England edge Slovakia but Antonio does not get debut

England edged Slovakia 1-0 in Trnava last night, but West Ham’s Michail Antonio failed to make it off the bench. Sam Allardyce’s men won thanks to Adam Lallana’s goal in the 5th minute of second half extra time, with the Slovaks having been reduced to ten men following the dismissal of Martin Skrtel.

England’s next qualifying game is against Malta at home.

Antonio however tweeted

Disappointed not to get on, but great to come away with the 3 points! #ThreeLions #England

Antonio 21
