Slovenia host England in Ljubljana on Sunday as Roy Hodgson’s men aim for a sixth consecutive clean sheet to boost their Euro 2016 campaign.
Hodgson’s side have won all five of their qualifying games so far but there will be pressure to put on a performance after a lackluster 0-0 draw with Ireland last weekend.
Goalkeeper Joe Hart was keen to point out that England have a responsibility to get results and not simply entertain and victory in Ljubljana will edge England closer to a place in France next summer.
“We were there to do a job and, if we get the result against Slovenia, this was worth it. Slovenia will be tough – they made it difficult for us at home – and we have Switzerland to come,” he said.
Hodgson’s men have won seven and drawn two of nine matches this season and England, along with Slovakia, are the only team in qualifying yet to drop a point, having won all 5 of their Group E fixtures to date.
The Three Lions have never lost to Slovenia and are strong favourites. However, the hosts could still represent England’s toughest test of the campaign and they are the only side that have managed to score against England in the group this far.
Although they are a relatively new face on the international scene, the Slovenians have not conceded in any of their last four competitive games at home and will be in confident spirits following their 6-0 demolition of San Marino in their last qualifying match.
The 1-0 win over Estonia demonstrated that England can be frustrated by some of the weaker teams and Slovenia will be looking for revenge, especially following England’s poor performance in their recent friendly in Dublin.
Nevertheless, Slovenia were beaten 1-0 by Qatar in their own friendly and this outcome was far worse than what England managed at the weekend.
Slovenia are capable of an upset by holding the visitors to a draw, however the Three Lions will feature a few players eager to cement their place in the England squad and they are sure to give it all they got on Sunday.
