England Football Blog
EnglandFootballBlog.com – a blog with a spine dedicated to supporting and following England‘s blossoming, exciting, and often perplexing talent at youth level. Not to penny pinch ourselves, however, as you‘ll find we cover a wide range of football topics…from the women‘s game through to why Mark “Lawro” Lawrenson is best suited to not being on our television screens.
English Youth Football

…and a bit of Georgie Thompson
Saddle up, enjoy.
England Football Blog is the brainchild/aneurysm that was launched after realizing there was an absolute dearth of coverage for English football – particularly at youth level. Thus spawned England Football Blog.

England VS Estonia Preview: Rooney Ruled Out of Euro 2016 Qualifier
Posted on October 12, 2015
Having won three of their last meetings against Estonia, the Three Lions seems will be brewing with so much confidence as a victory over Estonia tonight will cement their place in the Euro 2016 Championship as top seeds and Expert football tips believe the Three Lions will get the much needed three points on offer.
After beating Switzerland, England cemented their place as first in the group ahead of five other contenders. The three Lions have now confirmed their place for the competition that will take place in the summer of next year in France.
Apparently, if England wins today’s game or the final game against Lithuania, they be drawn in pot one and this will see them avoid other big European teams like Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal and their likes in the group stage of the competition. Ladbrokes offer terms on England to be among one of the seeded teams for the championship.
About 12 months ago, Wayne Rooney’s brilliant free kick saw the three Lions got the better of Estonia in the reverse fixture and the player will be awarded with a golden boot by Sir Bobby Charlton for becoming the all time top scorer with 50 goals to his credit.
England Team News
England Captain Wayne Rooney will be unfit to face Estonia and Lithuania after the player picked up knock in Manchester United lost to Arsenal at the Emirates.
It is also reported that Jonjo Shelvey and Danny Ings are both back to training but the duo might be sitting out of the match over lack of fitness. Michael is also back to training but it is highly unlikely that he will play in the match even though he has been certified fit.
Stones will be visibly absent after the player picked up a knee injury during the Three Lions training session ahead of the match.
Estonia Team News
As for Estonia, all the players are available; no one is sidelined with injury of suspension.
For most pundit and fans of England, the match is as good as already won by the Three Lions. Anything short of that reason will be very disappointing. England have conceded no goal against Estonia in their last three encounters.
