Malta v England Preview
World Cup Qualifying Group F, 1st September 2017, National Stadium, Ta' Qali
- The new season dawns for England with a relatively easy trip to Malta on 1st September. Malta are currently pointless at the bottom of World Cup Qualifying Group F with only two goals to show for their campaign. Follwoing the 2-2 draw with Scotland in June, England's lead has been cut from four to two points but with Slovakia playing Slovenia at the same time as the Three Lions meet Malta, there is potential for Gareth Southgate's men to put some distance between third place. The real test will be the visit of Slovakia to Wembley three days later.
England have faced Malta on four occasions; the 2-0 home leg at Wembley last October, two European Qualiyfing games in 1971 and a friendly in 2000 which was quite a debut for Ipswich Town's Richard Wright.
