Three Lions to cruise to second victory

England v Panama- World Cup 2018

England v Panama Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 24th June – 1.00 p.m

Harry Kane was England’s hero with a brace against Tunisia to get the Three Lions off to a positive start in Group G with three points. They will secure qualification through to the round of sixteen if they get another three points here. With England in form, they will be expected to cruise their way past the Central Americans. Panama went down 3-0 against Belgium in their opener in the group and they aren’t carrying the kind of form to suggest that they are going to get anything out of this.

England News and Form

It was a very good positive display from England as they opened their World Cup 2018 account with a win over Tunisia. They had to bide their time against an opponent who were just sitting deep for the game and Harry Kane was the hero of the day netting the winner in stoppage time. That was a brace for Kane in England’s 2-1 win and for our England v Panama predictions, we have to look at Kane as the 15/8 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:47 a.m.) with bookmaker bet365. Kane can get himself in the frame for the Golden Boot with another good performance here against a much weaker Panama defence. Overall it was a good showing from England aside from a defensive lapse here and there. At least they are showing plenty of running and commitment and are keen to get forward. This game gives England a good chance to build up a head of steam.

The Three Lions are undefeated in eleven games but they haven’t been particularly potent in front of goal. They weren’t impressive up front through their World cup 2018 qualification campaign. But they have returned exactly two goals in each of their last three games now and in the bet365 correct score market an England 2-0 option is a rock solid 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:47 a.m.) in our England v Panama predictions. That does appeal when you take into consideration Belgium’s 3-0 win over Panama and the Red Devils have far more of an attacking threat than England do. You can always go to the safety net of England to win to nil at bet365 for 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:47 a.m.).

Panama News and Form

This is Panama’s first ever World Cup and it is likely going to peter out in disappointing fashion. They went down 3-0 against Belgium in their first match in Group G and while they did alright in the first half in terms of digging in for a bit a of resilience, they never looked a threat in the game. Panama have come up with just the one goal in their last six fixtures and they are currently running on a three-match winless streak (D1 L2). In their last six games, they have lost four (D1 L1) and so it is hard to see them returning anything from this fixture. Even if they were to manage to find a way to get their foot on the ball, it is unlikely that they will have the craft and quality to hurt England and the Three Lions haven’t conceded much in their current streak of form. This should end up being easy for the Europeans and an England/England half-time/ full-time draw is a good 4/6 option to get on board with as England have been starting game strongly* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:47 a.m.).

England v Panama Predictions

It was a joy to see England looking so positive against Tunisia and while there is still a lack of quality about the Three Lions and they look wasteful up front, at least they are not short of passion and commitment. An England 2-0 correct score appeals for the Three Lions here in our England v Panama prediction, just because England have been short of goals.
