Good night
Thank you very much for following tonight's live feed. Be sure to check back in to VAVEL for the rest of the week as we build up to the return of domestic competition this weekend!
Brave Kosovo
Praise must be given to Kosovo as they really played their part in a fascinating encounter. It is clear to see why they are causing problems for other sides and they appear to be genuine contenders to appear at next summer's tournament.
Full time
FT: What a game we have been treated to here at St Mary's. Gareth Southgate will be unhappy with his side's defensive showing but this game has had it all. Kosovo scored after just 35 seconds to really shock the St Mary's crowd.

England then ran riot for the rest of the first half, securing a 5-1 lead at the break through Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, an own goal and Jadon Sancho x2.

Kosovo then scored two in the first ten minutes of the second half to scare the Three Lions. England remain in control of Group A and only need one more win to secure qualification for next summer's euros.

Added time
90' We will have five minutes of additional time.
88' Rashkaj was booked in the lead up to that Rashford chance for a tackle on Mason Mount. The challenge was so bad it could have warranted a red on another day.
87' Celina almost scores a fine solo goal, bending one towards the far post after a great goal but it falls just wide.
86' Rashford almost scores immediately, powering a shot at goal which is saved well by Muric.
Substitution
85' Marcus Rashford enters the fray for Jadon Sancho. The Dortmund man leaves with a brace to his name, as does Berisha who is replaced by debutant Hasani.
Substitution
83' Mason Mount comes on for Ross Barkley to gain his second cap. Goalscorer Berisha is also booked for kicking the ball away.
77' Kosovo are still flying forward. What a showing from Bernard Challandes men, they have not disappointed.
75' Gareth Southgate is yet to introduce anyone from the bench. Could it be time for a change?
74' England once again break at a frightening pace but this attack results in a corner.
73' Harry Kane steals possession on the edge of the Kosovo box and tees up Sterling perfectly. Sterling cannot secure his brace as Muric directs his effort onto the post. Should have scored.
71' Trent Alexander-Arnold is stood over the free-kick but fires his effort narrowly wide.
70' Another booking for Kosovo as Aliti is booked for a late challenge on Jadon Sancho.
68' Harry Kane missing a penalty is the perfect illustration of the craziness of this game. Paqarada was booked for distracting Kane in the build up to the penalty. 
PENALTY MISSED
64' Harry Kane misses! The normally reliable Harry Kane has had his penalty saved by Muric. Only the second missed penalty of his career.
PENALTY TO ENGLAND
63' Penalty to England after Ross Barkley is brought down after a strong run.
60' The Kosovo fans are loving this whilst the England supporters appear stunned. England are trying to settle things down by keeping the ball at the back.
Substitution
59' Voca is replaced by Rashkaj.
57' Muriqi denied Berisha his hat-trick by taking that penalty but Kosovo will not mind. They are back in this one!
GOAL FOR KOSOVO
55' Madness at St Mary's. Kosovo have scored two quick goals to bring themselves within two of the Three Lions. Pickford gets two hands to Muriqi's penalty but cannot quite keep it out. Gareth Southgate will be incensed.
PENALTY TO KOSOVO
54' Harry Maguire brings down Muriqi in what is a certain penalty. The striker will take the penalty.
52' Kosovo certainly have fulfilled their promise to press and have a go. Valon Berisha wins the ball back high up the pitch and is now in search of a famous hat-trick!
GOAL FOR KOSOVO
49' Berisha scores his second and once again it is sloppy from England. Declan Rice loses the ball in the middle of the park before Muriqi finds Berisha with a delightful pass. The wide man has no problems scoring his second, once again curling the ball past Pickford.
48' Trent Alexander-Arnold unleashes a left-footed volley straight at the goalkeeper after a lovely Harry Kane pass.
Substitution
46' Muslija was replaced at half-time by Paqarada.
Back underway
46' Ross Barkley gets proceedings going again.
Half-time
Half-time comes ten minutes too late for Kosovo as England score three just before half time. Kosovo's endeavour has played right into England's hands who have been devastating on the counter. Raheem Sterling has had a hand in four of the goals and has been the star so far. 

