The Three Lions are high on confidence after victories in all of their last four qualification matches and they have already beaten European champions Italy, Malta and North Macedonia.

Gareth Southgate’s side also recorded a comprehensive 2-0 victory against Ukraine in the last contest between the two teams in March.

A victory in the upcoming game will put Southgate a step closer to his fourth major tournament as England boss and he will hope to go all the way in Berlin next year after a defeat in the final to Italy in 2021.

The fixture also offers two uncapped England players the chance to impress and Levi Colwill and Eddie Nketiah will both hope to build on their success with the Under-21 team.
