4,000 English supporters made their way to Malta for tonight’s match, as the Three Lions go head to head with Malta’s national team in what is one of the island’s biggest matches of the year.

Despite the major hype for tonight’s game, the match has been marred by scam ticket resales, with many failing to secure their spot to a sold-out Ta’ Qali National stadium.

Despite a minor landing issue requiring technical assistance, the England national team also arrived safely in Malta, with Phil Foden spotted chilling in his hotel balcony ahead of tonight’s game.

What do you think tonight’s score will be?