The second half now has to be about damage limitation for Kosovo.

GOAL FOR ENGLAND
45' Jadon Sancho taps in to score another. Raheem Sterling flies down the left after beating his man and puts it on a plate for his former teammate. Curtains for Kosovo.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
GOAL FOR ENGLAND
44' Declan Rice wins the ball back in midfield and England complete a devastating counter attack. Sterling flies forward and releases Sancho who makes no mistake scoring his first international goal. Kosovo are really playing into England's hands.
GOAL FOR ENGLAND
38' Unfortunate moment here for Kosovo. The Kosovo left-back is down injured but England are unaware and carry on playing. Jadon Sancho finds himself on the right and fizzes a cross along the byline and a helpless Vojvoda can only help the ball into his own net. Bernard Challandes is incensed.
37' Kosovo have struggled to assert any forward pressure since their goal but they have now. Right back Vojvoda unleases a shot which only just passes Jordan Pickford's post.
34' Sterling continues to trouble Kosovo, this time powering down the left to win a corner. Michael Keane once again rises highest but heads over.
31' Berisha manages to get another shot away for Kosovo but this one is from distance, barely reaching Pickford.
28' Kosovo are beginning to activate more of press but England remain comfortable in possession.
25' Barkley wins another free-kick. This one is in a lot more dangerous position and the Chelsea midfielder will take it...
23' England have really upped the tempo now. Ross Barkley jinks and weaves on the edge of the box before Sancho is just unable to find a teammate with his cross.
22' England have turned this one around very impressively after the early setback. Ross Barkley earns his side a free-kick inside their own half.
GOAL FOR ENGLAND
19' Harry Kane lashes the ball past Muric but this goal is all about Raheem Sterling. Sterling picks the ball up on the half way line, spins his man and drives all the way to the box before releasing Kane to his left. The captain makes no mistake, powering a left footed finish through the Kosovo keeper.
18' Jordan Henderson almost releases Sancho with a gorgeous back heel, the winger so close to taking the ball in his path.
16' Ross Barkley beats his man in midfield before finding Raheem Sterling in a dangerous position on the edge of the box. The England goalscorer ends up being wasteful, unable to find Sancho in space on the right-hand side of the box.
15' With Kosovo in possession, England are operating in a 4-1-4-1 with Rice patrolling in front of the back four. 
13' Kosovo are finally enjoying some of the ball. A cross from the right forces Maguire to clear his lines for a throw-in.
11' Ben Chilwell goes on a mazy run down the left and fashions another England corner.
10' What a start to this game. England are now dominating possession and settling right into the tie.
GOAL FOR ENGLAND
8' England bounce straight back. Michael Keane atones for his earlier error by rising highest to meet the corner. Raheem Sterling gets on the end of Keane's header and steers the ball past Muric. 1-1!
7' England finally manage to move forwards. Henderson releases Sancho down the right hand side before the Dortmund man's cross is diverted out for a corner.
6' Kosovo are not pressing with the intensity that Challandes promised. This may be due to the fact that they are in lead and therefore want to protect that already...
4' 35 seconds was all it took for Kosovo to score. What a start. Michael Keane and England now have to figure out how to get themselves back in this game.
1' Ross Barkley passed the ball back to Michael Keane who just feeds Berisha into a one-on-one situation with Pickford. The wide man remained composed and stroked the ball past Pickford.
GOAL FOR KOSOVO
Michael Keane has gifted Kosovo the dream start. Magical moment for Kosovo!!!
Kick-off
0' Bersant Celina gets us underway!
Anthem time at St Mary's.
Teams in the tunnel
Harry Kane looks in supreme focus as he leads the England line in the tunnel. Can he replicate his goalscoring form from the weekend?
Kosovo fans making themselves heard
St Mary's might only be a third of the size of Wembley but the Kosovo fans have really established a presence in the ground, making themselves heard as they build up to this crunch game.
Second time lucky?
This is only the second time that the Three Lions have played at St Mary's. October 2002 saw the only other fixture in which England drew 2-2 with Macedonia in a Euro 2004 qualifier.
Remarkable progress
For a nation that have only been official FIFA members since 2016, to be unbeaten in their last fifteen fixtures illustrates just how well this Kosovo team are playing. They now represent the biggest threat to England and the Group A top spot.
A change in the usual template?
So often in England's qualifiers we see a team park eleven men behind the ball and the game is played at a pedestrian pace. Tonight's opposition promise to change the mould with manager Bernard Challandes highlighting his sides plans to press intensely from the off. Could this provide England's forward trio with too much space or will it prove to be an inspired decision?
Referee
German referee Felix Zwayer will officiate tonight's fixture.
Barkley retains place
There have been calls all week from the England fans for either James Maddison or Mason Mount to get their first England start, however Ross Barkley has retained his place as Gareth Southgate prefers continuity over youthful exuberance. 
Kosovo XI
Muric; Vojvoda, Rrahmani, Aliti, Hadergjonaj; Halimi, Voca, Muslija, Celina, Berisha; Muriqi.
England XI
Pickford; Alexander-Arnold, Keane, Maguire, Chilwell; Rice, Henderson, Barkley; Sancho, Kane, Sterling.
That is all for now as we build up to this Group A clash in which the victor will come out on top of the table.

