Superstars Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Raheem Sterling are all expected to be in the England squad that will face the Caltex Socceroos later this month.
England boss Roy Hodgson will name his squad on Monday for the Three Lions’ three pre-Euro 2016 friendlies against Turkey, Australia and Portugal.
The final round of the English Premier League will be played this weekend, with Hodgson waiting to assess the players’ fitness after those matches before finalising his squad for the friendly clashes.
But unless there are any serious injuries sustained, it should be a full-strength England outfit which greets the Socceroos at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on May 28 (AEST).
The likes of Kane, Vardy, Dele Alli and Adam Lallana have been in superb form for their clubs and will pose a huge challenge for Ange Postecoglou’s squad.
Hodgson has no shortage of options in attack with Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge injury-free and firing, while giant Andy Carroll could also be involved after a good run with West Ham.
Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson is nearing a return to full fitness while Ross Barkley, Jack Wilkshere, John Stones and Gary Cahill should also be in contention to face the Aussies.
But England also have a few injury problems with Danny Welbeck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Luke Shaw all expected to miss the Euros in France.
The Socceroos announced their 23-man squad for the clash on Wednesday with four new faces, including Stefan Mauk, Jamie Maclaren, Milos Degenek and Brad Inman.
