England manager Gareth Southgate anticipates a”completely different challenge” out of Kosovo into the one his side faced from Bulgaria on Saturday.
England host Kosovo in Euro 2020 qualifying at Southampton’s St Mary having beaten Bulgaria 4-0.
“It will be a rather different style of game,” said Southgate.
“Kosovo will probably be quite high pressinghard working, a more attacking danger than we faced on Saturday. Maybe there will be more space to play up front.”
He added:”All we learned in Saturday’s match this is a completely different challenge.”
England have won three games in Group A while Kosovo sit point behind in second place – to eight factors – the only other unbeaten team.
Kosovo’s Swiss director Bernard Challandes needs his players dream they can extend their unbeaten streak to 16 games on the first assembly against England of his side.
Recognized in 2016 as a part of Fifa and Uefa, Kosovo haven’t lost in nearly two decades – a streak of 15 games.
“We are Kosovo and we are here against one of the best teams in the world, in my opinion – that the best team on the planet,” Challandes mentioned.
“I think that it is in my philosophy that if we don’t dream it is unnecessary to play these games, then we ought to dream and do all that is possible to disturb England.
“For me as a mentor it is not simple to have a good mix for the evaluation of this particular game.
“If I say’we are to win’, I feel plenty of people think that is pretentious; should I say’it isn’t possible to win from England’, I must alter my job.
“It is clear for me it is going to be a very, very hard game but it is a chance for our really young team to demonstrate what’s a very, very higher level.”
England have no injuries, but changes could be made by Southgate, together with winger Jadon Sancho and full-backs Ben Chilwell along with Trent Alexander-Arnold anticipated to perform.
“We could freshen the team a bit, that will be significant,” he said. “We do not have to, everyone is fit and available. We need to make sure that we get the balance right.
“We need to get the right defending and attacking profiles to make sure that we win the match.”
Southgate did confirm that captain Harry Kane will begin after scoring a hat-trick contrary to Bulgaria to move to 25 goals for his country, one.
