England vs Bulgaria − Match preview

England won their first two qualifiers, beating Montenegro and the Czech Republic 5-1 and 5-0 respectively, all the way back in March.

Gareth Southgate’s side last played on June 9 − a dull 0-0 draw against Switzerland in the Nations League third-place playoff, though England won the ensuing penalty shootout.

Bulgaria haven’t yet recorded a win. They kicked off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with 1-1 draws against Montenegro and Kosovo, but were then beaten by the Czech Republic and Kosovo. Will it be fifth time lucky against England?
