Play them. We might not win but we’re not getting hammered 5-0/6-0 by these jokers. I’m not afraid of them and I would say that our lads would relish this match against England. It’s what we need IMO. 
You don't think England could hammer you? We've slaughtered teams on your level such as Czech Republic Bulgaria Montenegro.  If it was at Wembley it would probably be a 4 or 5-0 scoreline 
Probably - if you play Messrs Maguire and Pickford. LOLWink

Going by the match against Denmark England wont be hammering anyone 5 or 6 nil, woefull, started with 6 defenders on the pitch.

Games won 2 (1949 and 1988Thumbs Up)
 
Games Lost 5 (Last being 1985 as above, a Friendly)
 
Games Drawn 9 (Our last 6 matches against them drawn)
 
I think the FW was at the 1978 encounter? a European game that ended in a one all draw.
 
the International Friendly in 1995 that was abandoned when we were 1-0 up was declared a 0-0 draw on the record books afaik

In a training game,  0-0 is the most probable scoreline. They should beat us comfortably in a proper match.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

As I said in the Kenny thread in their most recent game at home to Denmark they played five defenders and two holding midfielders - I would imagine due to the lack of faith Southgate has in his defence and goalkeeper. They would likely beat us but I really don't think it would be any kind of hammering.
 
In any event it's a fixture we could do without at the moment. Be better off playing a team around or below our level at home.

absolutely ridiculous, could have a very negative effect on our World Cup seeding. Plus, no need whatsoever for a friendly during a pandemic.

Stupidity. What's the point in this? Money obviously but it would have been more beneficial to be in pot 2.

Absolutely bonkers decsion with the world Cup draw on the horizon.

Would presume the FA offered them a decent pay day for it and its handy for Cardiff a few days later but surely they're aware of the potential impact on rankings

Because of rankings we still have to play a match that day, we can't just sit it out.
But out of all teams, especially when we're trying to pick up ranking points.

This could end up 4 or 5-0 too.  It's now much more important than the Wales game.  Rice and Grealish on the teamsheet to round off a great 2020.
