England take on Albania in their second World Cup qualifying on Sunday.

Albania defeated Andorra 1-0 in their opening match while England crushed San Marino 5-0 at Wembley.

Goals from James Ward-Prowse, Raheem Sterling, Ollie Watkins and a Dominic Calvert-Lewin double ensured their qualifying campaign got off to an excellent start.

The Three Lions will be focused on maintaining that winning start and keeping a clean sheet for the third consecutive match. Gareth Southgate has reiterated how delighted he is to see the Three Lions “hungry” for success: "The whole team were hungry to play. Sometimes these games have been stodgy for us in the past but this team can play slightly differently, we have some creative players who can open teams up.

“A lot of those chances were created by the good pressing and winning the ball high up the pitch. But also some of the interchange of position and the vision of players. If we were to be ultra-critical, we probably should have scored more but we also have to say their goalkeeper had an absolutely fantastic game. I was very pleased because the behaviours and habits we showed, to be a top team we have to show those every day, in every training session, and every match and today we respected the game and went about it the right way."
