England play Tunisia for their first game of the tournament at 7pm on Monday 18th June. As Group G starts their tournament Belgium vs Panama at 4pm followed by the England game, all teams looking to gain the three points to lead the group.
Tunisia managed to impress during the World Cup friendlies against two top sides. Drawing with UEFA European Champions Portugal and losing 1-0 to 2010 World Cup winners Spain on the 84th minute. Whereas England disappointed with a mediocre performance by the team. Both international teams have something to prove, with the pressure of the first World Cup game of their tournament and the added pressure of proving their worth in the tournament . Both teams not wanting to disappoint their fans, which will make for a very interesting game for both teams.
England and Tunisia have a full squad available in preparation for the game and are expected to play the strongest team possible. Tunisia’s Wahbi Kharzi expected to play alongside team mate Ali Maaloul both giving the coaching staff a positive outlook on the game, with confidence on their ability. However with England also having a full squad their able to play their strongest team including Harry Kane, Dele Alli and the list goes on, also giving the coaching a positive look on the game and confidence on their ability to win the game.
With the strange results already happening at the World Cup anything can happen during the game.
My prediction for the game: England 2 – 1 Tunisia
