England vs Netherlands 29 Mar 2016: International Friendly Preview and Predictions

Reuters-USA TODAY Sports

After a stunning win over Germany a few days ago, the English national team are now back at home where they will face another challenge against the Dutch national team. This should be a great game with a lot of talented players on display so I am expecting a good match.

The Dutch are a good side and although it could be said they are in the rebuilding stage, there is enough talent to cause the English some problems. I like this side since they have pace and are balances in the middle but it is highly likely they will be tested by the pace and skill on the English midfield which has the likes of Dele Ali and Erik Dier who are in great form.

England on the other hand will want to show their home crowd what their new team is all about and I expect them to do so with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane lighting up the fans. This might just be a friendly match but with the Euros coming up there is a lot more to this game so I think we should be in for a treat since these England players look determined.

Overall I think that the home side will continue with their good form and run over the Dutch quite easily. The Three Lions have a lot more pace and skill and that should be enough to break the Dutch defense down quite easily. We are getting quite a short price on the English though but it is still value in my opinion since I don’t see them not winning here. I will have to put quite a big bet on this and I am pretty sure it will get there so I will take it happily.
