England to maintain perfect record

England to maintain perfect record

England is looking to continue their prolific run, with hopes of qualifying for the Euro 2024, as they are about to face North Macedonia in this match. These two teams are coming from different result for this match, which could affect their momentum here. England is confident coming into this game, as they defeated Malta in a 4-0 win. As for N. Macedonia, they suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat against Ukraine on their last match. With both teams aiming for qualification in Euro 2024, England and N. Macedonia can no longer afford to lose. A loss in this match will be crucial for both teams as it could stop them from qualifying in Euro 2024. This meeting will be on June 20, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), with England playing as hosts.

These two teams had four matches already prior to this match, where the hosts remains unbeaten in those four matches. They recorded two wins, and two draws, leaving the visitors winless against them. Additionally, considering that the hosts are playing at home, it might be an additional advantage for them. They were able to win their last 11 continental qualifiers played at home, giving them more confidence here. As for the visitors, it seems like playing away from home in Euro qualifying is not that much a problem for them. In fact, from their last seven Euro qualifying match on the road, they only lost to two. However, they only have two wins from their last six matches across all contests.

England has the confidence coming into this match, as they are from a 4-0 win against Malta on their previous game. Ferdinando Apap, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Kane, and Callum Wilson all helped England to win that match. On that match, Trent Alexander-Arnold have been a standout, being able to be effective in his new role. Additionally, they had a stellar performance on that match, not allowing their opponent to score a single goal. In the contest, England are actually doing well, as they won their past three matches in the group stage. Coming into this match, they are hoping to retain their perfect record in the group stage. England has a talented squad, which is why it is no longer surprising that they have a perfect record coming into this game.

Despite the ankle issue Bukayo Saka sustained on their last match, it is expected that he will be fine to play in this match. Moreover, guys like Jack Grealish, John Stones, Kyle Walker, and Kalvin Phillips, are all put to reserve for this game.

North Macedonia on the other hand is unfortunate that they were not able to protect their lead in the first half, causing them to lose that match. They already have a two-goal lead in the first half, but Ukraine were able to climb back from that goal deficit to win the match. It was Enis Bardhi, and Elif Elmas who gave N. Macedonia the lead in the first half. On the other hand, it was Ilya Zabarnyi, Yukhum Konplya,a and Viktor Tsyhankov who led Ukraine. Currently, N. Macedonia is sitting at the fourth in their group, as they have one win and one loss from their previous match. If N. Macedonia still want to qualify in the 2024 Euro, they can no longer afford to add another loss. They have been a tough opponent for England, despite not winning a single game against them. This is a record they want to put a stop to.

Due to a red card on their last game, Visar Musliu will be unavailable in this match, to serve his suspension. Aside from him, there are no absentee in this match, as they do not have an injury problem.
