England wants to solidify the top spot in the group, and they can do so with a victory against Malta on Friday.

England has scored 10 goals over the course of their 6 qualifying games so far while allowing just 2 against. Malta, which has lost every qualifying game so far, has scored 2 goals while allowing 15.
