England – Albania
Friday sees England play host to Albania in a World Cup qualifier game at Wembley. A win would see England qualify for next winter’s tournament in Qatar, while Albania could still make the playoffs with a positive result.
With 20 points gained from their first eight qualifying games, England are just millimeters away from qualifying for next winter’s World Cup in Qatar at this stage. Meanwhile, Albania have done surprisingly well for themselves in this qualifying campaign, and are just two points behind Poland in the race for a playoff spot.
This might be a trickier test for England than their fans would think, but it’s likely that with qualification achievable, Gareth Southgate will play a full-strength side. Therefore, if his key players perform at the best of their ability, it’s likely that the Three Lions will take all the points, cementing their spot in Qatar next year.
This match will be played on 12/11/2021 at 21:45.
