    GOOD EVENING

    And welcome to the live blog for England vs Austria!

    Gareth Southgate's Three Lions play their first Euro 2020 warm-up game against Austria at the Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough.

    England kick off their Euros campaign against Croatia on June 13, and they'll be looking to avenge their 2018 World Cup semi-final loss.

    The two games against Austria and Romania will largely be used to get players fit, so it could prove valuable for Jordan Henderson who hasn't played in months.

    In terms of team news, Man Utd club captain will miss out tonight for England as he still recovers from an injury that saw him miss the Europa League final.

    Dean Henderson, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Mason Mount, Phil Foden, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling are also expected to be absent due to their participation in the Europa League and Champions League finals for their respective clubs.

    Kalvin Phillips may also be given a rest after overcoming an injury scare at the end of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

    As for Austria, former West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is going to miss the game with a thigh injury.

    New Real Madrid signing David Alaba will most likely start.

    The teamsheets will be released in half an hour, so don't go anywhere!
