England beat Kosovo 5-3 in wild Euro 2020 qualifier

Should Rashford be in the England Squad!? Does Mason Mount need to start!? Watford sack Gracia!

Rrahmani brought a pulsating run from England's Ross Barkley to a clumsy end on the edge of the penalty to give the home side a spot-kick after 63 minutes, but Harry Kane, who's penalty taking record has been nearly spotless over the previous year, saw his penalty saved by Arijanet Muric.

Valon Berisha took advantage of a careless pass from England defender Michael Keane to put Kosovo ahead inside the first minute, and also scored at the start of the second half with a curling effort into the top corner in the 49th.

Kosovo's Vedat Muriqi scores his side's third goal from the penalty spot during the 5-3 loss to England.

Marcus Rashford replaced Sancho to reunite the three that undid Bulgaria, and within seconds almost made a statement of his own only for his shot to be saved after a penetrating run.

And Sterling also went close to getting his second late on but he saw his effort strike the post.

England overcame the worst possible start to defeat Kosovo in an eight-goal thriller on Wednesday night.

England manager Gareth Southgate believes the road to major tournaments has become too easy and predictable for major European nations.

Iran President Rouhani rules out any bilateral talks with US
President Barack Obama, curbed Iran's nuclear work in exchange for the lifting of most worldwide sanctions in 2016. Tehran has announced a decision to further scale down its commitments to the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.

"I don't think you can have a player that is undroppable, because I think that's a risky route for any team and it's probably not healthy for any individual player", he added.

Keane would make amends soon after, though, heading back across goal to Sterling to redirect the ball into Kosovo's net with a header of his own to bring England level.

Raheem Sterling pulled the strings and 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho scored twice in a five-goal first half against a Kosovo team that had been flying high so far in qualifying.

Michael Keane, whose terrible pass had gifted Valon Berisha a well-taken opener after just 35 seconds, made amends with a strong header across the goal from a corner and Sterling was in the flawless place to nod in an equaliser from close range.

"As I said, I'm expecting an enjoyable game".

"For me it is a wonderful team but I have only this way in my head - I don't want to say to my team, "OK, we stay in our own half and defend, defend, defend" - I hope we can play and be an opponent, not a big opponent but and opponent with intensity".
