Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has just named his side for our fifth friendly of pre-season against Wolfsburg in Germany this afternoon.
After this, we have one more friendly next Sunday at home to Verona, and that will be our match practice before the Premier League kicks off the weekend after next.
We lost our first game of the preseason last Saturday at Mainz, and it would be terrific to get back to our winning ways.
Here is the team for this afternoon as just reported on the Newcastle United Twitter account.
Subs at Wolfsburg: Darlow, Gámez, Lascelles, Mbemba, Aarons, Colback, Merino, Murphy, De Jong, Diamé, Gayle.

Rafa is giving chances to some players today – and they include starters Javier Manquillo, Ayoxze Perez, Christian Atsu and Aleksandar Mitrovic.
We also expect there to be changes at half time as Rafa gives as many players as possible a run-out today.
It would be good to get the win this afternoon against the Bundesliga side.
Howay The Lads!!
