With the delayed Euro 2020 tournament looming, England and Austria are looking to get in tip-top physical shape and finalize their respective starting lineups as they take to the Wembley turf in this friendly game. Don't miss a moment of the action with our England vs Austria live stream guide.

Though there's nothing on the line in today's game, it's a chance for both managers to experiment with players and formations now that Euro 2020 squads have been locked in.

England come into today's game on a four-game winning streak and will be looking to maintain that momentum into this summer's major tournament.

Having just announced his final 26-man squad yesterday, Gareth Southgate may look to bring in a few fresh faces today while the pressure is off in order to decide who starts against Croatia on June 13.

Austria meanwhile arrive at Wembley on a mixed run of form. Franco Foda's men were on the wrong end of a 4-0 scoreline in their last outing against Denmark and have won just two of their last five games.

That being said, the defeat in Vienna back in March is their only loss in the last seven games for Das Team. The Austrians will want to use their two friendly games to get back to winning ways ahead of Euro 2020.

England are among the favorites to win Euro 2020 alongside the likes of France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, and Portugal. England will face off against Croatia, the Czech Republic, and local rival Scotland in the group stage.

For Austria, this is just their third appearance in the European Championship and the team is yet to register a win in the competition. In a group consisting of the Netherlands, North Macedonia, and Ukraine, Austria will fancy their chances of going further than ever before.
