Slovenia vs England Preview
England just won 2-0 against Malta and looked alright in the first half but the second was useless as England failed to add to the score. It’s Malta, and neither the result nor the performance was something to cheer about. Slovenia will be a much bigger test for England. Slovenia didn’t do well in the first round, they had to come back from 2-0 in Lithuania to win a point in injury time, but then they won 1-0 at home against Slovakia. Not too bad, and this result here will tell the real story about Slovenia chances to qualify for the World Cup.

Expect another difficult match for England, they’ll have to be at their best to win this one. England won all four contests with Slovenia but none was easy.
