Andorra 0-5 England LIVE! World Cup qualifier result, match stream and latest updates today

Andorra vs England - LIVE!

England are looking to move a step closer to qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as they take on Andorra tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s side beat the minnows 4-0 at Wembley during the last international break, though they struggled to turn their superiority into goals until late on on that occasion.

As with that fixture, Southgate is expected to give several of his fringe players the opportunity to impress this evening, despite the fact that the Three Lions only play twice during this international break.

That the game is going ahead at all is a relief, given the way preparations were disrupted on Friday by a fire at the National Stadium.

The broadcast gantry was engulfed in flames just hours after the Three Lions had been training at the stadium, with reporters watching on dumbfounded before the fire was brought under control.

FULL TIME | Andorra 0-5 England

21:38 , Jack Rosser

You can’t get much more comfortable than that, a thoroughly good showing from England.

GOAL! Andorra 0-5 England

21:32 , Jack Rosser

86 mins: Grealish gets his first England goal! A superb throw from Sam Johnstone sends him through on the break and Grealish manages to go alone and finish.

WATCH: Ward-Prowse makes it four

21:30 , Jack Rosser

Quick reactions from Ward-Prowse

GOAL! Andorra 0-4 England

21:25 , Jack Rosser

79 mins: Ward-Prowse makes it four! The Southampton midfielder sees his penalty saved but follows up and finishes after the goalkeeper parried the spot kick.

21:22 , Jack Rosser

78 mins: Penalty England! Grealish drives into the box and is brought down by Rubio.

James Robson in Andorra...

21:18 , Jack Rosser

Southgate making changes now. There will be more space to exploit the more tired Andorra get and Mount and Grealish could be the men to do that.

21:17 , Jack Rosser

73 mins: A couple of attacking changes for England now as Grealish and Mount are sent on in place of Sancho and Lingard.

21:14 , Jack Rosser

69 mins: England have something to worry about for a rare spell as Andorra win a couple of corners but both are well dealt with.

WATCH: Abraham makes it three

21:08 , Jack Rosser

Abraham makes the lead more comfortable.

GOAL! Andorra 0-3 England

21:05 , Jack Rosser

59 mins: Tammy Abraham gets his goal! A fine cross from Sancho on the left and Abraham moves ahead of his marker and pokes in.

James Robson in Andorra...

21:02 , Jack Rosser

Foden is pulling out his bag of tricks here. A drag back here, a no-look pass there. He’s enjoying himself and no doubt has the added incentive of making Andorra pay for some of their attempts to physically bully him.

20:59 , Jack Rosser

54 mins: England edging closer. Foden sends one well over the bar before Ward-Prowse plays in Abraham but his effort is wayward too.

20:56 , Jack Rosser

51 mins: Not too much action so far with England dominating and Andorra sitting tighter than ever. These are the chances for the likes of Lingard and Sancho to make their mark.

SECOND HALF

20:50 , Jack Rosser

England get things going again

WATCH: Saka makes it two

20:46 , Jack Rosser

How about that ball from Foden...

James Robson in Andorra...

20:41 , Jack Rosser

What a night Foden is having. It is easy to say he should impress against the likes of Andorra, but he is the man making sure this is as straight-forward a night as it is meant to be. He has been the architect of both of England’s goals this half, with his pass to Saka a work of art.

HALF TIME | Andorra 0-2 England

20:34 , Jack Rosser

England ahead after goals from Chilwell and Saka capped a dominant first half. There will be a few in the squad who fancy their chances of getting a goal after the break.

20:32 , Jack Rosser

45+1 mins: Sancho is booked after some needless pushing and shoving during a break in play.

GOAL! Andorra 0-2 England

20:27 , Jack Rosser

40 mins: Saka doubles the lead! It’s another mouthwatering ball from Foden over the top for the Arsenal winger and he caps it off with a finish at the near post.

James Robson in Andorra...

20:20 , Jack Rosser

There have been some pretty cynical tackles from Andorra. Foden has not been happy with some of the treatment he’s been given and they are not shy about leaving a little extra on their challenges.

They may be minnows, but they are not entirely naive.

20:16 , Jack Rosser

30 mins: Andorra forced into an early change as Garcia is replaced by the 41-year-old Lima.

WATCH: Chilwell bags England opener

20:14 , Jack Rosser

Here is how England took the lead with Ben Chilwell’s first goal for his country.

James Robson in Andorra...

20:12 , Jack Rosser

Could this be a turning point for Chilwell? He’s gone from Champions League winner to outsider for club and country.

He is only in the squad because of injury to James, but that is the way to make a statement.

It is notable that Foden’s diagonal balls have been the way England have looked to open up Andorra so far and it is something they have struggled to contain.

20:09 , Jack Rosser

23 mins: Nearly two! Sancho finds Abraham but the Roma striker fires straight at the goalkeeper

GOAL! Andorra 0-1 England

20:05 , Jack Rosser

18 mins: It’s given! The chance came about from another fine ball from Foden, who has really impressed so far.

20:03 , Jack Rosser

17 mins: Ruled out! Chilwell has the ball in the back of the next after being teed up by Sancho but the flag is up quickly and it’s ruled out for offside. VAR are checking the call...

19:58 , Jack Rosser

13 mins: Another chance for Chilwell! A fantastic ball from Foden into the far post but the left-back’s header is wide. Should have tested the goalkeeper there.

19:54 , Jack Rosser

8 mins: England find a rare pocket of space at the back as Lingard has the chance to release Saka but it’s a poor ball and the chance goes begging.

19:51 , Jack Rosser

5 mins: As expected it’s all England so far and the Three Lions have tested the defence with a couple of good crosses from set pieces from Ward-Prowse. Chilwell gets in behind but can’t bring the ball under control.

Gareth Southgate has been speaking to ITV before kick-off.

On the plastic pitch...

"They are used to playing on this type of surface, it is a bit unusual but it's not an excuse."

On chances for Jadon Sancho...

"This is the type of game where we need players who are good in those one against one situations and in between the lines. We want to see them try things."

Tonight could prove a chance for Jadon Sancho to spark his season into life.

The winger has endured a slow start to life as a Manchester United player and is yet to score for his new club. Against opposition like Andorra, he will be hoping to make a mark and get things going.

Early team news

England are expected to use this fixture to experiment. Captain Harry Kane may not be risked due to concerns over his ankles on the artificial surface, while Aaron Ramsdale could make his debut in goal.

Kalvin Phillips’ withdrawal from the squad could force Southgate to pick Declan Rice in an otherwise mostly changed side.

Andorra have three players suspended for this fixture due to picking up to ma

Albert Alavedra, Marcio Vieira and Moises San Nicolas will all miss out.
