Saints look set to host Kosovo; FOOTBALL SHORTS ENGLAND.

SOUTHAMPTON'S St Mary's Stadium is the frontrunner to host England's Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo.

Gareth Southgate's men won 5-1 in Montenegro last week after kicking off their European Championship campaign with a 5-0 victory against the Czech Republic at Wembley.

The FA announced in March England's third home qualifier would be played away from the national stadium - and St Mary's is in the box seat to host the Kosovo match on September 10.

It was in Southampton where the Three Lions were held to a 2-2 draw by Macedonia in 2002.

England will take on Bulgaria at Wembley on September 7 in their first match after June's inaugural Nations League Finals.
