KICK off: 28 March 19:00
Team news: Nedim Bajrami would have been hopeful of earning his first cap for the national team against Andorra, but a problem with documentation means that the playmaker is not eligible. Etrit Berisha was given the nod in goal over Lazio’s Thomas Strakosha against Andorra and should keep his place after a clean sheet, with Serie A duo Berat Djimsiti and Marash Kumbulla in for a taxing evening in the rearguard. Qazim Laci replaced the veteran Ledia Memushaj off the bench in midweek and will be pushing for inclusion here, but Reja will likely save most of his changes for their trip to San Marino next week. England lost Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Kyle Walker to injury before the visit of San Marino, and the latter remains a doubt for this game while Saka and Rashford have both been ruled out. Nick Pope kept his fifth clean sheet in five appearances for England in midweek and should feature in between the sticks once more, while Reece James and John Stones should reprise their roles in defence after being taken off at half time on Thursday. The duo could be joined by two fresh faces in Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw, while Declan Rice is expected to replace Kalvin Phillips in the middle, but Jude Bellingham’s impressive cameo in midweek is unlikely to see him rewarded with a start. Harry Kane was given a complete rest in midweek and should therefore replace Calvert-Lewin up top, while a frustrated Jesse Lingard will hope to be given another opportunity to find the back of the net, but he is under pressure from Phil Foden.
