England resume their 2016 Euro qualifying campaign with a home game against Lithuania as the Three Lions look to cement their place at the top of their group.

After a disappointing show in the 2014 World Cup, where they were unable to progress beyond the group stages, England have been doing pretty well, recording consecutive victories in their last six international fixtures.

As a result, the Three Lions are currently at the top of their 2016 Euro qualifying group, having beaten the likes of Switzerland, San Marino, Estonia and Slovenia in their first four fixtures.

Now England are expected to easily beat the fourth placed Lithuania, and head coach Roy Hodgson insists that his side are fully prepared for this tie.

"We know a lot about them [Lithuania], we've been through their style of play, their players, we think we know enough about them," the former Liverpool boss told Reuters.

"I hope we know enough but more importantly we hope our players are prepared to do what we want to do and play the game we want to play and hope that causes Lithuania the problems we intend to cause them."

With Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge ruled out of the international fixtures due to a hip injury, all eyes are on Tottenham Hotspur's in form striker Harry Kane.

However, despite admitting that Kane has been doing very well, Hodgson refused to reveal whether the young striker would be making his international debut against Lithuania.

"We are very happy with Harry Kane. He has done well all week, and has not in any way damaged his chances of playing in the full senior team," Hodgson added.

"I'm pretty sure over the course of these two games he will make his full debut, but I'm not prepared to give my selection away and when that is people will have to wait and see."

Meanwhile, Lithuania will also be hoping to pick up some points against England despite them being the underdogs on Friday.

Lithuania have been doing pretty decently in the 2016 Euro qualifiers, having record two wins and two defeats in the competition so far.

Although they are tied on points with the likes of Switzerland and Slovenia, they are currently behind the two sides in fourth place due to their inferior goal difference.

Lithuania are not excepted to beat England on Friday, but defender Marius Zaliukas says that he is determined to prove everyone wrong.

"Probably all of the country is expecting an easy game," the Glasgow Rangers centre-back told the Mirror. "Everyone in Scotland is laughing, because they expect it to be a big score. We want to disappoint them."

"We understand who are the favourites. People do not expect us to win. But the first 10 or 15 minutes will be important – if we are going to keep them quiet, we can make them nervous."

The 31-year-old insists that his side will be looking to take advantage of any mistakes made by the Three Lions on Friday.

"Then they might make mistakes and we can take advantage of that. The result is important. You can't go to a game thinking you are going to lose."

Expected Lineups:

England:Hart; Clyne, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Henderson, Carrick, Milner; Sterling; Rooney, Kane

Lithuania: Arlauskis, Vicius, Freidgeimas, Kijanskas, Zulpa, Vaitkunas, Matulevicius, Panka, Chvedukas, Cernych, Andriuskeviciu
