England continue their Group G campaign at the 2018 World Cup by facing Panama in their second match on Sunday June 24.
This is the middle fixture of three for Gareth Southgate’s side and after Harry Kane's last gasp winner in their opening match against Tunisia, the Three Lions will be expecting to pick up another three points in Nizhny Novgorod.

England vs Panama betting preview 


This should be a similar test to the Tunisia game for England in terms of its level of difficulty if not necessarily the style of the match, although Panama represent a complete unknown quantity as the Three Lions have never played them before.

It's fair to say that the Canalmen didn't get their World Cup campaign off to the best of starts though. After battling well to take Belgium into the half-time break at 0-0, the Central Americans folded somewhat in the second half of their first ever World Cup match and ended up on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline.

Gareth Southgate's men can come into the match in high spirits given the manner of their victory against Tunisia. Harry Kane's last gasp winner is bound to boost the spirits within the Three Lions camp and they performed fairly well throughout the match and could arguably have had two penalties prior to that late winner after the Eagles of Carthage had equalised from the penalty spot in the first half after Kane had given England the lead.

It has to be said that with such an old squad, Panama may struggle to keep the pace with this vibrant young England side, the majority of whom will be keen to display their credentials for starting places later in the tournament here. We aren't expecting any surprises for the Three Lions in this affair.

England vs Panama predictions

England have the momentum following that late win against Tunisia and we think they will be able to find more gaps in a less competent defence in this game. Belgium may have taken some time to get on the scoresheet, but they racked up the goals in the second half against Panama and England can expect to win this one with a two goal handicap at odds of 7/4 with NetBet.

Harry Kane's confidence will be sky high after that brace in the opening game of the tournament for the Three Lions. The Tottenham striker has been handed the armband and will be looking to add to his 15 international goals and keep himself in with a chance of winning the golden boot with a few more goals in this game. We're backing him to open the scoring in this one.
