England vs Republic of Ireland live stream, ITV, Thursday 12 November, 8pm GMT

England are back in action on Thursday night when they host Republic of Ireland at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate's side will be looking to bounce back from last month's 1-0 loss to Denmark. That was a hugely disappointing result for England, coming as it did on the back of an impressive 2-1 victory over Belgium. A failure to beat the Danes has left England's fate in the Nations League out of their hands: Belgium currently lead Group A2 by two points and are now in pole position to qualify for the Finals. Victory over Ireland would put England in a positive frame of mind ahead of their final two Nations League games in the coming days.

Stephen Kenny has endured a difficult start to life as Ireland boss and will be looking for his maiden win as manager of the senior side on Thursday. Kenny took over from Mick McCarthy in August and has had little success with implementing a more expansive style of play up to now. Indeed, Ireland have failed to score in each of their last four matches, a run which has included a penalty shoot-out loss to Slovakia, a scoreless stalemate with Wales and two 1-0 defeats by Finland.

Southgate will be without Trent Alexander-Arnold after the Liverpool man injured his calf in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Sunday. Kyle Walker is back in the squad and could replace him, while Jack Grealish and Declan Rice are in contention to play against the nation they represented at youth level and, in Rice's case, three times for the senior side. There is no room in the squad for Ross Barkley, John Stones or James Maddison, while Mason Greenwood has not yet been recalled.

Celtic defender Shane Duffy is the only member of Kenny's squad who does not ply his trade in England. Jeff Hendrick, Seamus Coleman and James McClean bring experience to the ranks, but there have also been call-ups for the 20-year-old Aaron Connolly and the 19-year-old Adam Idah.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT and the game is being shown on ITV in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch an England vs Republic of Ireland live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jamie Vardy goal. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
