Ladbrokes offer 25/1 odds on all Home Nations to reach World Cup 2018

World Cup Betting
There were positive starts by the home nations in World Cup 2018 qualification and online betting site Ladbrokes have slapped a price of 25/1 on all four of them reaching the Finals in a couple year. The last time that England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland were all at a major final was back at the World Cup in Sweden 1958. So it’s been a long, long wait to see them all line up again, but with positive starts to qualifying, can they all make it there? England needed a late strike by Adam Lallana to secure a win out in Slovakia, which arguably will be their toughest game of qualification. So with that out of the way and a relatively easy group to navigate their way through, the Three Lions remain a strong shot at 1/7 to win their World Cup 2018 qualification group which contains Scotland as well. England won all ten of their Euro 2016 qualification matches and will expect to unopposed to bank the automatic qualification spot. As a result of their 5-1 win over Malta, Scotland have been trimmed to 8/1 to win Group F of World Cup 2018 qualification. Of course there will be tougher matches to come than the whipping boys that are Malta, but the Scots did a good job against a lowly side who generally don’t ship a lot of goals. So the big win put them to the top of their qualification group after one match played. The top side from each of the qualification groups go through to the 2018 World Cup, while the best eight runners up will move through to a play off round. Wales, who had that brilliant run to the semi finals of Euro 2016 got their World Cup 2018 qualification campaign off to a flier with a 4-0 home win over minnows Moldova, with Gareth Bale netting a brace in the match. The Welsh will still have to do battle with Austria, Ireland and Serbia to try and make their way through to the World Cup Finals, but that was a great start from Chris Coleman’s men, who must still be running in high confidence after their exploits in the summer. Northern Ireland battled their way to a point against the Czech Republic to open their qualification campaign with, with wasn’t a bad point out on the road in the grand scheme of things. But perhaps like Scotland, they will be chasing a place at the World Cup 2018 through the play off round, because powerhouses Germany reside in their qualification group, the Germans opening with a comfortable 3-0 win over Norway. In addition to the Home Nations, you can also take a price of 5/2 on the Republic of Ireland to qualify from Group D, the Irish opening their campaign with a 2-2 draw at Serbia.

Ladbrokes Slovakia v England betting Monday Back Special for a draw

England were hugely successful in their Euro 2016 qualification campaign, landing ten wins from ten. They opened with a road win over Switzerland which came after they had failed miserably at the 2014 World Cup. So maybe some history will repeat itself here, by winning out in Slovakia after their miserable Euro 2016 campaign. Can England kick off their Russia 2018 qualifying campaign with a win on the board? They are running at around even money to pick up maximum points from this one. Slovakia frustrated and annoyed England at Euro 2016 in the group stage. England managed to get off 28 shots against Slovakia but still failed to hit the back of the net, Slovakia mustering up just the four shots in response. So will England be able to dial in their composure and quality in front of goal and get their qualifying campaign off to a winning start? This is big Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge of the Three Lions and the pressure will be just that little bit less on him being out on the road. Can England grind out a win or will they be frustrated by the Slovakians again?

Slovakia v England Predictions & Betting Odds – 4th September 2016

World Cup Betting
Slovakia v England Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifier 4th September Can new England boss Sam Allardyce get off to a winning start then? His first competitive game in charge comes against Slovakia on Sunday in the first World Cup 2018 qualifying match for the Three Lions. England faced Slovakia at Euro 2016 in the group stage and despite being dominant couldn’t find a way to break their resistance and had to settle for a hugely disappointing 0-0 draw at the end of the day. Slovakia have won just the one of their last five games played though and England go as favourites here. The Three Lions won all five of their away games in Euro 2016 qualifying, can they land a win here?

