England’s international friendly against Holland at Wembley Stadium will be screened live in the Sandy Pate Sports Bar tonight (8pm kick-off).After an impressive comeback by Roy Hodgson’s men against a strong Germany side last Saturday to win 3-2, the nation is growing in optimism ahead of the European Championships in the summer, staged in France.
And the game against the Dutch will provide the perfect platform for the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater to improve their growing reputations and provide their boss with a selection headache ahead of the competition starting in June.
The Netherlands present an interesting challenge for England with superb talent in their squad, including Stoke City’s Ibrahim Afellay and Schalke forward Klaas Jan Huntelaar, although the Three Lions will be buoyed following their surprising result in Berlin on Saturday.
Drinks will also be served throughout the evening until 11pm, while food will be available until 8pm, so make sure you get to the bar in plenty of time to get your order in, grab your seats and watch the action.
Parking is FREE at One Call Stadium at the back of the Ian Greaves Stand, and there are always plenty of spaces.
