Is England vs Iceland on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Nations League fixture


England are hosting Iceland tonight in a Nations League match which is effectively a friendly following their respective disappointing campaigns.

England are third in Group A2 and have no chance of qualifying for the semi-finals this time, where they lost to the Netherlands last year. 

Iceland meanwhile are bottom of the group having failed to pick up a single point so far, and will be relegated to League B next time. 

It means Southgate can use the game to rotate his tired squad which has several injuries, with Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson now sent home to recover. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

  • Grealish offers clarity on curious night as England lose to Belgium
  • Five things we learned from England’s defeat by Belgium
  • Predicting England’s Euros squad – who goes, who misses out?
  • All international fixtures taking place this week 

When is it?

The group-stage match will kick off at 7.45pm BST on Wednesday evening.

The fixture will take place at Wembley Stadium in London, despite suggestions that an alternative venue would be used due to coronavirus guidelines around travel in Europe.

Is it on TV in the UK?

The game will air live on Sky Sports main event, and subscribers can also stream it live on the Sky Go app and Sky Sports website.

What is the team news?

Ben Chilwell was forced off with a back issue in the first half of England’s defeat by Belgium and is unlikely to feature here. Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling have both been sent home with injuries.

For Iceland, Hordur Magnusson is suspended, while Ragnar Sigurdsson, Alfred Finnbogason, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are set to be absent here as Erik Hamren takes charge of the team one last time.

Predicted line-ups

England: Pope; Walker, Keane, Mings; Maitland-Niles, Rice, Winks, Saka; Sancho, Foden; Calvert-Lewin

Iceland: Runarsson; Sampsted, Ingason, Hermansson; Saevarsson, Baldursson, Bjarnason, Johannesson, Skulason; Gudjohnsen, Sigthorsson

Odds

England: 1/6

Draw: 11/2

Iceland: 16/1

Prediction

No matter which combination of players Southgate picks, they should have too much for an Iceland side that have lost all five of their Nations League games this season with a goal difference of -10. England 2-0 Iceland.
