Mark Pougatch introduces live coverage of England's friendly against Turkey live from the City of Manchester Stadium.
England begin their preparation for Euro 2016 with the first of a series of three warm-up matches against a team who, in qualifying for the tournament, will play at their first major tournament in eight years.
After catching the eye this season, the likes of Jamie Vardy, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane will all be eager to put in good performances and stake a claim for their place in Roy Hodgson's starting XI in France. 
Among the potential Turkey line-up, players who will be familiar to English fans could include former Liverpool loanee Nuri Sahin and former Fulham winger Kerim Frei.
Mark is joined in the studio by Lee Dixon and Ian Wright, with commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle, and Gabriel Clarke the pitchside reporter.
