England will look to maintain their perfect start to Euro 2016 qualification with a victory at home to Slovenia on Saturday, but the Three Lions certainly shouldn't be expecting an easy match. Slovenia have made a bright start to their and have won two of their opening three matches, including a surprise result against the group's second-strongest side, Switzerland.

Srečko Katanec boasts a very talented team, with some of the best players including Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanović and Red Bull Salzburg's young midfield prospect Kevin Kampl. What's more, England will be without Leighton Baines, Andros Townsend and Michael Carrick, who have all withdrawn from Roy Hodgson's squad with injury woes.

Key player - Wayne Rooney (England)

It is probably a damning indictment of the quality of England that a woefully inconsistent Wayne Rooney continues to be their important player. But it is true that the Manchester United forward can be a matchwinner, and has the sprinkling of stardust that can lead to the odd moment of brilliance. He'll be looking to mark his 100th cap against Slovenia with such a showing.

Key question - Can Samir Handanović keep England out?

Slovenia certainly represent something of a banana skin for England, but the Three Lions should still be able to dominate at Wembley. Roy Hodgson's side are still the better team, and they will no doubt create goalscoring chances. The man who Slovenia will be banking on to keep them out is one of the world's best goalkeepers, Samir Handanović. If he puts in a good showing, anything could happen.