Slovakia v England Betting Tips

Slovakia will be hoping to pick up from where they left off at Euro 2016 by frustrating England. They aren’t a side who are in any kind of great form at the moment with a W2 D2 L2 record over their last six games. In their final group stage match of Euro 2016, Slovakia conceded 28 shots against a much changed England set up and only managed the four themselves. They weren’t in the contest but still managed to get a 0-0 draw from the match. So this may not be the easiest of openers for new England boss Sam Allardyce. Slovakia don't look an overly convincing side, there’s not a lot of balance and they can look a very scrappy side at times. But they beat Russia at Euro 2016 and were a little unlucky to lose against Wales. They have played host to England just once before and they lost that fixture 2-1. That was back in the Euro 2004 qualifiers. From the four previous matches that these two have contested against each other, England are ahead with a W3 D1 L0 record. So after another hugely dispiriting summer tournament, England have to start all over again. There has not really been a big shake up of the squad at all from new boss Sam Allardyce, other than tossing a debut call up to West Ham Michail Antonio. So it basically same-old same-old from England as they head into this qualifier. That’s not a bad thing because they were great through qualification for Euro 2016 and that appears to be whether their strengths are. They won all ten of their Euro 2016 qualification matches of course and three points here would give them huge confidence. England go into this with a W3 D2 L1 record in their last six games played and will likely have their tails up because of the new manager and trying to impress him. No room for complacency with Allardyce around. Up in the anytime goalscorer market for the the match you have Daniel Sturridge and Harry Kane are 15/8 joint favourites, with Jamie Vardy at and Wayne Rooney at 9/4. Under 2.5 goals on Slovakia v England betting is going to return you a quote of 8/15 so it’s clear what the bookmakers think of this one. There is a big price of 11/10 on both teams to score in this one so it pretty much says that they are expecting a tight game. That means that you are going to go and find some value in the Correct Score market where an England 1-0 correct score is trading at a price of 9/2 as the shorted option in the market, with England 2-0 at 15/2. The margin of victory is highly unlikely to get any bigger than that. This is just about getting a win on the board as away games in qualification are always are. It’s not about the performances really out on the road, it’s digging in, staying strong and doing a professional job. Sam Allardyce likes the tough, tricky scraps and this may be a good game for him to get his feet under the table in his new job. England are 2/1 to win to nil after shutting out Slovakia in their last two meetings.

Slovakia v England Betting Odds

England even money, Draw 11/5, Slovakia 3/1

Slovakia v England Predictions

Not the easiest of openers then because of how Slovakia frustrated England at Euro 2016. But a lot of that was down to Roy Hodgson and his team selections and tactics. So there are plenty of reasons for England to be positive heading into this one and players usually have their tails up for the first game under a new boss. England 1-0 correct score looks a great option to roll with this for this one.

World Cup Qualification 2018 Groups Europe – Betting Odds & Predictions

World Cup Betting
The two year road to the World Cup Finals in Russia starts this month for the UEFA members. Qualification gets under way and there are a total of 54 teams in the hunt for a spot at the tournament in 2018. The qualification draw was separated out over six seeding pots and the teams were then dealt out into nine groups of six teams each. 52 nations were actually in the seedings but then with FIFA accepting both Gibraltar and Kosovo as members in mid 2016, they were both allowed to join qualification as well. So the set up for all of this is that the winners of each of the nine groups will automatically get their spot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and then the best eight runners up from the group stage will go into the play off round. So there is a long quest to get the Finals and the top nine seeded nations in the draw, therefore being separated out into one for each group are Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, England, Wales, Spain and Croatia. One the group stage has been settled the draw for the play off round will be held in October of 2017.

