Mark Pougatch introduces live coverage of England's friendly against Portugal live from Wembley.
 
It's Roy Hodgson's last chance to experiment before Euro 2016 begins as England play their final warm-up game. With the first match against Russia just nine days away, the England manager will be looking to field a strong side and hoping he avoids any last-minute injury scares. 
 
The likes of skipper Wayne Rooney and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be keen for some game time after their respective injury problems, while Golden Boot winner Harry Kane and Premier League winner Jamie Vardy will be sharpening their sights for their first senior international tournaments representing the Three Lions.
 
Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal will provide a decent test as they build up to their first match at the Euros against debutants Iceland. 
 
Mark is joined in the studio by Lee Dixon and Ian Wright for live coverage with commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle, and Gabriel Clarke the pitchside reporter.
