England can finish on a high with win in Kosovo

England journey to Kosovo for their final Euro 2020 qualifying fixture hoping for a warmer welcome than they experienced in Bulgaria last month.

The racial abuse England received was condemned by the Kosovan FA, who have assured the Three Lions that there will be no repeat in this potentially crucial fixture.

The hosts are unbeaten in Pristina and will take confidence from scoring three goals against England in the 5-3 reverse.

England’s only qualifying slip up came on the road against the Czechs and Kosovo are likely to put the pressure on early and deny the visitors’ defence the chance to settle.

The Three Lions have qualified for the finals, but Gareth Southgate shouldn’t allow his team to take their foot off the gas and will want to finish the campaign with a victory.

Best bet
England to win & both teams to score