World Cup Qualification Groups 2018 Europe

FIFA World Cup Qualification 2018 Europe Infographic Euro 2016 qualification was a huge success for the home nations, with England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland all making it to the Finals. How many of the home nations will make it through to the World Cup Finals? Will there be a full house? Four of the five would be another fantastic return for the UK and Ireland. Here we preview the qualification groups from the UEFA Zone for World Cup 2018 qualification. Group A Netherlands, France, Sweden, Bulgaria, Belarus, Luxembourg Well this is an interesting group and it would be a sparse if the French didn’t roll to top spot in it. Les Bleus almost landed the Euro 2016 title on home soil and on the evidence of that short burst of competitive football for them, they looked as if they still had some room to grow. So this could be a big two years for them in their development not having had to play qualifying games to get to the European Championships. The Netherlands are in there as well and it will be really interesting to see if they can pick themselves up after their miserable qualification campaign for Euro 2016. They may not still be at the races and that could leave a scrap between themselves and Sweden to battle for second spot. The Swedes are entering the post-Ibrahimovic era and may struggle. France to win the group at 8/13, Netherlands for second. Group B Portugal, Switzerland, Hungary, Faro Island, Latvia, Andorra The reigning European Champions Portugal will have to be pretty happy with the draw that they have received. They really have little threat going against them in here and that is reflected in the price of 8/13 for them to win the group. Switzerland are their closest challengers in there but rarely raise themselves above mediocrity, although they are usually pretty solid in qualification. Hungary, who impressed at Euro 2016 have to start again and while they are capable of points at home against the Portuguese and Swiss, are likely to miss the boat in this one. Everyone else in the group is just there making up the numbers. Not likely to be the most entertaining of groups. Group C Germany, Czech Republic, Northern Ireland, Norway, Azerbaijan, San Marino The huge benefit of being a top seeded team is obviously getting easier qualification draws. That is what Germany have here. They may have stubborn defences in the likes of Northern Ireland and Norway to break down, but they are Germany and should get it done, particularly at home. The Germans are a massive 1/8 odds on favourite to win this group and any other outcome looks like it would take something out of the ordinary to happen. The Czech Republic aren’t good enough to really lay claim to the top spot in the group but could see themselves in a fight with Northern Ireland and Norway for second place. Northern Ireland are a big 10/1 shot to make it out of the group. Group D Wales, Austria, Serbia, Republic of Ireland, Moldova, Georgia This is one of the more competitive groups that are floating around in the qualification for the World Cup from the UEFA Zone. Wales, who covered themselves in glory at Euro 2016 by reaching the semi finals are an even money quote to qualify from Group D. They are running as 7/4 favourites to win this group, but punters will still be bit wary because of the lack of goals from them and wondering if their bubble will have burst after the Euros. There is stiff competition from the technically solid Serbia, the young and enterprising Austria as well as having to do battle with the Republic of Ireland who are only 11/4 to qualify. On paper out of the bunch of them Serbia at 5/2 represents great value here to top the pile, but the Austrians can’t be counted out. They are way better than how they played at Euro 2016. Group E Romania, Denmark, Poland, Montenegro, Armenia, Kazakhstan Where does the favouritism fall in this one? Well it’s not too hard to pick Poland out as the stand out quality side here. They really didn’t shine as well as many would have hoped at Euro 2016 as they went more defensive than they were during qualification. Still, they are a postive 11/8 price to win Group E and that screams value here. Denmark are awkward opposition but nothing more and then Romania may have their say in patches. But the home form of Poland and the goals of Robert Lewandowski should push them to a comfortable top spot. It may be worth having a flutter on Romania to sneak past Denmark because they have come on well the last couple of years with Denmark really stagnating. Group F England, Slovakia, Scotland, Slovenia, Lithuania, Malta England are 4/11 odds on favourites to win this group and given how easily qualifying for Euro 2016 was for them it would be tough to go against them. Big Sam Allardyce should benefit from a pretty easy group draw here and there appears to be very little to topple England here. Perhaps the only thing is will be them beating themselves through complacency. But really the perceived threats from Slovakia, Scotland and SLovenia aren’t great at all. It would be a shocker if England didn't win this group while Scotland are a bit of a distant 4/1 shot to qualify for Group F. There’s a lot of work there for the Scots to do. Group G Spain, Italy, Albania, Israel, Macedonia, Liechtenstein Thankfully Spain and Italy were drawn together here to give this group a bit of spice or else it would have been a non-starter. Spain are 1/2 still to get the group win on the board, but the Italians are always efficient enough through qualifying for tournaments to keep their neck in the race. Italy though will now have lost the special touch of Antonio Conte so how will that affect them? But Spain too enter a new era as well after Vicente del Bosque stepped down leaving new head coach Julen Lopetegui in charge. You would expect the Spaniards to pretty much carry on regardless, more so than Italy but the games between the two of them should be a real highlight of World Cup qualifying. The Italians are 13/8 to win the group. There will be one big nation guaranteed to have to go through the play offs. Spain or Italy? Toss of a coin. Group H Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Estonia, Cyprus, Gibraltar As with most qualification groups there is a strong favourite set to run away with things and here that would be Belgium who are 2/7 favourites to win Group H. They should do just that unopposed really. It’s hard to really even see Bosnia-Herzegovina putting up enough to really get anywhere near to Belgium in this group so the rest have no chance. The Red Devils with new boss Roberto Martinez in charge, should be super comfortable in this one. Whoever comes runner up from this group may struggle to make it as one of the best eight to reach the play offs. Very poor group. Gibraltar make their World Cup qualifying debuts in this group. Group I Croatia, Iceland, Ukraine, Turkey, Finland, Kosovo Group H has Gibraltar making their debut, while Group I have Kosovo making theirs. Croatia, who really should have gone further at the summer’s European Championships are 11/10 to win this group. The Ukraine are there at 3/1 with Turkey just a little longer at 10/3. Turkey are hit and miss and only scraped over the finish line in their Euro 2016 qualifying group because of the Netherlands’ deficiencies, while the Ukraine don’t generally offer much away from home. You even have Iceland in her, remarkable Euro 2016 quarter finalists but while the slick Croatians should win the group, picking a second place team of the Ukraine, Turkey and Iceland is tough. For value would run with the Turks.

