19:10 GMT: That's going to bring an end to our live commentary from Sunday's friendly matches. Thanks very much for joining us.

19:08 GMT: Full-time in Manchester, where England hang on to beat Turkey 2-1 in their friendly! Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy score for the Three Lions, with Hakan Calhanoglu netting for Turkey.

19:07 GMT: In the third minute of stoppage time, Olcay Sahin looked to have an equaliser in his sights, only for Hart to make an incredible save to preserve England's 2-1 lead.

19:06 GMT:

19.01 GMT:

18:56 GMT: GOAL for England! Vardy puts the Three Lions back out front as they lead Turkey 2-1! The Leicester City star has now scored in three straight matches for England!

18:53 GMT: Full-time in Bayamon, where the U.S. defeat Puerto Rico 3-1 in a friendly. Tim Ream, Bobby Wood and Paul Arriola the goal scorers for the Yanks, with Luis Betancur scoring for Puerto Rico.

18:50 GMT: Three minutes of added time in Bayamon as the U.S. lead Puerto Rico 3-1.

18:49 GMT:

18:47 GMT:

18:45 GMT: Kane misses a penalty to give England a 2-1 lead over Turkey after Vardy was brought down in the box.

18:43 GMT: Lichaj's forays forward create space for Green to shoot from the left edge of the penalty area, but the Bayern reserve's shot is well wide of the near post.

18:40 GMT: Jack Wilshere replaced by Jordan Henderson for England.

18:38 GMT:

18:36 GMT: England make a tactical change, pulling Vardy in from the left flank to partner with Kane on top. And Kane immediately responds by scoring, but for the second time he's flagged for offside.

18:31 GMT: Twenty-five-year-old Fafa Picault of Bundesliga 2 side St. Pauli makes his first senior U.S. appearance, replacing Bobby Wood.

18:30 GMT: Wood, who's impressed as the hub of the U.S. attack, turns and springs Green free down the left flank, but the Bayern Munich starlet is flagged for offside.

18:28 GMT: Puerto Rico expose a disorganized U.S. defense on the counter-attack, but the hosts are unable to string together the ball movement the take advantage of the Americans' defensive lapse.

18:26 GMT: Kane puts the ball in the back of the net for the second time this evening, but the linesman's flag goes up for offside. Still 1-1 between England and Turkey.

18:24 GMT: U.S. unlucky not to extend their lead as Hyndman starts an excellent move on the right side that leads to a teasing cross from Yedlin that Puerto Rican keeper Sanchez can only parry out to the penalty spot, where Hyndman nearly followed up for a tap-in only to slip. Crisis averted for the hosts.

18:22 GMT: Julian Green replaces Alejandro Bedoya, while Eric Lichaj takes Tim Ream's place.

18:20 GMT: England start the second half as they started the first: flying. Vardy cuts back to Dele Alli, but the Tottenham youngster's shot is partially blocked and saved. Still 1-1 in Manchester.

18:18 GMT: The second half between England and Turkey from the Etihad Stadium is underway!

18:15 GMT: GOAL for the U.S.! Bedoya charges down the right side of the Puerto Rico box, dragging goalkeeper Matthew Sanchez well out of position, and the U.S. captain crosses for Paul Arriola to tap into an empty net to give the visitors a 3-1 lead!

18:12 GMT: With his first-half strike at Puerto Rico, Bobby Wood is now the U.S.'s third-leading scorer since June 1, 2015 with five goals, behind only Clint Dempsey (9) and Jozy Altidore (7).

18:07 GMT: U.S. very lucky not to concede just two minutes into the second half. Yanks defenders asleep at the switch as Manolo Sanchez left all alone in the penalty area, but his volley curls just inches wide of the far post.

18:02 GMT: The second half between Puerto Rico and the U.S. is underway in Bayamon! Emerson Hyndman replaces Perry Kitchen in midfield and Matt Miazga takes John Brooks' spot.

18:01 GMT: Half-time at the Etihad, where England and Turkey are level at 1-1. Harry Kane and Hakan Calhanoglu your goal scorers.

18:00 GMT: Jamie Vardy been a bit isolated on England's left wing. The Three Lions may possess the most attacking talent of any side at next month's Euros, but accommodating them all will prove difficult for Roy Hodgson.

17:58 GMT:

17:56 GMT: With five minutes until half-time in Manchester, Turkey enjoying a slim advantage in possession, with 51 percent of the ball through 40 minutes.

17:50 GMT:

17:47 GMT:

17:45 GMT: Half-time in Bayamon, where the U.S. lead Puerto Rico 2-1. Ream, Wood and Betancur the goal scorers. Tim Howard set to make just his second-ever substitute appearance for the Yanks in the second half.

17:41 GMT: GOAL for Puerto Rico! The hosts pounce on a U.S. giveaway and catch the Yanks' defense napping, feeding Luis Betancur from 20 yards out and his first-time attempt is enough to beat Guzan to cut the U.S. lead to 2-1!

17:36 GMT: Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports' Grant Wahl reporting that two Premier League clubs have shown interest in U.S. and Aston Villa keeper Brad Guzan, and the player also has not ruled out a move to Major League Soccer this summer.

17:36 GMT:

17:33 GMT: GOAL for the U.S.! After Morales puts two Puerto Ricans on the floor, for which the referee played advantage, the U.S. recover possession and Bobby Wood ultimately puts the ball in the back of the net as the Yanks lead 2-0 and boos rain down in Bayamon.

17:30 GMT: GOAL for Turkey! Joe Hart fails to clear his lines following a cross and Hakan Calhanoglu buries from close range to level proceedings in Manchester!

17:29 GMT: The U.S. with 79 percent of the ball in Puerto Rico, as both sides pause for a water break.

17:28 GMT:

17:25 GMT: DeAndre Yedlin has been a menace, running up and down the Americans' right flank, really adding another dimension to the U.S. attack.

17:22 GMT: England follow up their aggressive start with some heart-pounding moments at the back, as Turkey force Joe Hart into a couple of early stops.

17:20 GMT: GOAL for the U.S.! Alfredo Morales turns in a curling effort than can only be parried away, but the ball lands right at the feet of Tim Ream, who drives the ball into the far corner to give the U.S. a 1-0 lead over Puerto Rico!

17:18 GMT: GOAL for England! A minute after nearly setting up Vardy for the opener, (an admittedly offside) Kane scores one himself and the Three Lions lead Turkey 1-0 after just three minutes in Manchester!

17:17 GMT: England almost go up 1-0 inside a minute, as Harry Kane slips Jamie Vardy in on Babacan with a delicately weighted through ball, but the Turkey keeper collects.

17:16 GMT: England and Turkey are underway at the Etihad!

17:14 GMT: Alejandro Bedoya's free kick is just inches too tall for Michael Orozco, who rose to meet the service but couldn't quite get his head to it.

17:12 GMT: The England and Turkey XIs are on the field at the Etihad, and the anthems are playing. We'll have kickoff in Manchester in just a few moments.

17:11 GMT: The U.S. still bossing possession in the middle and attacking thirds, but the Yanks have struggled to establish a rhythm in Puerto Rico.

17:07 GMT: The first half-chance of the match derives from a long, diagonal ball from John Brooks to a wide open DeAndre Yedlin, who swings in a cross into the Puerto Rican area, but no U.S. players are able to get on the end of the right-back's service.

17:05 GMT: Proceedings are underway in Bayamon as the U.S. spend the opening five minutes of their friendly camped in Puerto Rico's half.

16:45 BST: We're now just 15 minutes away from Puerto Rico and the U.S. kicking off in Bayamon, and a half hour out from England meeting Turkey at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
