The striker led the Three Lions for the first time against Scotland on Saturday, when he scored an injury time equaliser to rescue a 2-2 draw in World Cup qualifying at Hampden Park.

The final action of the 2016-17 season potentially pits Harry, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker against team-mates Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko, who are both in the France squad.

Indeed, we could see Harry and Hugo up against each other as respective captains!

England trained in Croissy-sur-Seine today (Monday) ahead of the friendly at the Stade de France (8pm).

Elsewhere, Heung-Min Son returns to World Cup qualifying action as South Korea face Qatar.

ROUND-UP

Having scored against Germany, Christian Eriksen was on target again for Denmark in a 3-1 win against Kazakstan in World Cup qualifying Group E on Saturday. Denmark are fighting it out with Montenegro for second place, level on 10 points behind leaders Poland, who are six points clear with four games remaining.

Victor Wanyama was in the Kenya team that lost 2-1 in Sierra Leone in African Cup of Nations qualifying.

On Sunday, Ben Davies played the full 90 as Wales drew 1-1 in WCQ at Group D leaders Serbia. In the same group, Kevin Wimmer was an unused substitute as Austria drew 1-1 against the Republic of Ireland. Serbia and ROI remain top with four games left, Wales and Austria both four points adrift.

Finally, like his team-mates Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters, Japhet Tanganga also tasted international success for England as the Young Lions won the U20 Toulon Tournament final on penalties against the Ivory Coast on Saturday. Japhet came off the bench in the second half.
