Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm GMT. Live coverage of the match will be available on ITV 1. Live Radio coverage is available on BBC Radio 5Live.


The Three Lions welcome the fourth placed team in Group E Lithuania, to Wembley for the European qualifier clash. England are still unbeaten in the group and lead with 12 points.

Roy Hodgson will hope that his team gets the required win to maintain their 100% record in the group. It will also move them one step closer to the Euro finals in France in 2016.

Saturday could see the manager hand debuts to Tottenham's Harry Kane, who has been exceptional for Tottenham this season and is currently the joint-top scorer in the Premier League.

The match also sees the return of Theo Walcott to the England set up after recovering from a knee injury that kept him out for over a year.

Meanwhile, Lithuania come into this game tied on points with Slovenia and Switzerland on six points and will hope to cause an upset and close the gap on runaway group leaders England.

The Lithuanians started their Euro 2016 qualifying in great style with two wins over San Marino and Estonia without conceding a goal, but lost their next two fixtures without scoring a goal against Switzerland and Slovenia.

What Managers Say

Roy Hodgson (England): "We must therefore approach this game with the same intensity that has seen us win each of our last six matches. The players have performed so well for England since the start of this season, their attitude and commitment has been plain to see and they have clearly enjoyed being part of what we are all trying to achieve."

Vytautas Andriuskevicius (Lithuania left-back): "Against these big teams, we just have to try and do our best. We don't go onto the pitch thinking we will press them and that we will win. If you look at the squads, there's a really big difference. Against England, it's a big game. It's a dream to play at Wembley against top players."
