England Vs Slovenia Team News: 

The England squad did face a slight blow at the start of the week when Fabian Delph and Phil Jones were dropped from the team due to injury hassles. However, this has brought a shining opportunity for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks who has been called up to join the senior England side.

To add more, Tottenham sensation Harry Kane has been offered the arm band to lead the side for their Group F clash against Slovenia. England boss Gareth Southgate has put his faith in the 24-year old who has proven his presence by scoring 13 goals in 11 appearances for club and country in the current season. On the other hand, the one-match FIFA suspension of Dele Alli is a significant loss for England in terms of their midfield formation.

Looking at Slovenia, the squad has been strengthened with the presence of Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak. The availability of defenders Bostjan Cesar and Mitja Viler is expected to give heavy competition to the storming attack of England comprising of skipper Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge and the young star from Manchester United, Marcus Rashford. Slovenia might appear as a weaker side but the likes of Josip Ilicic and Atalanta midfielder Jasmin Kurtic cannot be taken lightly.

England Vs Slovenia Match Preview:

Considering the statistics for England, the squad has won four and drawn one out of their five previous encounters with Slovenia. Under Gareth Southgate, the team managed to rest the result to a draw back in October 2016. However, the Englishmen have only lost once out of their last 18 matches at home; this comes as a major confidence booster for the team.

Slovenia haven’t had a disappointing run, but have only lost just two of their previous 11 matches in all competitions. Interestingly, Josip Ilicic has managed to maintain his position as the star player for the Slovenian side with his efforts being involved in three goals and four assists across different matches in World Cup 2018 qualification.

One surely cannot call this match as a cut-throat battle, but Slovenia can create a hindrance for England if their midfield doesn’t feed in good balls at the front.

England Vs Slovenia Match Prediction:

As per the prediction, the score might end at 2-1; Harry Kane expected to hit the opening goal.
