The headline has been an absentee, after Manchester United sensation Kobie Mainoo was called up to the senior squad for their friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.

Lee Carsley has given debut call ups to Luton defender Teden Mengi and midfielders Alex Scott of AFC Bournemouth, Chelsea’s Carney Chukwuemeka and Leeds United’s Archie Gray. All have featured in the England younger age set ups.

In-form Liverpool defender, Jarrell Quansah and Manchester City’s Rico Lewis have also been selected.

England to win and both teams to score @ 2/1

England are heavy favourites to win – but they have conceded goals in the past. And their loss against Ukraine in October may give Azerbaijan a glimmer of hope to score. In addition, Azerbaijan put three goals past Luxembourg earlier in qualifying, showing that there is a slim goal threat.
