England to edge out Nigeria


The World Cup 2018 warm-ups continue today and I fancy England to have too much for Nigeria.

England 20/21 to win to zero

The Three Lions have been remarkably stingy in recent months, conceding just a single goal in their last four friendlies and Gareth Southgate is expected to field a strong side at Wembley.

A tight game is likely as both sets of players look to avoid any unfortunate injuries with Russia on the horizon and as a by-product, chances will be few and far between.

Nigeria are re-emerging under Gernot Rohr and the German seems to have brought some stability after a chaotic few years before his arrival.

The Super Eagles will field the likes of Wilfried Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi but may lack the spark to break down and improving England rearguard.

Belgium 27/10 to win and both teams to score

England’s Group G rivals Belgium can also take a scalp against Portugal, who continue to struggle for rhythm.

Big things are again expected of the Red Devils in Russia and they have a good record at home, losing just once since 2013.

Portugal maybe European champions but could only draw 2-2 with Tunisia on Monday and appear to be for the taking in this one.
