I’ll likely watch the first 15-30 minutes, flick over if it’s crap. It’s only a friendly but I’ll give it a chance.

This is a fitting tribute to both Nobby and Tony. Shame there's no fans to witness it.

Earlier today, football said goodbye to an England legend as the funeral of Nobby Stiles was held.

The 1966 World Cup winner died on 30 October aged 78.

The former Manchester United midfielder's hearse passed by Old Trafford earlier today, with fans paying their respects by leaving flowers outside the ground.

Stiles, as well as former Blackpool and England goalkeeper Tony Waiters - who died on 10 November - are due to be remembered at Wembley tonight with a minute's applause, while the players will wear black armbands.

Can’t say I’m a huge fan of Winks but this midfield looks so much more dynamic when we don’t have two players holding. James is starting to look like a real talent. Grealish just makes things happen.

The pool of players England have reminds me of when I used to have Championship manager is the early 2000’s I’d have all the good players but not a clue how to pick a good 11

Sven 2004 campaign (including qualifying) was easily the best England team ive seen since Ive been old enough to follow them ('86 World Cup) but he's another one where peoples personal opinion of him cloud their judgement of his footballing talents

They are playing well, but you have to take into account the calibre of opposition, and I don't think England's problems are in the attacking areas.

However Grealish is running the show tonight, and on this form he'll be a hard man to leave out.

Grealish can surely make the starting 11 behind the front 3 in midfield.

But as mentioned, the quality England have in attack is frightening... Grealish, Sancho, Kane, Greenwood, Rashford, Sterling and that's 6 that come to mind immediately.

Grealish should be starting every time for England. He’s got that Ronaldo at Man Utd and Bale at Spurs (First time) about him. Can drag his team to victory. Not saying this because of those 2 I mentioned above, but he’s a Real Madrid player imo.

The progress he made in the Championship is phenomenal.
