TUNISIA Vs ENGLAND
KICK OFF: 18th June 2018 | 19:00 CET
GROUP G: ROUND 1 | VOLGOGRAD ARENA
Expect England to make a strong debut when they play Tunisia
Tunisia had been playing well of late, accumulating an unbeaten run of nine matches before losing 1-0 to Spain in their last pre-World Cup friendly. The North African team showed their resilience when they held Portugal and Turkey to a 2-2 draw respectively.
But, the Three Lions have Harry Kane to provide the goals. Add Raheem Sterling, and Marcus Rashford to the frontline, and the threat becomes more robust. Indeed, Gareth Southgate has managed to create some encouraging performances out of his young squad since he took over as England manager. They haven’t lost any of their last ten matches in which included titans of world football of the likes of Germany, Brazil, and Italy. To be fair, England has to win this one.
