Gareth Southgate has faith in Kosovo will be England’s closest competitor as the road to Euro 2020 starts to emotion up.

The two countries meet for the first time at the senior level when they lock horns in Southampton.

And as Southgate’s Three Lions composed their third win from three games in the cluster with a 4-0 victory over Bulgaria, the England manager admits his side are likely to find a tougher test in the story at St. Mary’s.

Southgate opinion

“I’m imagining this game to be one of the hardest tests that we will face this term,” writes Southgate, in his program notes for the game.

“Kosovo beat the Czech Republic, and I trust they look as likely to be the closest contestants to us in this group as anybody else.”

We are going to be facing a very good squad, with some decent distinct players that are playing in some of the larger leagues in Europe and, of course, they have marvelous pride in playing for what is a relatively newly-formed republic.

I have been impressed with their competitions in this group so far, and also their performances in the Nations League previous season, which have put them on a factual roll

The England team repositioned to the south coast after the weekend game at Wembley, where they have been using Southampton’s training services to fine-tune their arrangements.

And almost accurately one year on from their last game on the road in Leicester, Southgate is looking onward to taking his squad into a different stadium.

Explanation

It is great to have another game on the road, he added. As much as we like to play our games at Wembley, it is such a thrill to take our matches around the country as we have done at Leeds and Leicester over the last year or so.

It gives our fans from around the country an opportunity to perhaps do less travelling and see the team in their local stadium.

And the atmosphere is always incredible, so Southampton can play a part in helping us try to get the three points we need.
