Tunisia Vs England – Prediction, Odds, & Betting Tips
Group G matches begin on Monday from the Volgograd Arena when England takes on Tunisia. The Three Lions have disappointed in recent internationals, leaving expectations for England, perhaps at an all-time low. Tunisia makes it back to the World Cup for the first time since 2006. They were the first African side to win a World Cup game after defeating Mexico 3-1 in 1978.

Tunisia Vs England – Recent Form & Injury
England has looked good in their recent friendlies and appear to be in top form coming into this match. They are unbeatable in their last ten matches and have given up just three goals during that time. The team is much younger than other English teams to go to the World Cup. For much of the squad, it will be there first ever World Cup game. England is mostly healthy. Man U striker, Marcus Rashford, has returned to training after being out with a knee injury in practice. Manager Gareth Southgate will have his full complement of 23 players for the World Cup’s opening match.
Tunisia will be fielding a team that has several foreign-born players, but one of the better squads they have had in years. They’re currently ranked 21st in the world. They have played well in their build-up to the World Cup but will be without forward Youssef Msakni who is out with an injury.
Tunisia (+1) Vs England (-1) Betting Odds
England is a large favorite in this one. They’re favored on the Asian Handicap, but are plus money at -1, -1 ½ goals. They’re -227 to win the game outright and Tunisia is a +775 dog. A draw is +300.
Tunisia is a talented team, but I like England to take control of this one and capture three points. The loss of Mskani is massive for Tunisia, and they may not be able to generate much offense if they get down early. I like England to win by a score of 2-0.
