Our long international nightmare is nearly over as England take on Kosovo in the second of their two EURO 2020 qualifiers, this time at Southampton’s St. Mary’s Stadium (instead of Wembley). Three Tottenham Hotspur players were called up by Gareth Southgate, but only one starts — England captain Harry Kane.
Quite WHY England is choosing to play Kane when they already have a stranglehold on their qualifying group is a bit of a mystery, but we also know just how much playing for the Three Lions means to Harry — wild Sissokos can’t keep him off the pitch when Southgate comes calling. Especially now that the media has declared him as officially chasing Wayne Rooney’s England scoring record.
Just please don’t hurt yourself, Harry. COYS.

Match thread rules:
The match thread rules are the same as 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. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. 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 also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” 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.
- NO SPIDERS!!
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
