ITV will broadcast live International football this evening as England host Czech Republic in a Euro 2020 qualifier at Wembley Stadium.
Historically, the Czechs have a better record than England in this competition, having won the tournament as Czechoslovakia in 1976 and also finished as runners-up under their current guise in 1996, when hosts England achieved their best finish in the competition as semi-finalists.
In more recent years, both teams have qualified consistently, barring the Three Lions’ failure to reach Euro 2008.
However, with English football on a high following the fourth-place finish in last summer’s World Cup and qualification for the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League, Gareth Southgate’s men will be expecting nothing less than three points this evening.
The match will also be streamed live via the ITV Hub. Highlights will be shown on the same channel at 10.45pm following the ITV News at Ten.
