Gareth Southgate is keen for his England players to excite the Wembley crowd during Monday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier with Slovakia.
England were underwhelming in Malta on Friday when three late goals gave them a flattering 4-0 victory.
They lead Group F by two points and a win over second-placed Slovakia will leave them on the cusp of qualifying for next summer’s finals in Russia.
“We have some exciting players and we want to show that,” said Southgate.
“We have a responsibility to get the Wembley crowd on their feet but equally, everywhere we go in the world the home crowd give the team a lift. It will be great if we can get the level of support that stadium can bring.
“The whole country wants to be at the World Cup. It is a great opportunity for us.
“We are playing good opposition so we have to make sure we are tactically prepared, which we will be, but also have belief in the team we have got.”
Victory for England on Monday will take them five points clear of their opponents with two games left to play. (BBC)
