England Team News
England’s four wins in the qualifiers have come against Montenegro, Bulgaria, Kosovo and Czech Republic at home.
In terms of team selection, Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were ruled out of the 25-man squad.
Harry Maguire’s spot at centre half seems sealed, however, who he partners along with is a question that needs to be answered. Joel Gomez and Michael Keane haven’t done anything too significant at club level this season, while Jon Stones is out of contention due to an injury. Either of Fikayo Tomori or Tyrone Mings might be given an opportunity. Chelsea’s star centre-forward, Tammy Abraham could have a part to play as well.
Czech Republic Team News
The last time the h Republic faced England was at the Wembley Stadium in March. Nevertheless, it was England who scored five with Raheem Sterling bagging a hat-trick.
Regardless of that defeat, Czech Republic finds itself at the second spot in the group with three wins and two losses out of five games.
The Czech Republic’s other defeat came to Kosovo. Their two wins in the Qualifiers were against Montenegro, while one was against Bulgaria.
Jaroslav Silhavy doesn’t seem to have any recent injury updates and is likely to have a fully fit squad.
Silhavy might go with the same eleven that featured in their 3-0 win to Montenegro.
England- Pickford; Alexander-Arnold, Maguire, Keane, Chilwell; Henderson, Rice, Barkley; Sterling, Kane, Rashford.
The Czech Republic- Vaclik; Coufal, Suchy, Celustka, Boril; Kral, Soucek; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick.
Raheem Sterling has been in sensational goal-scoring form for club and country. Sterling has scored six goals for City this season, while also scoring nine for England in all competitions. His nine goals for the nation are the most by any English player this season.
For the Czech Republic, their captain, Vladimir Darida can prove to be influential for his side. Darida has created 12 chances while also securing three assists for Hertha Berling in Bundesliga this season.
