ENGLAND have one foot on the plane to Russia and should clinch their place on Thursday.
Gareth Southgate's side realistically need a point thanks to their better goal difference but a victory at home to Slovenia will see them through even if Slovakia win away to Scotland.
As usual England are extremely short at a best 1-10 with sportingbet but they've won 13 home qualifiers in a row so that's why.
They made hard work of beating Slovakia 2-1 last month but got there in the end and they're a better side than Slovenia who arrive at Wembley needing a victory and another against Scotland on Sunday to have a chance of a play-off.
Slovenia held England 0-0 at home but their only recent away successes have been against Lithuania and minnows San Marino and Malta.
They lost and failed to score in 1-0 away defeats to Scotland and Slovakia and a 1-0 or 2-0 England win looks on the cards. A 1-0 pays 11-2 at BetStars and 2-0 is 5-1 at William Hill. England to win to nil is evens with McBookie and under 2.5 goals is 39-40 with 188Bet.
In those 13 home victories England have won by more than two and England -1 returns 21-20 with Betway but they'll need to get past the man some say is the best keeper in the world – Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.
Harry Kane will fancy his chances though after 13 goals in September and he is 5-2 at bet365 to open the scoring. Kane has been named captain and with the armband he netted against Scotland and Slovenia.
- England to win to nil
- Kane to score first
- Under 2.5 match goals
