England v Kosovo 10/9/19 (live on ITV)

Going to the game tonight (it's at St Mary's so not far to travel). Wrongly assumed when I booked the tickets months ago, that this would be some sort of 7-0 type qualifier.

Looking at Kosovo (sitting second in the group with 2 wins and 2 draws) they are unbeaten in 15, so must be doing something right.

Just seen the crazy Kosovo manager on tv. Complete nutter! Makes Nigel Pearson look normal!

They love their football in Kosovo especially the EPL, very vibrant team and fairly young too but England will be to strong for them.

Unbeaten in 15? That can't be right?


Edit, I make it 14! However some shocking opponents (Malta Burkina Faso etc.)

Good luck to them though. For Euro 2020, the top two in each group go straight through, there are no play-offs if you finish in 2nd place, so qualification looks very much theirs for the taking

I have no idea about Kosovo’s team or football but if they’re unbeaten in 14 then they must have something about them that makes them decent, if if a few of the games were wanky ones.

TBH, I hope they are good. I want England to win but I’m fed up with seeing us brush aside the equivalent of pub teams and winning 4/5 - 0 with no real test and is just going through the motions. Time and again when we play the big nations we fall apart because we’re not used to playing decent teams. I don’t blame England as such for this but the structure of how the competitions are designed.

Spot on , Saturday was a big mis match and ruined the game imo. Think we struggled to get going because we knew we’d win.

I think this is being talked up a bit to try and generate some interest / TV viewer figures on ITV = greater advertising revenue = ITV pay more for the game / next game.

Agree , although some are saying their style will make them competitive so at least that should generate some interest . I’ll be starting work when it kicks off .

It's one hell of a footballing genepool. Half of the Swiss squad seem to be from there too, and were even offered to switch to play for them when they started in 2016 (all declined since it would have effected their incomes).

Kosovo's record is a bit distorted by their piss easy Nations League group and friendlies. But their recent record is good.

I think it's a lot like some of the premiership games and in fact us and against big teams.

They try to defend for dear life, sit deep and drill the defence frustrate the opposition while looking to hit them on the odd counter attack.

Difference being in the premiership there is less of a gap in quality so the balance is better and teams like us usually have a slightly higher success rate. The international sides on the other hand are weaker, play at a much lower level and their fitness levels much poorer... Hence why they usually get dismantled in the second half/final half hour as fatigue (both physical and mental) takes its toll.
