Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 5pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on ITV 1 and ITV 1 HD.


Slovenia come into the game, second on points in the table, level with Switzerland and know they have a viable chance of making their way into the Euros should they beat England, their first since 2000. A lot of talk will be around the goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal.

Meanwhile, England are yet to suffer a single defeat in the current campaign, but will be without their highest scorer in the Euros, Danny Welbeck, who is out nursing an injury. Theo Walcott is expected to come into the side in his absence, with the speedster doing exceedingly well for Arsenal in their end of season blitz, which helped the Gunners win the FA Cup.

Jack Wilshere is also likely to make the squad as a deep lying playmaker alongside James Milner or Phil Jones, after coming back from suffering an ankle injury which kept him out for five months. It is England's best chance of proving their credentials in the international stage, having been knocked out of the World Cup in the group stages last year.
