Malta has been the beating boys of all time in these major tournament qualifiers. They are almost solely found at the bottom place of their group and hardly manage to collect any point through the entire football campaigns.
Unfortunately, they have not proven otherwise this round either. They are currently at the bottom position of their group without any points. In all six games, they have only scored two goals and have 5 points less than the Lithuania the second bottom team. However, they have a recent victory to celebrate. In June, Malta surprisingly beat Ukraine in a friendly home game.
The Three Lions have 4 wins, 3 draws and two defeats (including their last France friendly match in June) in their last nine matches. England has a tendency of picking the points when they matter most, which leaves them at the top of the World Cup qualifiers.
Away from home, England has struggled recently leaving them with no single victory in almost a year. To be honest, they should not be worried too much about beating Malta. However, this might not be the whipping that people anticipate.
Head to Head
The teams have met 4 times with England as the victor in all of them. However, England saw more than 3 goals in all of them.
