England vs Brazil: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

England battle Brazil tonight in a marquee friendly fixture at Wembley.

Both international heavyweights are stepping up their preparations for major summer tournaments, with the Three Lions among the favourites for Euro 2024 glory in Germany and the Selecao with their eyes firmly fixed on the latest Copa America in the United States.


England are unbeaten since being knocked out of the World Cup quarter-finals by France in Qatar in 2022 but failed to hit top gear in the last round of internationals, as they rounded off Euros qualification by beating Malta 2-0 and drawing in North Macedonia.

Gareth Southgate will be focused on bigger things in this month’s games against Brazil and Belgium yet a pair of wins will lift the nation’s mood considerably ahead of a title tilt in Germany.

Brazil, playing under new coach Dorival Junior for the first time, are on a run of three consecutive defeats and are without several high-profile players as they also meet Spain in Madrid on Tuesday.

Date, kick-off time and venue

England vs Brazil is scheduled for a 7pm GMT kick-off tonight on Saturday March 23, 2024.

The match will take place at Wembley Stadium.
