The fixture will also mark the first appearance on the home soil after winning the fourth place at the World Cup for the English squad.

Can Gareth Southgate build on the success from Russia and guide this side to new heights and the La Furia Roja will serve as a perfect test at this stage for the English team ?

Spain, on the other side, are in for a start of the new era under the former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

They went through a real nightmare this summer when the head coach Julen Lopetegui was dismissed just days before team’s maiden match at the competition.

The interim solution, Fernando Hierro, could not guide the star-packed side further than the last 16 round where they were defeated by host nation after penalties.

England vs Spain: Head-to-head

England have a positive head to head record with Spain thanks to the period of dominance from 1960 to 1980.

The Three Lions won 13, drew 3 and lost 9 of 25 encounters with Spain.

La Furia Roja clawed their way back from being two goals down to save a draw in their previous visit to Wembley back in November 2016 (friendly).

England vs Spain: Prediction

Enrique’s reign in Spain began with Jordi Alba controversy as Barcelona’s left-back was not called-up because of the earlier misunderstandings he had with the former Blaugrana manager and captain.

Spain will be handicapped without striker Diego Costa who is out due to “personal reasons” and team’s chemistry generally seems to be at a fairly low level ahead of the trip to London.

The Three Lions will be highly motivated to shine in front of the home crowd after summer’s success at the biggest stage and we can hardly see them losing to struggling Spain here. The home win or draw double chance is paid at 1/2 odd.

La Furia Roja conceded three goals to Portugal and two to Morocco at the World Cup and we’d not be surprised to see Harry Kane on the scoreline here. You can back the Spurs’ forward to score anytime at 6/5 odd.

England vs Spain: Bet Tips

England or Draw Double Chance @ 1.50 (1/2)

Harry Kane to score anytime @ 2.20 (6/5).
