ITV will broadcast the International friendly between England and Spain this evening.
The match takes place at Wembley Stadium, where Gareth Southgate takes charge of the fourth and final game of his short stint as England manager.
Southgate stepped up from his role as Under-21s boss to take the reins of the senior team in the wake of Sam Allardyce’s shock departure after just one match, and has been seen by many as an ideal candidate for the job full-time.
No decision has yet been taken by the FA, but the former Middlesbrough defender will be keen to impress his superiors with a good performance here against the former world champions.
The most recent contest between these nations was also a friendly encounter, and took place one year and one day ago, and on that occasion it was Spain that emerged victorious.
Second-half goals from Mario and Santi Cazorla were enough to give them a 2-0 win, which at the time was England’s first defeat in 16 matches.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on ITV, where Mark Pougatch will be joined in the studio by Ian Wright, Ryan Giggs, Lee Dixon and Aitor Karanka. Kick-off 8.00pm
Commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle. Highlights will be shown on ITV from 11.05pm