Allardyce announces England squad ahead of World Cup 2018 qualifiers

Football News
Sam Allardyce has announced his first ever England squad. The Three Lions step out for a World Cup qualifier against Slovakia on September 4th, the first competitive game in charge for the new manager after taking over follow Roy Hodgson's disastrous tactical stint at Euro 2016. There were never likely to be wholesale changes to the squad, but Allardyce has handed out a first call up to West Ham winger Michail Antonio. He is the only new cap in the 23 man squad, while some noticeable absentees are Ross Barkley and Jack Wilshere, the latter’s inclusion in the England Euro 2016 squad raising eyebrows after having missed so much for the domestic season through injury. So it is Antonio who is the big story of Allardyce’s first nations squad, the Irons player having come through the ranks plying his trade through non-league football and now all the way up to International level. So that’s a long journey up for him in the ranks to the pinnacle of the game. Allardyce has called up Manchester City’s Joe Hart, the keeper having been moved down the pecking order by Pep Guardiola after a miserable Euro 2016 showing as well. Manchester United’s youngster Marcus Rashford does not get in the full squad but goes to the U21 squad. After much debate amongst punters and critics, Wayne Rooney is in the squad. Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Joe Hart (Manchester City), Tom Heaton (Burnley). Defenders: Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur). Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Michail Antonio (West Ham United), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Theo Walcott (Arsenal). Strikers: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City). England are even money favourites for their trip to Slovakia on September 4th. This shouldn't be too much of a troublesome trip for England who have won three of their four previous games against the Slovakians.The last time that they did come together though was of course at Euro 2016 when England turned out a dire performance in their third and final group stage match to play out a 0-0 draw with them. A disastrous result it turned out to be, leaving Wales to win the group and that was all brought about by Hodgdon making so many changes to the starting eleven which had just beaten the Welsh in the previous game. What the most interesting thing about this really will be what influence Allardyce has over the side. Will there be a more direct route being shown by the new boss as opposed to England trying to match the elite in the world by knocking it around on the deck? You can probably expect a lot more fight and fire in the Slovakia. Register an account with online betting site Bet365 and you will have 0-0 bore draw insurance coverage running on all the international games that are coming up and you will have access to live streams as well!

