England vs Kosovo Match Preview
England Harry Kane will be the one to watch for England following his hat-trick last time out against Bulgaria. With Raheem Sterling also scoring seven goals in his last eight matches, the hosts should have too much quality for the visitors.
The Three Lions could have done little more than they have so far in Group A, winning three matches out of three by a 14-1 aggregate to seize control of the table even though they have at least one game in hand on all of their rivals.
Kosovo will look to Vedat Muriqi for goals on Tuesday but the striker is not particularly prolific for the national team. Bersant Celina and Elbasan Rashani have also looked off colour lately and should struggle against a solid English backline.
Kosovo were also victorious in their previous qualifying outing as they beat Czech Republic 2-1. They fought back from a goal down with Vedat Muriqi netting the equaliser on 20 minutes while Megrim Vojvoda grabbed the winner in the second half.
