After naming a provisional squad of 33 players, England boss Gareth Southgate will use the upcoming friendlies against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iceland to assess his options before naming the final 26-man squad on June 8. The first chance to impress the manager comes against a side that has lost each of their past four games and failed to qualify for the Euros. 

While Sergej Barbarez‘s side may have failed to secure a first-ever appearance at the European Championships, there is plenty of talent in the squad. Former Man City striker Edin Dzeko is the country’s record scorer with 65 goals, while playmaker Miralem Pjanic has the ability to unlock any defence. 

However, England will be heavy favourites to secure a first win in four games even if Southgate decides to experiment with his side. The 53-year-old may well decide to look at his options in attack so the likes of Ivan Toney, Jarrod Bowen, Eberechi Eze and Anthony Gordon may well feature. Palace youngster Adam Wharton will also hope to catch the eye if the opportunity arises. 

Team news: 

Southgate has rung the changes for this friendly and Cole Palmer and Eberechi Eze will both start for the Three Lions for the first time. Trent Alexander-Arnold looks as though he will play in midfield and Ollie Watkins will lead the line. 

England XI: Pickford, Trippier, Konsa, Gallagher, Dunk, Guehi, Palmer, Alexander-Arnold, Watkins, Eze, Bowen.

Bosnia & Herzegovina XI: Vasilj; Ahmedhodzic, Bicakcic, Katic; Gazibegovic, Saric, Tahirovic, Radeljic; Hajradinovic; Demirovic, Gigovic.
