England vs North Macedonia Live: Premier League LIVE – ENG vs MKD LIVE – England travel to North Macedonia for their last match of the Euro qualifiers campaign. The Three Lions are hoping to end the campaign on an unbeaten streak. They’ve been able to accumulate 19 points out of a possible 21 and are sitting at the top of the table. On the other hand, North Macedonia are sitting in 4th place in the group table with 7 points from 7 games with no chance of qualifying for the play-offs.

England’s World Cup journey ended last year in the quarter-finals after losing to France. They were runners-up at the Euro 2020. Considering their form, they are a strong contender for next year’s Euro 2024 finals as well. 

They are 6 points ahead of 2nd-placed Italy in Group C after both teams have played 7 matches. Now the Three Lions only need a single point to book a spot in Pot 1. They still have the odds in their favour with a greater goall difference. 

North Macedonia have won 2, drawn 1, and lost 4 matches so far in the qualifiers campaign. Sitting in 4th place in the group table, the Lions have no way of qualifying for the Euro 2024 finals. They managed to reach the finals of the tournament’s last edition in 2020. 

It was the first time in their history. They are approaching the match on the back of a 5-2 defeat against Italy. They suffered a 7-0 thrashing when they took on England in their last meeting. Hence, the odds are not in their favour.

England Team News 

  • England coach Gareth Southgate could decide to make a few changes to the squad that took to the field against Malta in their last match. For insurance, Marcus Rashford was taken off the field after he sustained an injury when he collided with his own teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold. Hence, he will be unavailable for selection for this match and the coach will have to choose someone else.
  • Jude Bellingham, Luke Shaw, Nick Pope, James Maddison, Reece James, and John Stones are all absent from the squad due to various injuries that are yet to recover. On the other hand, Raheem Sterling who has recently been on a good form with Chelsea was again overlooked by Southgate. 
  • The coach does not have a lot of options for the left-back position. In such a situation, he could opt to feature Rico Lewis in that position from the starting whistle. Adding to Lewis, the coach could also call up Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Jack Grealish, Kyle Walker, and Bukayo Saka to start the match.

North Macedonia Team News

  • North Macedonia lost against Italy in their last match. Their coach Blagoja Milevski could shuffle the team and make a few changes to the squad that will start against England. Jani Atanasov came off the bench and scored two goals in the last match. Hence, the coach could start the midfielder in this match.
  • The coach could also bring in forwards Stefan Ashkovski and Milan Ristovski in the starting XI. The same could be said for Ezgjan Alioski who could earn the coach’s favour. Both of trabzonspor attacking midfielder Enis Bardhi and Napoli midfielder Elif Elmas should retain their positions in the starting XI.
