England vs Panama | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
England take on Panama on Sunday afternoon, with Gareth Southgate’s men looking to make it two wins from two in Group G. The Three Lions secured a last-gasp win over Tunisia last time around, while Panama come into the match off the back of a convincing defeat to Belgium, with the World Cup debutants undoubtedly hoping to show themselves in a better light this weekend.
Action in Group G resumes on Sunday when England and Panama go head-to-head at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, with a win for England potentially confirming their place in the knockout stages of this summer’s World Cup. However, with Panama searching for their first ever World Cup win, it could well be that the Three Lions do not have things all their own way. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with England.
England News & Form
Two goals from Harry Kane helped England to a 2-1 win over Tunisia in their opening Group G encounter, with Southgate’s men the favourites to make it two wins from two against Panama. The England boss reportedly had his team sheet leaked ahead of kick-off, with both Marcus Rashford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek expected to come in for Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling. Elsewhere, Danny Rose could come in for Ashley Young in defence, with England looking to extend their unbeaten run against Panama.
Panama Team News & Form
Panama were beaten 3-0 by Belgium in their first ever World Cup match, with little expecting much from the debutants in Russia this summer. However, manager Hernán Darío Gómez had made Panama difficult to beat, as demonstrated by pre-tournament results against Northern Ireland, Trinidad & Tobago and Norway. Despite a lacking of any major attacking threat, Captain Román Torres helps to make up a more than capable back line, who will have their work cut out against the likes of Kane and Rashford.
England vs Panama Head to Head
The two nations have never previously met in either a competitive or friendly encounter, meaning that no conclusions can be made when it comes to the head-to-head record between England and Panama.
