Boasting a strong defensive record at Wembley, Al Hain-Cole expects Southgate's men to ease aside a visiting team that struggles for goals on the road

England will be aiming to secure their place in next summer’s World Cup when they welcome Slovenia to Wembley for Thursday’s qualification clash.

Five points clear at the top of Group F, Gareth Southgate’s men are available at 4/11 (1.36) with dabblebet to book their tickets to Russia by coming out on top in their final qualifier on home soil.

However, the guests are also fighting hard for a place in the World Cup as they sit six points off the top in third, and can be backed at 17/2 (9.50) to give their chances a major boost by pulling off a shock win in London.

The sides shared a 0-0 draw when they met in Ljubljana last October, and there are odds of 4/1 (5.00) on offer on them playing out another stalemate here.

The Three Lions were actually rather fortunate to escape the Stadion Stozice with a point last year, when Joe Hart made a number of key saves in a Man of the Match performance.

However, the goalmouth action is likely to be at the other end of the pitch when the sides meet once again on English soil, where the hosts have not failed to score in 22 World Cup qualifiers.

Having conceded just 10 times in those 22 matches, Southgate’s men will certainly feel confident of keeping at bay an attack that has struggled to fire away from home recently.

While they have scored six goals in their last two matches on home turf, Srecko Katanec’s team have failed to find the net in either of their last two matches on the road - as well as putting just one past lowly Malta in their previous trip before that.

All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) seem generous on England sealing qualification by winning to nil for the eighth time in 11 World Cup qualifiers in their own back yard.
