England vs Republic of Ireland live on November 12: preview and broadcast information

November 11, 2020 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Three Lions will start the first of their international triple header in November by welcoming their neighbors to Wembley on Wednesday.

Match preview

England will go head to head with the Republic of Ireland ahead of the pair's respective commitments in the UEFA Nations League. The Three Lions will hope to get a face-lift with a win on Thursday having concluded the last international break on a rather disappointing note. The chance to consolidate their status as table-toppers in Group A3 of the Nations League slipped through their hands as a result of the 1-0 home defeat to Denmark. Prior to the game in which Gareth Southgate's side had both Harry Maguire and Reece James sent off, they had sealed off a remarkable 2-1 win over Belgium.

With the Red Devils now topping the group, England now face a tough task to regain first position as anything but successive wins Roberto Martinez's side and Iceland will see them fall short. But first, they will be looking to kick start another unbeaten run with the upcoming test involving the Republic of Ireland.

The Boys in Green come into the game off the back of a poor run that has lasted for over a year. Last month, their woeful run in the Nations League was compounded as they could only manage a point in the games against Finland and Wales. Stephen Kenny's men currently sit in third place on the Group B4 table and risk being relegated should Bulgaria manage at least a win in their last two games.

While a turn around is of prime essence, Ireland's recent form leaves very little room for optimism in Thursday's clash with England. They have so far failed to record a single win in each of their last six outings in all competitions, drawing three and losing the other three.

Team news

England will go into the clash with Ireland without Trent-Alexander Arnold. The Liverpool right-back did not receive a call up after picking up an ankle injury in last weekend's draw at Manchester City. Also, James Ward-Prowse and Joe Gomez will be amiss after withdrawing from the squad with injuries.

Manchester United's Marcus Rashford remains a doubt as he is still being monitored after suffering a shoulder injury. On a positive note, both Harry Maguire and Reece James will be available for selection despite being suspended for the subsequent UEFA Nations League encounter with Belgium.

For Ireland, David McGoldrick will be the notable absentee after announcing his retirement from international duty. His Sheffield United teammate Enda Stevens as well as Brighton & Hove Albion's Aaron Connolly will also be unavailable for selection after being forced to withdraw through injury.

Meanwhile, Callum Robinson has tested positive for coronavirus and, as a result, will not play any role in the game.

Predicted starting XI

  • England: Pope; Maguire, Coady, Mings; James, Winks, Rice, Saka; Grealish, Foden; Calvert-Lewin.

  • Republic of Ireland: Randolph; Christie, O'Shea, Egan, Long; Molumby, McCarthy, Browne; Horgan, Idah, Brady.
