England will continue their journey to fix a place in Euro 2020 next summer. England will be travelling to Eden Arena to play the Czech Republic on Friday night. Gareth Southgate’s team is currently enjoying the top spot in group A, as they are six points clear of Czech Republic. England showed no mercy when they met Czech Republic last time. The English side had a 5-0 thumping win over them. A win in the reverse fixture will see the Three Lions confirm their qualification for Euro 2020.

England are travelling without senior players like Dele Alli, Kyle Walker, Eric Dier and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Friday night's clash. Gareth Southgate has shown his trust on the younger side of the squad with the inclusion of players like Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori. Unfortunately, Fabian Delph had to withdraw from the Euro 2020 qualifier due to a hamstring injury he picked up during Everton’s Premier League clash.
