Matt Targett misses out with a minor injury, but James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond and Jack Stephens could all feature for Aidy Boothroyd’s side when they face Kazakhstan at 4pm BST.

Then at 7.45pm BST, Shane Long and Dušan Tadić are both in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying action, as Republic of Ireland welcome Georgia and Serbia head to Moldova.
