How to watch England vs Czech Republic: Whether you’re in the UK or abroad, don’t miss a minute of the action

Gareth Southgate's team will look to build on the success of last summer's World Cup in their first Euro 2020 qualifier on Friday

Fresh from an unforgettable run to the World Cup semi-finals and a highly successful UEFA Nations League campaign, England’s football team are going back to basics in the form of their first Euro 2020 qualifier this Friday at Wembley.

Captain Harry Kane has been keen to emphasise the importance of the fixture, labelling next year’s tournament “an opportunity to play in a European Championship where quite a few games are at Wembley” – an incentive that gives his team “a real hunger to qualify”.

In terms of team news, the biggest headlines are the late call-ups of Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi, despite the latter never having started a Premier League game.

Will Southgate’s side overcome its multitude of injury problems to brush aside Czech Republic on Friday? The only way to find out will be to watch every minute. Here’s how to do just that.

When is England vs Czech Republic?

Kick off at Wembley is at 19:45 GMT on Friday 22 March.

How to watch England vs Czech Republic in the UK

If you live in the UK, you’re in luck. The game will be televised live on ITV, presented by Mark Pougatch and with punditry from Ian Wright and Lee Dixon. The show will get underway at 7pm, with post-match interviews and analysis continuing until 10pm.

Those who are getting home late on Friday will still be able to catch the official hour-long highlights show from 22:45 on the same channel.

If you don’t have access to a TV you can stream the game live via ITV Player (assuming you’ve already paid for a TV licence).

How to watch England vs Czech Republic wherever you are

If the game isn’t being shown on terrestrial TV wherever you are, you can always access ITV’s free online stream via a VPN (again, only if you’ve already paid for a UK TV license).

Our favourite VPN at the moment is NordVPN – it’s friendly, easy to use and effective. Prices start from £9.43/mth, but drop down to £4.55/mth if you’re willing to commit to an annual contract.

PureVPN is also a good option. Although it’s not the cheapest (you have to commit to a two-year contract), it’s the fastest we’ve tested by a distance, meaning your football stream shouldn’t prove too laggy. Since it’s based in Hong Kong, which doesn’t have any data-sharing arrangements with the British authorities, you can also expect a good degree of privacy.
