With World Cup qualification secured, Gareth Southgate will now set about trying to build a team that can compete in Russia next summer

Lithuania vs England: World Cup 2018 qualifier prediction, team news, line-ups and how to watch on TV and online


England may have booked their place at next summer’s World Cup finals, but there’s still one qualifier remaining for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Harry Kane’s stoppage time goal at Wembley secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Slovenia which ensured the Three Lions would finish as the winners of Group F.

Sunday’s match in Lithuania will provide Southgate with an opportunity to road test a few of his squad players, but considering the lacklustre display at Wembley on Thursday, he may use the match as an opportunity to create some much-needed continuity in the team.

Start time

Kick off at the LFF Stadium in Vilnius is 5pm BST on Sunday October 8.
