England takes on Panama in the FIFA World Cup 2018. This is the second game of the group stage for both teams and it means that a result is needed for both teams. I am expecting determined performances from both sides since it is the business end of the group stage.
England looked good in their opening game against Tunisia. The Three Lions were good going forward and the defense held together. The main criticism for England was that they failed to convert their chances and that is something they will need to improve in this game against Panama. There is always lots of expectations of the England National side and although things are looking good for the team, it will be important that they beat Panama and make it out of the group early.
On the other side of the coin, Panama will look to trouble England. The Central American side were good for the first half against Belgium and they will look to put up a similar performance against England. There are no expectation on this Panama side and although I don’t see them getting a result from this game, they should put up a good showing.
Taking everything into consideration, I can safely make a prediction that England will win this game. The Three Lions are far better than their opponents and this should be an easy victory. Unfortunately, we are not getting the right price to wager on England so the outright result is something we should avoid betting on. The best result in the under 2.5 goals. I see Panama fighting hard and preventing a massive win for England so the under 2.5 goals seems like a good bet in my opinion.
