England will play two friendly games as part of their final preparations for this summer’s Euro 2024, with the matches in early June their last on home soil before they travel to Germany.

England squad for Euro 2024 warm-up matches

The England team for these two friendlies will come from a Euros ‘training squad’ that Southgate announces today, two days after the end of the Premier League season.

When do the Euros start?

Euro 2024 starts on Friday, June 14, with hosts Germany playing Scotland. England play their first match two days later, on the Sunday, against Serbia. The full list of England’s Euro 2024 fixtures can be viewed here

Who is in the England squad for the Euros?

Southgate is still in the process of finalising his 26-man England squad. The Uefa deadline for submitting squads is June 8, meaning the two friendly games against Bosnia and Iceland are the very last chance for players to impress.

He is using a long-list of players for the matches, with Jordan Henderson, picked by Southgate earlier in the season during his unhappy spell at Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia, missing out completely.

England vs Bosnia and Herzegovina head-to-head

This will be the first senior meeting between the two teams.

England vs Iceland head-to-head

The two teams have faced off five times before, with the last coming in Nov 2020 for a behind-closed-doors Nations League match at Wembley. England won 4-0 with Declan Rice and Phil Foden (2) scoring for their country for the first time. Mason Mount got the other goal. England also won their other Nations League match two months previous, thanks to Raheem Sterling’s penalty.

Before that came one of Iceland’s most memorable results to date, beating the Three Lions 2-1 to knock them out of Euro 2016, in what was Roy Hodgson’s last match as England manager.

It was Iceland’s first and only victory over England, after the Three Lions also won 6-1 in 2004 and drew 1-1 in a 1982 friendly.

Predictions

England fans will be hoping to wave the team off to the Euros off the back of two resounding victories, and they should get them.

  • England to beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 4-0

  • England to beat Iceland 2-0
