On Friday, England face the Netherlands in Amsterdam as the build up to this summer’s World Cup in Russia continues.

In Nick Pope, Alfie Mawson, James Tarkowski and Lewis Cook, Gareth Southgate has named four uncapped players for the games in the Amsterdam ArenA and against Italy.

With six players aged 23 or under, the squad has a youthful feel about it and there are plenty of spaces up for grabs before the former international defender has to pick his 23-man squad by June 4.

This will eighth friendly between these two sides since Euro 96, when they met in the final group game at Wembley.

England have failed to beat the Dutch since that sunny day in London, but are unbeaten against the Oranje in this country since 1993.

It may have been 22 years ago, but England fans will never forget the scenes as the Three Lions destroyed the Netherlands 4-1 on June 18.

Patrick Kluivert’s late consolation goal also helped eliminate Scotland from the group stage, making it a perfect day for the hosts.

You’ll remember the score and perhaps who found the net that day, but take our quiz and prove you can name the starting XI and the nine players on the bench for Terry Veneables’ side.
