England vs Panama PREVIEW & PREDICTION 24/06/2018


On Sunday at the Stadion Nizhny Novgorod the England team will seek to seal their qualification to the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup Russia, when they face the newcomer Panama, within the framework of Group G.


Those led by Gareth Southgate fought hard to get their game against Tunisia, but happily on the last play of the match appeared his striker Harry Kane to score his double and the 2-1 final that leaves the Three Lions in the group face to get their qualification to the knockout stages in the 2018 World Cup Russia.

With the triumph over the African national team England added its third consecutive victory and with it they got a run of eleven games without losing where eight of them were victories and now before one of the weakest selections of the World Cup Russia 2018 they hope to continue the good run. results


Meanwhile, those led by Colombian Hernán Gómez did a good job in the first half in their game against Belgium, which was his debut in the history of the world. Unfortunately for the “Caneleros” the early goal by Dries Mertens two minutes into the second half threw away everything planned by a Panama that although showed signs of recovery and had some chances to achieve equality, could not contain the attacks of the Red Devils and in the end they were defeated by a resounding 3-0 where Lulaku was the main character to score a double.

While every team arrives at the World Cup with the illusion of reaching as far as possible, we do not believe that Panama thinks this and more when the draw was not awarded and they put it with two candidates to reach the final such as England and Belgium, what before the Three Lions we expect a similar approach to the Red Devils and try to add a draw and then on the last date before a selection with equal conditions as Tunisia to add the first World Cup victory and get four points that allow there to dream about the classification.

Possible alignments:

England: Pickford; Cahill, Stones, Maguire; Henderson, Trippier, Rashford, Alli, Young; Sterling, Kane.

Panama: Penedo; Murillo, Torres, Escobar, Davis; Gómez, Bárcenas, Cooper, Godoy, Rodríguez; Pérez
