England – Panama : Preview & Prediction
What if England was the surprise of this competition? Much less expected than in recent years, the English remain on a series of eleven matches without defeat. For their entry in the running, the selection of the Three Lions had to wait for the last moments of the match to win against Tunisia (2-1). Thanks to a double of his star, Harry Kane, the band of Gareth Southgate avoided their worst on this first day. Jordan Henderson’s teammates are now hoping to get closer to qualifying for the next round. For that, England confronts Panama. Disputing their first World Cup, the Panamanians could do nothing against Belgium. If the players of Hernán Darío Gómez managed to hold in first half against the Red Devils, they cracked thereafter (3-0), not showing much in the offensive field. The little finger may well know the same scenario against the English. Having proved convincing for long minutes, the selection of the Three Lions could pose many problems for the Panamanian defense.
