5 talking points ahead of England's 2020 qualifier against Kosovo

England reporter notebook Switch to a back three? Raheem Sterling one of the world's best? | Football News Should Rashford be in the England Squad!? Does Mason Mount need to start!? Watford sack Gracia!

Kosovo are to wear a special edition shirt created by Swiss kit supplier 14Fourteen for Tuesday night's Euro 2020 qualifier against England at St Mary's in Southampton. Continuing that run over Kosovo, the team now occupying second spot, would give Southgate's side control of the group ahead of an away double-header against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria next month.

Jadon Sancho netted his first England goal after being played in by Sterling and the two combined again just minutes later.

The England manager is concerned that Rashford, who is playing as the main striker for Manchester United this season but is out wide for his country, too often prefers dropping back to receive the ball rather than using his impressive pace to trouble opposition defenders.

"Before the game, my coaches were sitting down to watch the game and I said, "I'm expecting you to come and tell me Kosovo win", because I've watched all of the matches, every game, and the level of performance has been consistent".

And Sterling also went close to getting his second late on but he saw his effort strike the post.

Harry Maguire took down Vedat Muriqi in the box and he would go on to dispatch his penalty past Pickford.

Reaching the Euro 2020 finals always looked on the cards for England but they have made light work of their competition in Group A, scoring 19 goals already and winning all four of their games, although defensive weaknesses were exposed here.

Kane's hat-trick against Bulgaria puts him 14th in England's all-time list of goalscorers, while Sterling has also rediscovered his scoring touch at global level, netting his seventh goal in as many caps. On current form, few players in the world are as unsafe as the City star, who it is easy to forget is only 24 years old.

England last lost a World Cup/Euro qualifying match ten years ago against Ukraine and have since been unbeaten in 42 such games.

The result puts England firmly in control of Group A on 12 points, with the Three Lions next in action against Czech Republic on October 11.

- Raheem Sterling has been involved in 12 goals in his last eight England worldwide appearances (eight goals, four assists).
