England round off the international break – and their EURO 2024 qualifying campaign – with an away trip to North Macedonia on Monday night.
North Macedonia are already out of contention to qualify for next summer’s finals, whereas England – who have already sealed qualification – just need a point to ensure they enter pot one for the upcoming draw.
Gareth Southgate was reluctant to experiment too much with this team in England’s comfortable, albeit fairly dull, 2-0 win over Malta on Friday with the likes of Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson keeping their places in the side.
Cole Palmer was handed his first cap off the bench, though, and the uncapped Ezri Konsa and Rico Lewis will be hoping the same will happen to them on Monday night.

North Macedonia have very little to play for here, but will still be keen to cause an upset to round off their qualification campaign.
In their last outing, a 5-2 defeat to Italy, Jani Atanasov scored two goals off the bench so it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see North Macedonia boss Blagoja Milevski introduce him into the starting XI for this match.
England were extremely comfortable in victory the last time these two sides met and I expect it to be the same story again here, despite North Macedonia’s home advantage.
At 3/4 with starsports.bet, I am backing a Three Lions win to win nil here. However, I am also backing England to win either 3-0, 4-0 or 5-0 which you can find as a build-a-bet boost at starsports.bet.
