England meet Ivory Coast in a friendly tonight as they continue their preparations for the World Cup.
It was the last time Gareth Southgate’s side played before they knew their opponents for the tournament at the end of the year, and the clash offered the Three Lions boss another chance to see some new faces.
A 2-1 win over Switzerland ensured the Three Lions started 2022 with a win, extending their unbeaten run to eight games, and they will be hoping to take it to Qatar.
Ivory Coast, who missed the African play-offs for the World Cup, pushed France all the way to Paris ahead of this friendly, but lost 2-1 after Aurelien Tchouameni’s late goal.
