England to edge tight contest

343

England can gain some revenge for their World Cup semi-final defeat by getting the better of Croatia at Wembley on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate’s team will qualify for the semi-finals of the Nations League if they can get the better of Croatia, who they drew 0-0 with behind closed doors last month.

Three days after that stalemate England produced an exhilarating display to win 3-2 in Spain, but Croatia matched that result on Thursday to leave Group A4 on a knife-edge.

England to beat Croatia 1-0 @ 7/1

England warmed up for Sunday’s match by easing to a 3-0 victory against the USA in a friendly international and Southgate used the match as an opportunity to look at some of his fringe players.

He was able to rest the likes of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and John Stones and they will all be chomping at the bit to take on a Croatia side that proved to be too good for them in Moscow just over four months ago.

Sterling, who ended his long barren goalscoring run by netting against Spain in Seville, is 13/2 to score the first goal against Zlatko Dalic’s team.

Germany v Netherlands – Draw @ 51/20

On Monday, the Netherlands can continue their recent revival by drawing against Germany in Gelsenkirchen and qualifying for the semi-finals.

The Dutch failed to reach Euro 2016 or this summer’s World Cup but beat the Germans 3-0 last month and followed that victory up by defeating France 2-0 on Friday.

The win for Ronald Koeman’s side against Les Bleus relegated Germany and the Netherlands can add to the gloom surrounding Die Mannschaft by frustrating them in Gelsenkirchen. A 0-0 draw is available at 39/4.
