Euro 2020 qualifier preview: England v Bulgaria

Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane vowed to bounce back from England's shock defeat to the Czech Republic by getting their Euro 2020 qualification campaign back on track in Bulgaria.

After 43 unbeaten matches stretching across a 10-year period, the Three Lions finally lost a European or World Cup qualifier as the Czechs capitalised on the visitors' surprisingly lacklustre performance in Prague.
