England made hard work of their last game, squeezing past Turkey as they get in shape for the European Championships in France in the summer. They won 2-1 thanks to a winning goal from Leicester City hero Jamie Vardy, 29, who will be chomping on the bit for another start.
But seeing this is a game where a full squad needs to be utilized, so there are no new fresh injury concerns, expect England coach Roy Hodgson to shuffle his pack and give some other players a run out to see what they can offer. With talent in reserve like Andros Townsend and Manchester United teenage sensation Marcus Rashford, the future looks bright for this English team.
With the Aussies expected to put up a fight, and England’s defense creaking when put under the slightest bit of pressure when they previously faced off against the Turks, it wouldn’t be a surprise if this was a score draw, maybe 2-2.
