Tunisia vs England – Predictions, Odds & Betting Tips
Bet Now on The World Cup Final – France vs Croatia
In crucial FIFA 2018 World Cup Group G action, North African side, Tunisia, meet perennial hopefuls and one of the World Cup’s highly rated chances, England, in Volgograd.
The two sides have met twice previously, however, not since the 1998 World Cup;
- 1990 – Tunisia 1 England 1
- 1998 – England 2 Tunisia 0
England are a young and developing side, a trait that is reflected in their young-ish and inexperienced coach Gareth Southgate. This young English team are relatively untouched by England’s demons of underperformance in past World Cups.
In Harry Kane, they have chosen a talented young leader.
However, have they overcome the elimination by Iceland at Euro 2016? Questions always persist with England at this level, but they should cruise into the knockout phase.
Tunisia are a much better side than the one quoted at $401 to win the World Cup. The second round may elude them, but they may provide an upset or two along the way.
There are no household names in the squad, but to their credit, the Tunisians emerged from their African qualifying group undefeated and are Africa’s highest ranked team in the FIFA rankings at 14. Forward Wahbi Khazri, who bagged 11 goals for his French club side, Stade Rennais this season, will carry Tunisia’s goal scoring burden.
