England Preview, Predictions, Players and Stats

After exiting the 2014 World Cup at the group stage and losing to Iceland in the round of 16 at Euro 2016, The Three Lions are highly motivated for this tournament and all players are highly motivated to make a big success this summer. Anything short of the semi-final will be seen as a failure for this talented team from England. Here's everything you need to know about the team:

England have a very good qualification campaign and have a really easy route to the group stage. They are placed in Group G with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama and for sure they can collect at least two wins on major tournament. They are much better side then Tunisia and Panama and we expect from them to beat these teams. They like to play aggressive football and the midfield will need to dominate the ball. So we expect from them to play very cautious and to reach Round of 16 on World Cup 2018. The Three Lions side could impress in Russia and this can be their year to show the best performance on the World Cup tournaments.

England Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

England have a high ambitions for this World Cup in Russia, and for sure they will fight for the top spot against Belgium. They will play a hard game in the Matchday 1 against Tunisia, but we expect from them to win this game to nil. So The Three Lions will play in Round 3 against Belgium and it will be a fight game for the first place. We expect from both sides to pick up 6 points before the last round and then we will enjoy in an interesting game with lots of excitements and scoring chances. Also we expect to see lots of corners on that match.
