England vs Slovakia 5/9/2017
England huffed and puffed to a 4-0 win over Malta on Friday. Three of the goals came in the last five minutes, although Harry Kane wouldn’t mind the labored win. The Tottenham ace scored a brace there, his first goals of the season after yet another barren August. Captain Jordan Henderson has hailed it a “professional performance” but said they have to improve ahead of this crucial World Cup showdown with Slovakia at Wembley. The Three Lions are two points clear of the Slovaks with three rounds remaining. A slip-up here could be fatal, pushing them to the playoffs. The past two meetings at Wembley went England’s way, a 2-1 win in a Euro 2004 qualifier and a 4-0 rout in a 2009 friendly.
