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

England's Euro 2024 preparations resume on Saturday evening as they entertain Brazil in an international friendly at Wembley Stadium.

Gareth Southgate's side have just four more matches before the European Championship in Germany this summer, a tournament which they are currently favourites to win.

England have enjoyed a number of memorable matches with Brazil over the years and with a fresh look to England's squad, Saturday's game provides several players with the opportunity to book their place on the plane this summer.

England have only won one of the last 11 meetings between the two sides, with Brazil winning four of the meetings in that time.

The last victory for England came in February 2013 when the two teams met for the Football Association's 150-year celebration match. Roy Hodgson was England's manager that night, as goals from Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard helped the Three Lions to a 2-1 victory.

In 26 previous games between England and Brazil, Saturday's hosts have only triumphed on four occasions.

England v Brazil team news

England team news

Skipper Harry Kane will miss Saturday's clash with Brazil through injury, meaning Ivan Toney and Ollie Watkins will battle it out to lead the line against the South Americans.

Meanwhile, Bukayo Saka withdrew from England's squad on Thursday afternoon, whilst Cole Palmer and Jordan Henderson are both expected to miss out.

Kobbie Mainoo could feature from the bench after receiving his first senior call up, while the likes of Jarrad Branthwaite and Anthony Gordon could get game time as they look to force their way into Southgate's plans for the summer.

Joe Gomez returns to the international set-up and may be used as a makeshift left-back against Brazil or Belgium if Ben Chilwell is unable to complete 90 minutes twice in the space of a few days.

The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jack Grealish, Kieran Trippier and Marc Guehi were not included in the squad due to injury.

Brazil team news

Brazil are without a number of familiar faces for the trip to Wembley including Premier League 'keepers Alisson and Ederson, Arsenal winger Gabriel Martinelli, Al Hilal striker Neymar and PSG defender Marquinhos.

Richarlison, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior provide a formidable three-pronged attack, however, with rising star Endrick set to feature from the bench.

Brazil will have a debutant in goal as goalkeepers Leo Jardim, Bento and Rafael are all currently uncapped.
