As well as Iceland, England have been drawn in League A Group 1 along with Belgium and Denmark, with the latter of those outfits set to face the Three Lions next week.

England, of course, came 3rd in the inaugural Nations League competition last time out and will no doubt be keen to achieve a similar feat in the current tournament.

Last time England met Iceland, though, they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Euro 2016.

Foden to feature?

Ahead of what should prove a decent test for Southgate and co. some potential team news has come to light.

Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden would, of course, earn his first senior England call-up for these two upcoming ties after a stellar end to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

And now, vs Iceland, it looks as though Foden could well be handed his first senior cap.

According to the Telegraph, the 20-year-old is ‘expected’ to make his debut on Saturday.

This comes with Jordan Henderson, Ross Barkley and Harry Winks, all regulars in England’s midfield, currently unavailable.

And this, in turn, looks to have paved the way for Foden to be handed a chance to impress.
