England vs Slovenia Preview

England vs Slovenia

Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 5th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

England are one point away from booking their place in next year’s World Cup depending on the result of Scotland and Slovakia however a win in this match ensures that they go through regardless.

This game should be easy for the Three Lions but Slovenia have proven to be a very effective side during this qualifying series and they should come to this match determined not to lose as they also have a chance of qualifying for the playoffs.

Harry Kane is currently on top form with many believing he should be the next captain of England.

He will lead their attack well in this game.

England’s defence have consistently been exposed by top teams over the past year and Slovenia could unsettle them and get a few chances in this game.

Slovenia have been impressive especially at the back in this qualifying series.

They have conceded just 3 goals in their last 10 qualifying games and they will be looking to frustrate an England side that has already been noted for a lack of creativity.

The threat of Harry Kane may be too much for them to handle in this game.

They managed to hold England to a goalless draw in the reverse game of this fixture but prior to that game, theylost 4 games out of 4.
