Three Lions to play Euro Qualifier with Kosovo at Southampton's St. Mary's Stadium

England will be under the lights at St. Mary's Stadium when they host Kosovo in September

England will head to Southampton for their Euro Qualifier with Kosovo in September.

Taking place at St. Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday 10 September 2019, it will be the first time England have played at the venue since October 2002 when Macedonia held Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side to a 2-2 draw.

Both the women's senior team and men’s U21s and have played there in more recent years, but it’s now the turn of Gareth Southgate’s side to return to the south coast as they look to build on their convincing start to EURO 2020 qualification.

It will be a historical occasion too, being England’s first-ever game with Kosovo since they were affiliated with UEFA and FIFA in 2016.

Since then, they've made an impressive start to life on the international stage and topped their UEFA Nations League group in undefeated fashion to at least secure a UEFA EURO 2020 play-off.
