England v Belgium: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

England will be looking to return to winning ways on Tuesday evening as they host Belgium in an international friendly at Wembley Stadium.

Gareth Southgate's side were beaten 1-0 by Brazil on Saturday and with just three matches to play ahead of Euro 2024, he will be keen to ensure that the Three Lions bounce back immediately from an underwhelming display.

Their opponents Belgium drew 0-0 against Republic of Ireland at the weekend and they will look to prove a point with the general consensus being that their golden era is now at an end.
