England vs Australia preview

It's the penultimate international break of 2023 as Gareth Southgate's England pit their wits against rivals Australia at Wembley.

And unlike this summer's Ashes series — the Three Lions are overwhelming 3/10 favourites to clinch a dominant victory over the Socceroos.

Southgate's side enter the contest unbeaten in their last six matches since the 2-1 defeat to France at the Qatar World Cup.

England have won five during that run, scoring a colossal 19 goals and keeping three clean sheets – drawing only to Ukraine to spoil their 100% Euro 2024 qualification record.

The Three Lions will likely field their strongest available starting XI ahead of Tuesday's qualifier against Italy – but a raft of changes should take place later on.

As for the Aussies, they'll be hoping for a change in fortunes having won just once in their last five outings.

Although those encounters did include World champions Argentina twice and a tricky trip to the US for a friendly against Mexico.

England vs Australia betting tips


Yes, this is England. And yes, they are justifiably favourites to win this fixture against FIFA's 27th-ranked opponents on home soil.

But it might not be a masterclass.

Manager Gareth Southgate wants to use this contest as an opportunity to "learn some different things" about his squad ahead of Tuesday's important clash with Italy.

That could mean that we'll see the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Ollie Watkins, Eddie Nketiah and Levi Colwill in the starting XI. And a new-look side could take a while to gel.

The Aussies are expected to bring their strongest side from the off, and very rarely lose by a two-goal margin. In fact it's only happened once since 2018.

  • Our tip: Australia (+2) at Evens with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE


Australia appear to have a bit if a discipline problem at the back. The Aussies have conceded five penalties in their last 16 matches in all competitions – and three of those came in their last three outings.

England, meanwhile, have been awarded FOUR in their last six matches.

Bow to him…

Of course we'll need to see the starting XI, but Jarrod Bowen looks a good bet to get on the scoresheet on Friday.

The West Ham star, 26, has scored five goals and provided two assists in his first nine appearances of the season – while he ranks as the fifth-highest midfielder for attempts on goal in the Premier League (10th for all players including forwards).

He's just signed a lucrative new deal and he's flying high.
