BBC One Autumn 2007
Euro 2008 Autumn Qualifiers
England resume their Euro 2008 qualifying campaign
this autumn, with four home games
out of their remaining five left to play. Only the
top two teams go through to the next stage
of the tournament and England cannot afford to
drop any more points in their quest to
qualify for the finals.
All four of England's home games will be shown
live and exclusive on BBC One. Their
opening match is against Israel in September and
will be the first competitive game at the
redeveloped Wembley. England then take on Estonia,
Russia and Croatia in what will prove
to be a crucial final series of matches.
The Match Of The Day team, including Gary Lineker,
Alan Hansen, Alan Shearer and Mark
Lawrenson, will provide expert analysis and
comment on all the action on the field, as well
as results and updates from other key matches
