Harry Kane will Captain England at the 2018 World Cup

Gareth Southgate, the England manager, has announced that Tottenham Hotspur’s striker Harry Kane will be the captain of the England squad at the World Cup in Russia.

Kane has been the England captain on four previous occasions – he first captained the England squad just under a year ago, in the World Cup qualifier against Scotland, the match ended 2-2.

The 24-year-old has scored 12 times in 23 appearances for England since making his international debut against Lithuania in March 2015. He found the back of the net 41 times in all competitions during the 2017/18 season.

In the last international competition Kane failed to impress, but Euro 2016 was 2 years ago and Kane has more international experience behind him. England were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland.

England will meet Nigeria at Wembley stadium on the 2nd June in an international friendly in the run up to the 2018 World Cup. Five days later the Three Lions will meet Costa Rica at Elland road. England’s first World Cup match will be on the 18th June when they meet Tunisia.

England were drawn in Group G along with Tunisia, Panama and Belgium.

Kane is 5/4 to be England’s top goalscorer in Russia and England are 11/5 to be eliminated at the quarter-final stage of the World Cup.

Odds available at bet365, Odds Correct on the 22nd May 2018.

Harry Kane England Captain

England’s World Cup Squad Named: Who Will Be The Captain for the Opening Game Against Tunisia?

England World Cup BettingGareth Southgate named the England squad on 16 May. The team consists of a mixture of the tried and trusted and the young bloods. England’s 2018 World Cup campaign kicks of in Russia on the 18th June, but who will be the captain of the first game against Tunisia?

Who will be England’s captain?

The captain of the England squad is yet to be announced, but it appears to be a straight choice bewteen Kane and Henderson, who offer differing qualities.

Kane is England’s main striker, the man who will lead from the front and by example, a modest but powerful personality who will be keen to make up for his disappointment at Euro 2016.

Henderson, meanwhile, has developed into a top-class captain at Liverpool as they have reached the Champions League final. He also did himself great credit as captain on and off the field in the March international break.

Kane is still favourite, the bookies are backing Kane to be the captain of the first World Cup match. He’s the 8/13 favourite at 888sport (odds correct 18th May 2018).

Betting Odds for Captain of England vs Tunisia

Harry Kane: 8/13
Jordan Henderson: 7/2
Eric Dier: 4/1
Gary Cahill: 16/1
John Stones: 33/1

England World Cup: Betting Odds, Fixtures, Squad, Injuries & Group Info

England World Cup BettingEverything You Need to Know About England’s World Cup Russia 2018 Campaign – Fixtures, Squad, How they Fair in Group G and the Best Betting Odds

England’s 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign for Russia got of to a rocky start when Sam Allaryce left after the first match, but under Gareth Southgate they have been characteristically steady and even posted the best defensive record in the European qualifying section. They let in just 3 goals in ten matches (the first of these was in the match against Slovakia under Allardyce.)

Whilst they have the best defensive record in England and Harry Kane has scored 1 in 2 games during qualifying the expectations for England are not high. This might be a good thing as expectations for previous World Cups and European championships have left fans and punters disappointed.

England should have no trouble qualifying from group G, which also features Belgium, Panama and Tunisia, but in the round of 16 they will probably face Columbia or Senegal. Colombia and Senegal, whilst not expected by the bookies to win the World Cup will give England a run for their money.

An exit prior to the quarter-finals will be seen as a failure for the English squad but if the Three Lions make the semi-finals it will be incredible since they meet Columbia or Senegal. The last two World Cups have seen England departs before the quarter-finals and they haven’t made the semi-finals since 1990, when the finished fourth.

Obviously England won the World Cup in 1966, and winning the 2018 World Cup would be amazing but they will face teams that are ranked much higher by ELO and FIFA. A win would be spectacular but highly improbable.

Southgate was training the under 21’s team and many of them can be expected to be being primed for the 2022 World Cup. If you are going to back England to win a World Cup, maybe make it the 2022 one?

Which World Cup Group were England Drawn in?

England were drawn in group G, and will play alongside Belgium, Tunisia and Panama.

What are the England Fixtures?

Belgium meet Tunisia on the 18th June at the Volograd followed by Panama on June 24th. England will meet Belgium for their third and final group match on June 28th.

World Cup Record

England won the 1966 World Cup, and many fans have been expecting England to bring football home for years! The Three Lions have qualified for the last 5 world cups (they failed to qualify in 1994), making the quarter finals twice (2002, 2006), the last 16 twice (1998, 2010) and the group stage in 2014. Can they make it to the semi-finals this time?

Prediction – Will England win the 2018 World Cup in Russia?

Expectations are not as high for England as they once were. Punters expect Engand to finish second in the group behind Belgium and then possibly edge past Columbia or Senegal in the round of 16. if they do that they will probably face Germany in the quarter-finals.

Germany are one of the best teams in the World, the defending champions. If England were to win a match against Germany, make the semi-finals…anything could happen…they could win the world cup…but can the win against Germany? We predict that England will be knocked out at the quarter-finals.

They have only ever progressed further than the quarter-finals on 2 occasions (1966 – winners & 1990 – fourth place).

Betting Odds for Stage of Elimination
A popular betting market for the English Team is the round that they will be eliminated. What round will England be eliminated from the 2018 world cup? The odds are below:

Round of 16: 11/5
Quarter-finals: 11/5
Group Stage: 5/1
Semi-Finals: 5/1
Second place: 10/1
Winner: 18/1

The bookies are predicting England to be eliminated at the round of 16 or maybe the quart-finals. The odds above were available at bet365 on the 9th May 2018.

