Gareth Southgate and his men are already coming on the back of an emphatic 5-0 victory over San Marino in their first group game, a result that helped them gain a valuable headstart in the Group I standings.
The Three Lions have been pitted against some tough oppositions in the group, including Hungary, Poland and Albania, who welcome England on their home turf this weekend.
