In a World Cup 2022 qualifying game, England travel to Tirana to cross swords with Albania on Sunday, March 28. The Group I fixture will be played at the Arena Kombatare, in Tirana.
The hosts, after edging past Andorra 1-0 in their inaugural game, will aim to pull off a major upset on Sunday night. On the other hand, the visitors got their campaign off to a successful start against San Marino (5-0).
Both sides have met four times down the years, with the former coming up trumps on all occasions. The Three Lions’ most recent visit to Albania was in March 2001, that saw Andy Cole, Michael Owen and Paul Scholes score in a 3-1 triumph.
Heading into the match Albania will have strength against England. While the visitors’ Bukayo Saka remains injured and is likely to miss this fixture too. Whereas, their talismanic striker Marcus Rashford’s availability remains doubtful too.
