England vs Lithuania – FIFA World Cup Qualifier – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

England vs Lithuania

England vs Lithuania – England hosts Lithuania at the New Wembley on 26th March, Sunday in a crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

England are top of Group F after four games with ten points (three wins and one draw) while Lithuania are fourth with five points. While the group winners will progress directly to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the nation which comes second might progress to the knock-outs of the qualification stage.

The second-placed Slovenia and the third-placed Slovakia are the prime contenders but Lithuania could pose a challenge should they be able to put up impressive performances over the next six matches.

Team News

Gary Cahill is suspended while Michail Antonio and Phil Jones are sidelined through an injury. Raheem Sterling is listed as a doubt and will face a late fitness test.

England Possible Starting Lineup: Joe Hart, Nathaniel Clyne, John Stones, Chris Smalling, Ryan Bertrand, Adam Lallana, Eric Dier, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dele Alli, Jermain Defoe, Raheem Sterling.

Lithuania Possible Starting Lineup: Ernestas Setkus, Egidijus Vaitkunas, Vytautas Luksa, Tomas Mikuckis, Vaidas Slavickas, Mantas Kuklys, Arturas Zulpa, Fedor Cernych, Vykintas Slivka, Arvydas Novikovas, Nerijus Valskis.

“We have to be patient. We’ve gone into that formation for the first time. The lads played on Saturday and Sunday, we had a cool down [on Monday], so we’ve had one day where everyone’s been out on the training pitch. It’s difficult to put [the team] in a new formation and everyone grasp it straight away. That being said, there are a lot of positives to take.”

– Gary Cahill, England.
