Gareth Southgate's England face Malta for the third game of 2024 Euro qualifying, after winning the first two clashes against Italy and Ukraine. On the other hand, Malta lost both games against North Macedonia and an Italy team coached by Roberto Mancini. England are leading Group C with six points, while Malta are at the bottom of the table with zero points scored.
This will be the sixth international meeting between England and Malta, and the first time that they've met since September 2017. Back then, England defeated the Maltese side 4-0 in the Ta' Qali National Stadium thanks to goals from Harry Kane (two), Ryan Bertrand and Danny Welbeck. That win was in the qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup. Across their two meetings in those qualifiers, England averaged 77% possession and attempted 18 shots on target, allowing Malta just one of their own across 180 minutes.
Malta have lost all five of their matches against England in all competitions by an aggregate score of 14-1. Their only goal against the Three Lions was a Richard Wright own goal in a 2-1 friendly victory in Ta' Qali in June 2000. Current England manager Gareth Southgate came off the bench in that win.
Malta have only ever won seven of their 226 competitive matches across World Cup and European Championship qualification. Malta have scored just one goal in five previous meetings with England – that was a Richard Wright own goal.
England are expected to win and dominate Friday's match, putting themselves in a very good place to qualify for the 2024 Euro. Pick: England 4, Malta 0.
England will be looking to take another step closer to UEFA Euro 2024 qualification as they take on Malta and North Macedonia this month.
Gareth Southgate's side kickoff their double header of matches away in Malta on June 16 before hosting North Macedonia at Old Trafford on June 19.
The Three Lions secured successive wins against Italy and Ukraine in March, and two further victories would put them on the brink of qualification.
The final club game of the season may have only ended last weekend but attention swiftly pivots to international football as England continue their qualifying campaign for Euro 2024.
Gareth Southgate’s side were last in action in March, with the Three Lions kicking off Group C with back-to-back victories over Italy and Ukraine. The 2-1 away win against Italy was significant as it meant that Harry Kane took his England goal tally to 54 and above Wayne Rooney to become the country’s all-time top scorer.
The squad for the latest set of internationals includes new Real Madrid signing Jude Bellingham; a quintet of Manchester City players, fresh off winning the Treble; and a call-up for uncapped Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze.
