England takes on Lithuania at Wembley Stadium in what is considered a "key" qualification match for the 2016 European Championships. There are
five four Tottenham players in manager Roy Hodgson's England squad, now that Danny Rose has withdrawn: Kyle Walker, Ryan Mason, Andros Townsend, and, of course, Harry Kane.
Kane, as we all know, has been the subject of intense scrutiny over whether he'll play or even start this match. With Daniel Sturridge dropping out of the squad due to injury, Kane and Wayne Rooney are England's best in-form strikers, but Hodgson has been incredibly tight-lipped over what his plans are for the team. Has a hurricane ever struck Lithuania? WELL ONE'S ABOUT TO.
Use this thread to talk about the match -- it's an open thread! The usual rules apply.

Match thread rules:
It might be an international friendly, but the match thread rules are the same always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We're glad you're here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you're here, though, we have a few rules and regulations.
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They're bad and they get us in trouble.
- We have rules against "relentless negativity." Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. It's just a friendly. Don't knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you're frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don't have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Nobody loves a potty mouth. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you may lose posting privileges. This is an open, supportive community.
- Have fun!
