England: Gareth Southgate rules out ‘ridiculous’ changes for historic Scotland friendly


areth Southgate has played down the chances of a much-changed England XI for Tuesday’s friendly with Scotland, saying it would be “ridiculous” to “overly experiment” at Hampden Park.

England’s meeting with their oldest and fiercest rival – which is being played to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first international between the nations on 30 November 1872 – is their first friendly in 18 months, since the back-to-back wins over Switzerland and the Ivory Coast in March 2022.
