Football Today, March 29, 2022: England and Wales play in a lively evening of international football

Tuesday marks another busy night of international football with friendlies and World Cup qualifiers on the menu.

England host Ivory Coast at Wembley for the first time ever as Wales take on the Czech Republic and Scotland take on Austria.

Go out to impress

After working hard against Switzerland last Saturday, Gareth Southgate will want to see his England team put in a more impressive performance tonight.

Changes are expected for the Three Lions and Crystal Palace full-back Tyrick Mitchell, who made his debut on the bench against the Swiss, could be in contention for a first start.

It’s been quite a build-up for the 22-year-old, who has never even had an eye for his country at youth level.

While Mitchell and club-mate Marc Guehi are with England for the first time, Eagles loanee Conor Gallagher already looks at home at the highest level.

After impressing in his two international appearances so far, the energetic midfielder will be hoping to play again tonight.

There’s also a Palace ace looking to steal the show in the opposition ranks, with all eyes on Wilfried Zaha.

It’s sure to be a night of mixed emotions for the tricky 29-year-old winger, who won two caps for England as a youngster before switching allegiance to the country of his birth.

Elsewhere, Wales are also set to sound the changes when the Czech Republic travel to the Cardiff City Stadium for a friendly.
