England Preview – Three Lions to take another giant leap towards Qatar?

England are sitting pretty at the top of 2022 World Cup qualifying Group I. Gareth Southgate’s men have won six and drawn two of their eight games. They won five in a row at the start but have drawn two of their past three.

England had a 100% record before letting in an injury-time goal to draw 1-1 with Poland in Warsaw on 8th September. They also dropped points in their last one, with Hungary leaving Wembley Stadium with a surprise 1-1 draw. The Poles have kept them honest at the top, but Southgate’s troops should go on and win the group.

Our betting prediction:
England to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1503 GMT, Thursday 11 November)

England will be targeting six points from their remaining qualifiers, which would be more than enough to secure first place. After Friday’s game, the English end their World Cup qualifying campaign with a trip to Serravalle to play minnows San Marino on Monday.

Albania Preview – Can the Albanians cause an upset at Wembley?

Albania have done themselves proud in Group I. They can still sneak into the top two, though the odds are stacked against them. Nevertheless, five wins from eights games in an excellent return for the Albanians.

Albania had won five of their opening seven before a gut-wrenching 1-0 home defeat to Poland in their last one, which could cost them dearly. They were leapfrogged by the Poles and went five points behind England.

Defeat or a draw in London coupled with a Poland win over Andorra on Friday will signal the end to Albania’s slim qualification hopes. Still, can they take it to the final day with an unlikely victory at Wembley?


England vs Albania Betting Advice

The fixture at the Arena Kombetare in Tirana back in March was the first meeting between the nations for two decades. The Red and Blacks had won their opener and fancied their chances against the Three Lions, but England scored in either half to pick up a hard-fought 2-0 win.

The last game between the pair on English soil also ended in a 2-0 victory for the English. In September 2001, goals from Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler did the business in a 2002 World Cup qualifier. The reverse fixture ended in a 3-1 away win for England.


Key Facts – England vs Albania Betting Tip

  • England are unbeaten in Group I, winning six and drawing two of eight
  • The Three Lions won 2-0 in Tirana in March
  • Albania were beaten by Poland in their last qualifier


England put on a perfect away performance in Tirana to leave with three points. Harry Kane opened the scoring in the 38th minute, with Mason Mount doubling their advantage in the 63rd. You can get 8/15 for England to be winning at half time and full time in this one.

Harry Kane has a remarkable goal-scoring record in qualifiers for England. The skipper has scored five goals during this qualification campaign, including the opener when these two met in the Albanian capital six months ago. The Tottenham Hotspur man is priced at 11/5 to open the scoring on Friday.
