Channel, Live Stream

0

England continue their preparations for Euro 2020 on Sunday evening as they face Romania in their final warm-up match before the tournament.

Just a day after Gareth Southgate announced his official 26-man squad for the tournament, England narrowly beat Austria 1-0 in what was perhaps a somewhat disappointing display.

Southgate missed a number of key players, including those from Manchester United, Man City and Chelsea late in their respective European finals.

However, there was a blow to Trent Alexander-Arnold, who will now miss the European Championship after a thigh injury, having fought his way back into the squad.

Southgate will now have to replace the fullback, with changes due to injuries allowed ahead of their first game against Croatia, with James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard as the main candidates.

The England boss is also sweating over the fitness of Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson, and he could look again at those in the margins on Sunday, in case further changes to his roster are needed.

As the match fast approaching, Sports post takes you through the most important information.

As mentioned, the big news for England is that Alexander-Arnold will miss Euro 2020 in its entirety after injuring his thigh against Austria.

Southgate will now have to choose his replacement, but we won’t know who that is until after the game against Romania.

Elsewhere, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Dean Henderson have now joined the squad and could be involved on Sunday, but team-mate Harry Maguire will not be fit to play.

Meanwhile, Southgate has a decision on how much playing time he will give his first-choice players, with Jack Grealish still building his fitness and a disastrous injury for Harry Kane.

England vs Romania: the odds

With England expected to reach the final stages of the European Championship, it’s no surprise that they are the overwhelming favorites to beat Romania on Sunday.

However, Romania is a bit of a bogey team for England, which they haven’t beaten since 1970.

In fact, England have not beaten Romania in the past seven encounters between the pair, drawing four and losing three! However, the last match was in 2000.

Nevertheless, the Three Lions are favored at 2/9 to prevail, while Romania is the underdog at 1/10. Meanwhile, a draw is at 5/1.
