The England and Kosovo clash is just around the corner in another European UEFA qualifier for 2020.
Admittedly it should be an easy game for England, but watching the match can be anything but.
With less weight placed on these qualifying games, it’s hard to find a decent official stream of the event and without resorting to those sketchy Reddit threads, you could be left with nowhere to watch.
The great news is, it doesn’t need to be like this.
In this guide I’ll be showing you how to use a VPN app to live stream to game wherever you are on the world.
The previous match from September 10th saw Kosovo lose 5-3 against England, although they did manage to see off the Czech Republic just before that and convincingly beat Montenegro after that.
So if you’re excited to see who will win this final group stage match, read on.
When’s the game taking place?
As you may know, the match will take place on November 17th of this year, and it will take place in Pristina, at the Fadil Vokm Stadium.
Kick off is at 5 pm GMT / UTC.
The stadium was previously known as Pristina City Stadium, and it is a multi-purpose stadium that is used mostly for football matches.
It is also home ground of FC Pristina, and it can hold 13,500 spectators.
What do you need to watch the match abroad?
As mentioned, not everyone will be able to watch the match this weekend, mostly because it will be live-streamed on the UK’s ITV Hub.
As you may be aware, ITV Hub isn’t available everywhere, meaning that it is only available to those who are physically in the UK.
If you’re outside the UK for the weekend or more permanently this sucks for you.
However, an app called a VPN can let you watch any content, provided that you use the right service.
This is not what VPN was initially developed, of course, as its original purpose was to keep people safe, private, and semi-anonymous online through the use of several security and privacy features.
However, watching TV from other countries, sporting events and watching different regions of Netflix has become one of their biggest uses in recent years.
Where to get a VPN?
There are many providers of VPN services out there, which might make it challenging to choose a good one.
Some are basic, at best, and proper services can often end up lost in the crowd.
After extensive testing we found ExpressVPN to be about the best choice, although there are others which I’ll discuss in a minute.
ExpressVPN uses strong security and privacy features, it doesn’t keep logs of your activities, and it can allow you to unblock any content in 94 different countries.
It also has a 30-day money-back guarantee, sensible prices, and offers dedicated apps for many devices. Not to mention that it has excellent speeds, perfect for streaming things such as football matches.

Predictions on a winner
The match between England and Kosovo will be the final one for qualifying Group A.
Many believe England already has its place in the 2020 European Championship secured, so it doesn’t really have to win the game although this may be tempting fate depending on results of other teams.
Kosovo, on the other hand, needs the victory here to qualify. There are still other matches to consider but they’ll certainly be trying their best to upset England’s road to the tournament.
England vs Kosovo will decide whether or not Kosovo will make history by qualifying for the 2020 European Championship, as well as whether or not England will enter it confidently or with two significant losses in the qualifications round.
If you want to watch every moment, then grab a VPN from ExpressVPN, and connect to one of their ‘UK’ locations.
Then enjoy live streaming the game on ITV Hub wherever you are.
