England are becoming better and better under the management of Gareth Southgate. The Three Lions have a spectacular and enormously talented generation at the moment. Last summer they reached the semi-finals at the World Cup, while the team’s performance in the European qualifying campaign is another proof of their quality. Let’s take a look at the Euro 2020 qualification between England and Bulgaria from Group A on Saturday.
England have played two games in this group so far and in both cases they scored five goals in their opponents’ net. The Three Lions journey in this campaign started with a crushing 5-0 win over Czech Republic at the Wembley. In their second game Southgate’s boys arrived in Montenegro and once again scored five.
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is the team’s topscorer so far. Sterling is playing in fantastic way in the last three seasons and he’s becoming better and better. In just two games for England so far he has scored four goals. He’s going to be one of Three Lions’ main weapons against Bulgaria.
Speaking of Bulgaria, their campaign so far is nothing to be proud of. In four matches played so far, the Bulgarian team won just two points. The Balkan side seriously decreased its chances of reaching the European Championship.
Before their fourth game in the group against Kosovo Bulgaria changed their manager. The domestic Football Association appointed one of the country’s biggest legends Krassimir Balakov. But sadly for them, Balakov’s debut was not successful and Bulgaria suffered a 2-3 defeat in Sofia against Kosovo.
We have all the reasons to believe that England will enjoy themselves against Bulgaria on Saturday. These two teams are very different in terms of quality, plus the Three Lions are enjoying being in a great shape lately. It’s going to be a really rought night for the visitors at the Wembley.
