F@I@F@A~England vs Moldova live stream soccer game tv coverage F.r.E.e .FIFA World Cup qualifying resumes on Friday with a slew of matches across Europe, many having serious implications on the qualification picture.
Manager Roy Hodgson is in a tricky predicament for England’s next two crucial qualifiers – two points back of group leaders Montenegro, albeit with a game in hand. A victory over the 123rd ranked Moldovans should be automatic, even with a somewhat depleted and inexperienced roster. Frank Lampard scored a brace in the 5-0 victory in the reverse fixture a year ago.
England vs Moldova
Match scheduled: Friday, September 6
From 01:00 to 03:00
Group H (Matchday 9) :: UEFA European FIFA World Cup 2014 Qualifying
Minus the 13 goals scored against lowly San Marino in two games, England has netted six times from open play in eight matches during Hodgson’s tenure. Their insufficient goal production shouldn’t be a problem on Friday, though the trip to Ukraine on Tuesday will test their resolve — especially without the services of Wayne Rooney, who will miss both matches because of a deep laceration to his forehead. Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out of the Moldova game due to injury. Glen Johnson and Phil Jones will also be missing due to injury, and Jermain Defoe and Jack Wilshere all rested during training earlier this week for various ailments.
Hodgson is forced to rely on Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott to provide the offence, and will hope Rickie Lambert can add to his England account after scoring the match-winner in his Three Lions debut against Scotland. At 31, the Southampton striker is making up for lost time and deserves the opportunity based on a stellar scoring record at club level. Other newbies added to the fold are Andros Townsend and Ross Barkley, both given their first call-ups to the senior squad by Hodgson.
