England’s World Cup 2018 campaign gets underway this evening with a Group F qualifier against Slovakia.
The match takes place at the Stadion Antona Malatinskeho in Trnava and will be shown exclusively live on ITV.
This is Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of the Three Lions.
The former Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United and Sunderland boss replaced Roy Hodgson following England’s dismal 2-1 defeat by Iceland at Euro 2016, and will be hoping to make a good first impression here.
These sides played out a disappointing 0-0 draw in the group stage of that same tournament in the summer.
Mark Pougatch will be live on ITV and ITV HD from 4.30pn, where he’ll be joined live in the studio by Ian Wright and Lee Dixon.
Match commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle. Kick-off 5.00pm.
The match will also be streamed live on the ITV Hub and there’ll be highlights on ITV from 10.20pm tonight!
