Our football match prediction:
England will be looking to cement top position in Group F with a win over Malta at Ta’Qali National Stadium. The Three Lions dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Scotland in June and, no doubt, they are eager to return to winning ways. Gareth Southgate’s troops are likely to go all guns blazing at Malta and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Friday’s football match. Tottenham attacker Harry Kane has been struggling to find his goal-scoring touch of late, but, no doubt, the opposition defenders should have the 2016/2017 EPL top scorer at bay. Malta suffered a loss in each of their six group games and they are unlikely to upset England in front of home fans in Ta’Qali. When the two teams met at Wembley Stadium in the reverse fixture the Three Lions defeated the minnows 2-0 and, taking everything into account, away win appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Henderson):
Jordan Brian Henderson is an English football player born on the 17th of June 1990 in Sunderland. Henderson started his football career playing for Sunderland. After a loan period where he played for Coventry City Henderson got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 18 million euro.

He played for England during EURO 2012 and the World Cup 2014.Henderson is a centre/defensive midfielder which is known for his stamina and great tackling. Because of his vision Henderson got chosen as the captain of Liverpool after Steven Gerrard left the club. Henderson didn’t win any individual prizes yet but can be considered as one of the best players in his position. In season 2011/2012 Henderson won the League Cup with Liverpool. Henderson played for over 20 games in the English national team.
Highlighted Team (England):
One of two oldest national football teams besides Scotland, England have been playing international matches since 1872, but the World Cup title won on home soil in 1966 remain their only major trophy up to date. The Three Lions narrowly missed out on the 1990 World Cup final, losing to Germany on penalties, while they were stopped in quarter-finals on no fewer than five occasions. England twice reached the European Championship semi-finals, in 1968 and 1996, but they have been pretty disappointing at the start of the 21st century, despite boasting arguably the strongest league competition in the world. Sir Bobby Charlton, Jimmy Greaves and Bobby Moore were among players who secured the first major international title, whereas Gary Lineker, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney all played an important role during the modern age. Peter Shilton is the record holder with 125 caps for the national team, while Wayne Rooney surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton as the leading goalscorer in the England national team.
