Despite not having the best results in recent competitions, England is still a crowd favorite and always discussed when it comes to teams which can win the World Cup 2018. They haven’t managed to win the competition since 1966, but their notoriety is still there.
Tunisia vs England Match Preview
Even this year, they are seen like a strong team – not tournament-winning strong, but up there. Their debut game will be against a team at the opposite end of the spectrum: rarely qualified for the final tournament, and with hardly any notable results – Tunisia.
Tunisia Team News
It’s hard to find any notable results for this Tunisian team, too. They are disciplined, hardworking, but lacking real stars and offensive power. They’re one of those teams which loves to win 1-0 and almost never scores more than 1-2 goals per game.
Their World Cup experience isn’t the best either, with no notable results. Their only win goes all the way back to their first participation in 1978, and they failed to win ever since. They’re not expected to produce lots of fireworks in the group, and should lose to both England and Belgium.
England Team News
Speaking of England, however, they’re definitely the team which has something to prove in this tournament. Their World Cup performances have been between lackluster to downright humiliating in recent years, despite being very strong on paper.
This new generation of players doesn’t have lots of games under its belt, but has a few world-class talents: Kane, Alli and Sterling are players who can win you games almost alone.
Couple these guys with some experience in the backline and some good midfield talent, and you’ve got yourself a team – or so they hope. The first major test of this team will be against Belgium, but they do require a win against Tunisia first. And a convincing one, too.
Tunisia vs England Betting Tips
That being said, we’re fairly sure that England will manage to win this game, since they’ll easily dominate both the physical and technical aspects of the match. They should be able to score at least one or two goals, and probably avoid conceding as well.
We also believe we should see under 2,5 goals in this game, because we will see two teams with good defenses go against each other. And last but not least, we believe Kane will get his name on the scoresheet – either from a long shot, a corner, a free kick, a penalty, we don’t really care. Kane will score and England will win.
