While essentially a dead rubber, this Nations League clash between Group A2 also-rans England and Iceland allows both managers to blood new talent. Read on for your full guide to getting a England vs Iceland live stream in the Nations League, no matter where in the world you are right now.

Iceland's fate of relegation to League B has already been secured after losing all five of their games during this campaign, while hosts England have missed out of the  final round of matches following their 2-0 defeat away against Belgium on Sunday.

Kick-off for England vs Iceland at Wembley Stadium in London is scheduled for 7.45pm GMT local time. Full TV and streaming options are below, and you can get out to an early lead by netting a good VPN, which will let you watch you preferred Nations League live stream from anywhere in the world.

Despite their defeat on Sunday, England were much the better side for large parts of the game against the Belgians, with Jack Grealish earning universal plaudits for his performance.

But scored just three goals during the campaign, and a disappointing third place finish in the group guaranteed behind Belgium and Denmark, tonight's game could see Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate give some alternative attacking options a go.

While Harry Kane is likely to start once again up top, expect supporting roles for the less-experience trio of  Phil Foden, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Harry Winks.

While Erik Hamren's Iceland side have held their own against all three teams in the group, their results haven't earned them the points that their performances have sometimes deserved, with a late Christian Eriksen penalty for Denmark robbing them of their first point of the this year's tournament on Sunday. 

With Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Alfred Finnbogason and Johann Berg Gudmundsson all having returned to their respective clubs, expect a hugely experimental Icalancid side for this clash, which could signal goals galore for the home side.
