After beating Tunisia in the opening game, England will be facing Panama on Sunday in the World Cup in Russia. Panama lost their first match against Belgium with the result of 0-3, and we are comfortable that England will get another three points to ensure a place in the round of 16.
2-1 victory over Tunisia
England got a head start in the opening game against Tunisia in the World Cup. Harry Kane scored a early goal, in the 11th minute, and England controlled the game and was on their way to ensure three comfortable points.
Tunisia worked their way into the match, and equalized the score in the 35th minute through a penalty. England was clearly struggeling after the penalty, and the second half didn’t bring up any big chances. But in the first minute of overtime, Harry Kane managed to score another goal. The final result was 2-1, and Englande secured another three points.
Panama up next
In the second round of group G, England will be facing Panama. The match will be played on Sunday, at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod.
Panama did what they could against Belgium in the first round, but it was not enough. In the first half Belgium had many great opportunities to score , but there were still no goals going in to halftime. But in the second half, it only took Belgium two minutes to take the lead. And in the 69th and 75th minute, Roma Lukaku did both 2-0 and 3-0 for Belgium. Panama could not threaten the Belgium side and left the game scoreless.
Dele Alli injured
In the match against Tunisia, Dele Alli got injured and will probably not be able to participate on Sunday. Ruben Loftus-Cheek did a impressive as a substitute versus Tunisia and are one of the big names to cover for Alli.
Sterling in the starting XI?
Another interesting discussion is wether Sothgate will keep Raheem Sterling in the starting XI considering his underwhelming performance versus Tunisia and now has 21 England games without a goal. Marcus Rashford is more likely to start and did a great job as a substitute in the games versus Tunisia.
