England vs North Macedonia LIVE stream: Scores and updates from Euro 2024 qualifier as Kane and Saka score

Trent “deserves the credit he gets and the rest is noise” – Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate is likely to change his England squad when they take on North Macedonia in a Euro 2024 qualifier at Old Trafford tonight.

England beat Malta 4-0 on Friday, continuing their 100 per cent winning streak in qualifying. They are top of Group C ahead of North Macedonia’s visit. The Three Lions can now secure their fourth consecutive win in Euro 2024 qualifiers after beating Italy and Ukraine.

Questions remain about Bukayo Saka’s fitness after he left the field at half-time against Malta and there are a number of squad players hoping to make the starting XI tonight.

Marcus Rashford is one of them, but he faces competition from Jack Grealish and James Maddison, while Gareth Southgate must decide whether to return Trent Alexander-Arnold to midfield after his excellent performance last time out in Malta.

Follow the action as England take on North Macedonia at Old Trafford:


GOAL! England 2-0 North Macedonia (Saka, 38′)

38 mins: Quality from England.

Trent Alexander-Arnold receives the ball on the edge of the box and plays it to Kyle Walker, who shoots forward on the overlap.

Walker passes the ball inside to Bukayo Saka, who spins and puts a shot into the net with his weaker foot.
