England will book their place in the showpiece tournament if they avoid losing to Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday.
Gareth Southgate’s men will be looking to record their third consecutive win in the World Cup qualifiers and give their fans something to cheer about as they prepare to put in a determined performance to get the job done before the trip to Lithuania next week.
Unbeaten in eight matches thus far in the campaign, the Three Lions have a six-point advantage over their Thursday rivals but will have to deal with a couple of notable injury absentees at Wembley.
Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson and Michael Keane all missed the Monday training session at St George’s Park and took a recovery session instead so Southgate will be hoping to have them at his disposal in time for Thursday.
Tottenham star Dele Alli is suspended for the game, while Manchester United defender Phil Jones and Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph have returned to their clubs due to injury.
Gareth Southgate still has plenty of squad depth to deal with Slovenia at home as have been installed as firm favourites to win the forthcoming clash.
The Three Lions boast a good scoring record over the past couple of matches, having bagged ten goals over four last matches in all competitions, but with just one clean sheet in the process there is a great value in both teams to score market.