We will be back once the line ups are released, an hour or so before kick-off.

Challandes delivers fiery press conference
Kosovo manager Bernard Challandes shocked reporters in Sunday's press conference, passionately shouting how his side intend to stop England on Tuesday.

"It's tactical pressing, in a crazy game, it's go, return, go, go, go, go, go! Perhaps they lose the ball and we score, because gegenpressing is not only defence, it's preparation for a goal for us. It's, for me, crazy pressing."

Southgate excited by attacking options
Gareth Southgate has been speaking of the quality his side possesses in forward positions, stating that even they don't know how good they can be.

"They're as exciting as anything, I remember going to Spain [in October 2018] and thinking: 'Well, a really tough game.' But, actually, you look at our front three and their front three on the night and I felt that we were strong. We've got Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi who are going to push - and really push."

When questioned about whether England's attackers know they can be some of the worlds best, Southgate said: "They have great humility. I think they possibly don't, because they sometimes don't view themselves as others do."


Stadium
Tonight's fixture sees the Three Lions move away from their familiar home of Wembley, turning out at the home of Southampton FC, St Mary's.

 

Kosovo team news
Bernard Challandes has no fresh injury concerns after Saturday's win over Czech Republic. Arijanet Muric of Manchester City and Bersant Celina of Swansea City are likely to feature.

Predicted XI: Muric; Vojvoda, Rhahmani, Aliti, Hadergjonaj; Voca, Halimi; Zhegrova, Celina, Rashani; Muriqi.

England team news
Gareth Southgate is expected to make a few changes from the side he selected to face Bulgaria. Jesse Lingard has returned to his club through illness.

Predicted XI: Pickford; Alexander-Arnold, Keane, Maguire, Chilwell; Henderson, Rice, Barkley; Sancho, Kane, Sterling.

Previous meetings
This will be the first time that England and Kosovo have faced off as Kosovo only gained official UEFA and FIFA membership in 2016.
Kosovo's form
Kosovo have won both of their last two qualifiers after securing a famous 3-2 win in Bulgaria in June, as well as defeating Czech Republic 2-1 on Saturday.

Kosovo are unbeaten in their last eight competitive games, having not lost during the Nations League nor their European Championship qualifying campaign.

England's form
Gareth Southgate's side have enjoyed a perfect start to their qualification campaign, securing three comfortable victories.

After putting five past both Czech Republic and Montenegro back in March, the Three Lions cruised to a 4-0 victory last Saturday courtesy of a Harry Kane hat-trick and a goal from Raheem Sterling.

How things stand
Both of tonight's teams come into the game having not lost in their respective qualifying campaigns to date.

England find themselves top of the pile with nine points from three games, one match fewer than their rivals.

Despite being ranked 120th in the world, Kosovo find themselves second in the group with eight points. Bernard Challandes' men have secured two wins and two draws from their four matches.
