The England vs Iceland live stream today, Friday, June 7 represents Gareth Southgate's last chance to run the rule over his players' form and fitness before Euro 2024. You won't want to miss this Wembley contest — watch it from anywhere with a VPN, potentially for free.

The teams are in and England go with a strong XI in their final fixture before they make their way to Germany. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale gets a rare start in goal as Harry Kane, Phil Foden and Declan Rice all return, along with Kobbie Mainoo, Anthony Gordon and John Stones. Cole Palmer again starts, with Bukayo Saka and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the bench. Jude Bellingham misses out entirely as he's given extra rest after his Champions League-winning exertions for Real Madrid. 

For Iceland, Brentford goalkeeper Hakon Valdimarsson starts in a side captained by Burnley midfielder Johan Berg Gudmundsson. Arnor Ingvi Traustason, Hakon Arnar Haraldsson and Andri Gudjohnsen are also in from the off, with Mikael Anderson ploughing a lone furrow up front.

After what turned into a comfortable 3-0 defeat of Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday night, England now face their final friendly before Euro 2024 starts in earnest in a week's time, with Jack Grealish, Harry Maguire and Jarrad Branthwaite among the names cut for the 26-man squad. Jarrod Bowen, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Eberechi Eze all impressed, as did Adam Wharton in a cameo from the bench, with the composed Crystal Palace midfielder likely to get more minutes. Yet Friday should see some of the big hitters return, with Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker, Jude Bellingham and Kobbie Mainoo all excused earlier in the week. Left-back, though, remains a problem.

The Wembley friendly will be Iceland's first outing since losing their Euro 2024 playoff 2-1 to Ukraine back in March. Albert Gudmundsson scored four times in the playoffs against Israel and Ukraine – he's interesting Tottenham and Napoli this summer – but will be absent for tonight, meaning Age Hareide lacks a center-forward. Burnley midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson, his country's captain, will hope to fill that void from deep. They'll look to channel that famous Euro 2016 last 16 defeat that spelled the end of Roy Hodgson's Three Lions tenure.
