England vs Austria begins at 12 p.m PT / 3 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. BST on Wednesday, June. 2. In the UK, it's live on ITV 1 and can be streamed via the ITV Hub. 

The England vs Austria live stream is nearly upon us, with both squads stepping up their preparations for Euro 2020 with a friendly at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium.

The game comes just a day after manager Gareth Southgate whittled down his initial 33-man squad to 26. The likes of James Ward-Prowse, Jesse Lingard and Ollie Watkins are among those who won't be present for the tournament, which starts on Friday, June 11. 

Crucially, England won't be at full strength for tonight’s game against Austria, due to players from the Manchester City and Chelsea squads not yet linking up with the Three Lions following Saturday’s Champions League final.

And, of course, while Southgate has trimmed the provisional squad down to his final team, it certainly doesn't mean he's decided on the first-choice XI for the tournament itself. 

The Euros are now fast approaching, with England's opener coming against Croatia on June 13 and Austria facing North Macedonia that same day, so both teams will want to make sure they're hitting competition pace beforehand.

It promises to be an intriguing game — so read on to find out how to watch the England vs Austria live stream tonight.
