World Cup qualifier: Slovenia to roll over under the Three Lions

An expectant Wembley will be keen to see England wrap up World Cup qualification on Thursday evening and with the likes of Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling all firing in the Premier League, Gareth Southgate’s side should make light work of Slovenia.

The task is very simple for England; win and secure World Cup qualification.

Whilst Southgate’s side would be confident of beating Lithuania away on Sunday night, there should not really be a need to go into the final game under pressure.

It might not always have been the case in recent years, but England currently have some attacking players that should strike fear into the opposition.

Even without the banned Dele Alli, a front three of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford is impressive.

Kane comes into this match off the back of scoring 13 for club and country in September. Sterling and Rashford have played key roles for Manchester City and Manchester United respectively this season.

Slovenia’s form has been patchy of late. They were narrow 1-0 losers to both Slovakia and Scotland over the past year and it’s likely these two results that will prevent them from an elusive World Cup qualifying play-off spot.

In October last year, Slovenia hel

d England to a 0-0 draw in Ljubljana, which Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling missed completely but now, even coming up against one of the world’s best goalkeepers in Jan Oblak, a win this evening should be a given.
