August 21, 2013, 8:50 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- On Friday 6th September, England are set to face Moldova at Wembley, in a World Cup qualifying match widely expected to end in a comfortable win for the home nation, if last year's 5-0 victory over the footballing minnows at the Zimbru Stadium is anything to go by. The game will kick off at around 7.45pm, and travelling fans have learned of a number of discounted London hotels close to the stadium, announced in partnership with information and booking website LondonTown.com.
Roy Hodgson's side go on to face their main Group H rivals Ukraine four days later in Kiev. The impending tough tie might prompt the Three Lions to play a little more cautiously against the Moldovans, but anything less than a convincing win will be considered a disappointment for fans.
If England can see off Moldova and Ukraine, they need only despatch group leaders Montenegro on October 11th to be assured of a place at the finals in Brazil next year. Three successive wins would take the pressure off during the recently announced final qualifying match against Poland, which will be played at Wembley on October 15th.
Hodgson's players are currently sitting in second place, two points behind Montenegro and one ahead of Ukraine, with four matches remaining. In preparation for the upcoming qualifiers, England will meet Scotland in an international friendly, taking place in front of an 80,000-strong crowd at Wembley.
The recently re-opened Wembley Stadium is the second largest in Europe, and sits in North London, easily accessible via public transport from the city centre. To coincide with the Moldova match, LondonTown.com have announced a number of discounts on London hotels close to the stadium.