Big Sam the man for England? Allardyce 5/4 favourite for top job

Football Betting
Sam Allardyce seems to have risen to the top of the charts in the Next England Manager betting market. The 61 year old, currently manager of Sunderland is apparently in the running for the picture and some reports have him being interviewed by the FA along with Jurgen Klinsmann this week. Other reports are saying that Allardyce hasn’t even been contacted by the FA yet about the vacancy left behind by Roy Hodgson's drastic failure at Euro 2016. There has been such a nod towards Allardyce that he is in at a price of 5/4 with online betting site Skybet to take England’s top job. That is a drastic chop on him because at the start of July he was a big 10/1 shot with some bookmakers. Allardyce has been in management for over 20 years and had success this year in keeping Sunderland afloat in the Premier League. A passionate man, he would earn the respect the of the players in any England camp pretty quickly. Of course though, you think of Allardyce and don’t immediately think style. There is a more grassroots feel about his style, not afraid to defend for long periods and play the long ball forwards. Allardyce would work the England side and may be a huge benefit to the overall set up. England are not a top side at the moment and someone different has to come in and shake them up, get the best out of them. The other alternative it would seem, is Jurgen Klinsmann, the current USA boss. He was part of the overhaul of German football which led them to their stylish set up that they have now, but while he was at the front, most of the credit for the positive chances was given to Joachim Low, who was working alongside Klinsmann. The big German would immediately have more appeal in terms of style, but the basics of his game is counter attacking football. So not too different from Allardyce really. England have failed before with the likes of Sven Goran Eriksson, Fabio Capello and Roy Hodgson and having another man at the top come in and worry more about style than substance could be an issue which holds ENgland back. England need to look forward, look to someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty at a lower level, because frankly, England aren’t going to win a major tournament anytime soon. So could Allardyce be the right man?

Gareth Southgate favourite in Next England Manager betting

Football Betting
England’s troubles may just be starting following their shock exit from Euro 2016. With Roy Hodgson stepping down from his managerial role, the FA now have a tough task of trying to find someone to replace him. However, the list of candidates that jumped to the fore of punters minds immediately after Hodgson's resignation, was a bit uninspiring to say the least. Gareth Southgate was immediately placed into a position of favouritism at online betting site Sky Bet. The England Under 21 manager has worked with the English set up therefore of course and would be a familiar face. But this is a big step up for him and this is walking into some high pressure. Gary Neville’s name has been touted around as well, and the former Manchester United man is a 10/1 shot alongside Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew. The issue for England is that they now need not only a strong candidate to really shake things up, but they need someone who understands and is prepared to work with the strengths of the English players. A lot of England’s failings at Euro 2016 was put down to Hodgdon not knowing what his best side and setup was and didn’t play to strengths of a lot his players. So whoever the man is that they bring in, he is going to have pick the country up off its knees and that will take someone strong, someone prepared to shake the ship a little bit after conservative spells from Fabio Capello and Hodgson. But where can England find that man? Jose Mourinho is now in a job with Manchester United and is a 33/1 punt to bypass that and join England, while Arsene Wenger is a 28/1 shot. Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe and Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is a 16/1 punt. The man to do it may be Alan Shearer, who went for the job before Hodgson did. Sharecare is 6/1 to get the job. The TV pundit is someone who could get the dressing room fired up, and would bring a bit of passion to the sidelines no doubt. Shearer is a straight shooter and isn’t afraid to mix his words and that humble, truthful approach could be just what England need, but of course, he hasn’t the managerial experience to take into it. Maybe they will be a little braver, with home grown options looking a bit thin on the ground and follow in the footsteps of England’s rugby team who have installed Australian Eddie Jones as manager and reaped immediate benefits from that. The top options there would probably be Jurgen Klinsmann, current USA boss at 25/1, while Laurent Blanc has just left PSG and could be a coup at 28/1 odds. Or there is the ever popular Guus Hiddink as well at 33/1 or a great capture for them could be prying Slaven Bilic away from West Ham at 28/1.

Next England Boss Odds

Gareth Southgate 11/8, Alan Shearer 6/1, Eddie Howe 12/1, Alan Pardew 14/1, Harry Redknapp 20/1, Brendan Rodgers 22/1, Gary Neville 22/1, Jurgen Klinsmann 25/1, Slaven Bilic 28/1, Sam Allardyce 28/1, Glenn Hoddle 28/1, Laurent Blanc 28/1, 33/1 bar.

