England vs Bulgaria Match Preview
After missing out on UEFA Nations League glory, England resume their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign aiming to impress as much as they did in their opening two fixtures.
The Three Lions looked to have a strong chance of winning Europe’s newest international competition when they travelled to Portugal in early June but could only finish third after losing in extra time to the Netherlands and then beating Switzerland in a penalty shootout.
But perhaps that long wait for a major trophy has been delayed by only 12 months because England looked superb when putting five goals past both the Czech Republic and Montenegro when they launched their Group A bid back in March.
Two teams will advance from this and all of the other pools and Gareth Southgate’s side are in great shape, topping the table even though they have a game in hand on their closest pursuers Czech Republic and Kosovo, who meet earlier on Saturday.
Bulgaria, meanwhile, are struggling after collecting only two points from their four games and need to hope that national legend Krasimir Balakov, who was appointed as manager shortly before the pair of narrow qualifying defeats in June, can start transforming their fortunes now he has had a few months to settle into the job.
Any kind of decisive victory will do nicely for England to keep them on track for next summer and this is expected to be a routine success if not as spectacular as the two back in the spring.
