England stars are set to clash against Belgium in the second half of their Euro 2024 warm-up friendly on Tuesday with nameless shirts.

National Daily gathered that the Three Lions are involved in a campaign to raise awareness around dementia. This is following a partnership between Alzheimer’s Society and the Football Association.
