England ramp up their preparations for Euro 2020 on Wednesday night as they take on Austria in the first of two tournament warm-up friendlies.
Gareth Southgate is set to announce his 26-man squad today, having unveiled an extended 33-man provisional list last week, delaying his official decision by seven days due to a number of injury concerns and with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all in European finals.
The training camp in Middlesbrough began over the weekend, and England must now quickly get up to speed, with their Championship opener against Croatia on June 13 less than two weeks away.
Southgate will get a good chance to look at his squad ahead of the all-important opener, with another friendly against Romania on Sunday to follow.

Of course, it’s just a friendly, but England’s fixture against Austria will provide the clearest indication to date as to the formation and players Southgate will turn to come June 13.
Southgate will have already reduced his squad from 33 to 26, meaning the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, James Ward-Prose and Bukayo Saka will have already learned of their fates.
Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood has pulled out with injury, while Sportsmail understands Jesse Lingard will not be included in Southgate’s squad.
Additionally, while Jordan Henderson, Harry Maguire and Kalvin Phillips have all been named in the provisional squad, they may not be fit enough to feature on Wednesday.
As for Austria, former West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic will miss out, having suffered a thigh injury while playing for Shanghai Port in May.
Captain Julian Baumgartlinger is expected to be fit, but there are question marks over both Karim Onisiwo and Stefan Ilsanker.
