England vs. Kosovo: Euro 2020 Qualifier – Match Preview

by hisham

England can take another big step towards Euro 2020 qualification when they host second placed Kosovo on Tuesday.

England have won all three of their qualification fixtures so far, including a comfortable 4-0 win over Bulgaria.

Harry Kane scored a hat-trick on Saturday, with Raheem Sterling also among the scorers.

Kosovo have made a very good start to qualifying themselves, claiming eight points from their first four matches.

A 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic on the weekend has left them well placed to reach their first ever major tournament.

Tuesday’s meeting will be the first ever international meeting between the two nations.
