England vs Andorra – World Cup Qualifiers: Team News, Kick-Off Time, TV Channel, Stream, Odds


The action moves quickly for England as they return to Wembley on Sunday evening to take on Andorra in another World Cup qualifier.

The Three Lions returned to action for the first time since their heartbreaking penalty defeat in the Euro 2020 final, when they put in a supremely confident performance at the Puskas Arena on Thursday night, beating Hungary 4-0 at the Puskas Arena.

England were five points clear of the top of Group I with the win – but the win was marred as England players have been the target of vile racist abuse, which has been strongly condemned by the FA, Gareth Southgate, the players, pundits and fans.

Goals from Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Declan Rice gave England the win and they are now turning their attention to what should be a considerably simpler challenge.

England have beaten Andorra in all four of their previous encounters and are expected to take five wins out of five on Sunday – both against their opponents and on the road to Qatar.

With the collision fast approaching, Sportsmail takes you through the all-important information.

What does Group I look like?

England are currently top of Group I and have won all of their four matches so far.

And most importantly, it is only the winner of each group that automatically qualifies for the World Cup in Qatar next year.

England have two games remaining during the international break, with the home game against Andorra ahead of a tough trip to Poland next Wednesday.

Another six points in the remaining two games would put England in a really commanding position for the next round of games in early October.

They now face a Polish side that jumped Hungary to second in the standings on Thursday night, beating Albania 4-1, with Robert Lewandowski as one of the targets, of course.

Team news

England were without Jadon Sancho for their 4-0 win over Hungary after the Manchester United star suffered a ‘minor knock’ beforehand. Southgate said he would be assessed before the game, and will likely be before Sunday.

Southgate had an otherwise fully fit squad to choose from, and they left the field unscathed against Hungary.

England lost Dominic Calvert-Lewin to injury last weekend in Everton’s win over Brighton, while Marcus Rashford, Ollie Watkins, Phil Foden, Ben White and Dean Henderson are also out.

Meanwhile, Patrick Bamford was able to get his first minutes in an England senior shirt after being called up to Southgate’s squad. He was an unused substitute against Hungary.

Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Coady, James, Maguire, Mings, Shaw, Stones, Trippier, Walker

Midfielders: Bellingham, Henderson, Lingard, Mount, Phillips, Rice

forward: Bamford, Grealish, Kane, Saka, Sancho, Sterling

England vs Andorra: the odds

England and Andorra have played four times before, with the latter not scoring a single goal.

The Three Lions won all four times with a total score of 16-0.

Having shown significant progress reaching the Euro 2020 final, while currently surpassing Group I with a perfect record of four wins from as many matches, it is no surprise that England are the overwhelming favorites to win again.

Gareth Southgate’s side are favorites at 1/50 to take the win, with an unlikely draw at 30/1 – and Andorra’s even more unlikely win at 225/1.
