Malta vs England
Malta vs England takes place on Friday, 1st September 2017.
Kick off is at 19:45 UK time which is 14:45 ET on the east coast of New York.
You can tune in at that time to watch live with your VPN service.
Malta shouldn’t be too hard a challenge for England as they’re considered minnows of the tournament. However, England’s post-Rooney future starts now and with all the leading goal scorers having retired, England will be relying on fresh blood.
Joe Hart’s form has been considered poor recently so it might lead Gareth Southgate to look at Jack Butland and with Butland’s league team Stoke City only having conceded 2 goals this season it appears he may be a good choice.
The bookmakers clearly think England have got this one sealed with odds of just 1/20 to win. Odds for Malta on the other hand are 80/1. Our opinion is you would be lucky to win with Malta.
Kane, Alli and Henderson are almost guaranteed spots in the team and now make up what is considered the “old boys”.
Whoever ends up winning it promises to be an exciting game and one you surely won’t want to miss if you’re abroad. Just grab yourself a VPN and watch wherever you are in the world.
