The England National team will be looking to make it two wins from two this afternoon following Saturday’s 3-1 victory at the FAI headquarters.

Three goals courtesy of Rhyce Ramsden, Michael Masters and TJ Yates provided all three points for Scott Rogers’ side on Saturday, and after the game, he said: “That’s the type of performance we were after.

“Particularly in the second half, I thought we were outstanding and reduced Ireland to very few opportunities.”

However, all eyes turn to today’s head-to-head and despite Rogers expecting Ireland to change their style, he says his side is best prepared for whatever is thrown their way.

“We’ve done a lot of work since January to combat different types of formations and styles of play. We’ll concentrate on what we do well,” Rogers said.

“They may throw things in that are a little different, but we’re prepared for that.”

As well as getting his name on the scoresheet on Saturday, Ramsden had a hand in each of the goals to follow and will be hoping he can continue his form.

Rhyce and Jamie Tregaskiss on either flank are full of flare and creativity and it’s really exciting when they’ve got the ball,” said Rogers.