England v Iceland Betting Tips

England are really going to have to step up to the plate sooner or later. They didn’t deliver at any point in the group stage really with a W1 D2 record. They failed to take a hatful of chances against a very poor Russian side in their opener, then needed a late, late goal to put a win on the board over Wales and then no matter what they tried, they couldn't break down a Slovakia side who were defending their way to a precious point from the off. It’s that lack of clinical finishing from England which is the biggest worry. Do they have the creativity and invention to break defensive sides? However, they are in the round of sixteen, so still in with a chance and they couldn’t have drawn a better fixture for the round of sixteen. On paper at least, as they take on minnows Iceland. Can England deliver the complete attacking performance they need? Harry Kane may come back into the starting eleven to reclaim his place and he is 7/4 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market. Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney are all 2/1 quotes to net on the day. While England have struggled for wins, they really haven't looked like getting beaten and probably the only thing that will trip them up down the line is themselves not being able to break down a defensive side when they need to. England won the only previous meeting between these two, a 6-1 win back in 2004 and that was a game in which Wayne Rooney netted a brace in. Maybe that’s good omen for this one. Over 2.5 goals is worth a flutter at 6/4 and England to win to nil is a quote of even money. In the England v Iceland Correct Score market for the game you have have an England 1-0 option as the 3/1 shortest price option. Iceland have put in some hard, hard graft at Euro 2016 so far. They pretty much defended for the entire group stage matches they played. They opened with that dramatic draw against Portugal then they undid themselves through an own goal in a 1-1 draw with Hungary before netting a dramatic winner over Austria in their final group stage match. Iceland actually netted four goals in their group stage campaign. England netted three. Both teams to score in his game is a7/4 punt and Iceland have scored in each of their last eleven games (as well as conceding). Kolbeinn Sigthorsson is a 6/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market for them. England should get chances considering Iceland shipped a goal in each of their group stage games so seeing them blank the Three Lions is hard to picture.

England v Iceland Betting Odds

England 8/15, Draw 29/10, Iceland 15/2

England v Iceland Predictions

Sooner or later surely England really have to deliver that attacking force that they have spoken so much about. That’s pretty much their one go-to game plan, throw the kitchen sink at attack. They still need some more work to make that a viable route it would seem,as they are just lacking that killer instinct. Maybe it will come good here, but either way they are value to win comfortably to nil.

England v Slovakia Betting Tips

Group B has turned out to be as exciting as was hoped for. England will be guaranteed a top three finish whatever happens, but would naturally like to top the group, which would do wonders for confidence and momentum. It would be a bit of a blow if they didn’t push on from that win over Wales to take a victory in this one. England have superior fire power out of the two teams here and Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy, who came up with the goals against the Welsh are likely to be drafted into the starting line up. Those two, along with Kane are trading at a price of 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market against Slovakia. Both teams have scored in six of England’s last seven games so they may again need their firepower to cover up some cracks that they have at the back. The last time that England and Slovakia met, England won 4-0 and that is three wins in a row that England have posted over the Slovakians. After the pressure was relieved with that late win over the Welsh, this is where England fans and backers would like to see them really push on and take back to back victories in the Championship, putting in a commanding finish. But there could be life in this game and it may not all be plain sailing over the 90 minutes at all because Slovakia are in the play off picture and they can’t afford to suffer a loss. If they do lose and Russia beat Wales in the other game, then it is Slovakia who could be going home. Slovakia go into the sat on three points, level with the Welsh and just the one behind England, so the best way to guarantee their own progress is to beat England and that could make this interesting. They have the energy to take on the English defence, but the thing about Slovakia is that they are just as capable of turning up and playing a stinker as they are to play a lively, energetic positive game. They are in decent form though and both teams to score in this game is trading at a price of even money which should have some big appeal. Star player Marek Hamsik scored a brilliant winner against Russia and he is a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. They will probably create some good chances in the game and they may well play their part in this game going over 2.5 goals is a price of 11/10. They’ll be keen to test Joe Hart with some direct free kicks no doubt.

England v Slovakia Predictions

The safest option on this one is to look for goals. This should be a lively and entertaining finish to the Group B action from these two. It’s a good setup for the game and England should be winning the match given the extra quality they have but they will get periods of pressure from the Slovakians most likely. England will probably still get the maximum points but look for them to concede again.