Who Will Score the Most Goals for England in Russia 2018?

Harry Kane is Englands’ top goal scorer, the bookies have him at odds of 11/10 to be England’s top goal scorer. Behind him are Raheem Sterling, Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford and Deli Ali.

Harry Kane: 11/10
Raheem Sterling: 6/1
Jamie Vardy: 9/1
Marcus Rashford: 8/1
Deli Ali: 7/1

Belgium World Cup: Fixtures, Squad, Group & Betting Odds

Belgium World Cup BettingBelgium’s World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group and Betting Odds

Belgium have one of the most talented teams in the World right now. They have been tipped to win a major tournament for years but have failed to pull the goods out of the bag, can the 2018 World Cup in Russia be the year that this talented stuffed team lives up to the hype that has surrounded it for years.

The Belgian national football team reached the quarter-finals of both Brazil 2014 and Euro 2016 in France. They were defeated 3-1 to Wales in the Quarter finals of Euro 2016.

They had a very strong qualifying campaign, dropping just two points in 10 matches, scoring 43 times in the process. Romelu Lukaku netted 11 of those goals, while Eden Hazard provided six goals and five assists. Kevin De Bruyne and Dries Mertens will be able to provide more creative flair going forward.

During the qualification process they did not let up, if they are to win Russia 2018 they will need to show no mercy. They need to block goals and score goals.

They have a great team, great strikers one of the best goal keepers in the world and a ton of other talent.

Belgium have quite a favourable list of fixtures facing Panama and Tunisia before they meet England. When they meet England they will probably already have qualified for the round of 16. In the next round they are likely to meet Colombia, Poland or Senegal.

World Cup Group

Belgium were drawn in group G, and will play alongside England, Tunisia and Panama.

Fixtures

Belgium meet Panama on the 18th June at the Sochi stadium followed by Tunisia on June 23rd. England will be their final group opponent on June 28th.

11th June – Costa Rica

Last Six Results

Belgium haven’t lost any of their last 6 matches, winning 5 and drawing 1. If their form continues they will be hard to beat. Expect them not to lose any of their group matches, they might come away with a draw or a win when they meet England, in their last group match.

vs Saudi Arabia (H) 4-0 W
vs Japan (H) 1-0 W
vs Mexico (H) 3-3 D
vs Cyprus (H) 4-0 W
vs Bosnia (A) 4-3 W
vs Greece (A) 2-1 W

World Cup Record

Last time out Belgium reached the quarter finals. They didn’t qualify for the tournament for the two previous years. But prior to that they had quite a good record. They made fourth place in 1986. More often than not they have been eliminated at the round of 16.

Prediction

Belgium will do excellently in the group stages and whilst they don’t face one of the very best teams, but as soon as they meet one of the very best teams they will be eliminated.

Who is Belgium’s Key Player? Who Will Score the Most Goals for Belgium?

Belgium have several great players. But the players that is probably crucial is Kevin De Bruyne as he has been having an amazing season and it is hard to imagine that his form will not continue for his club.

Eden Hazard scored six goals during qualifying and is the bookies second favourite to score the most goals for Belgium.

But it is Lukaku that the bookies think will score the most goals for the Belgians.

Odds from bet365 – correct on 9th May 2018)

Squad

Goalkeepers – Koen Castrels, Thibaut Courtois, Simon Mignolet
Defenders – Toby Alderweireld, Laurent Ciman, Leander Dendoncker, Vincent Kompany, Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen
Midfielders – Yannick Carrasco, Kevin De Bruyne, Mouse Dembele, Marouane Fellaini, Thorgan Hazard, Anthony Limbombe, Thomas Meunier, Radja Nainggolan, Youri Tielemans, Axel Witsel
Forwards – Michy Batshuayi, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens

What are the Odds of Belgium Being Group G Winners?

Belgium are 5/6 to be group G winners. Belgium will have a pretty easy group stage. It’s unlikely that they will lose a group match, by the time they meet England in their last group match they may have already qualified for the round of 16. It’s the Belgians don’t give up, so they are unlikely to give England an easy match.

(odds from bet365 – correct on 9th May 2018)

What are the Odds of Argentina Winning the 2018 World Cup?

If Belgium can keep their current form going they might just justify the hype that surrounds this talented squad of players. They are priced at odds of 11/1 to win the World Cup – Russia 2018.

(odds from bet365 – correct on 9th May 2018)

Injuries

9th May 2018: Romelu Lukaku missed the Brighton fixture with an ankle injury, will miss the last two games for his premier league side Man United. It’s hoped he’ll be back to start the FA cup final, so there is definite hope he’ll be fit for Russia.

World Cup

Who Are the Favourites to Win Group G?

Belgium and England are both fancied to qualify from Group G at World Cup 2018. The two teams are expected to be fighting to be group G winners. Belgium and England are both well clear of Tunisia and Panama in the FIFA and ELO rankings. Panama are making there debut on the World Cup stage and Tunisia have qualified for the first World Cup tournament in 12 years.

When you look at the bookies odds Belgium are the slight favourites to be Group G winners with Belgium priced at odds of 5/6 and England priced at 6/5 (odds correct 7th May 2018 at bet365).

Looking at ELO rankings England (ELO 7) are 2 places ahead of Belgium (ELO 9). But when looking at the FIFA rankings Belgium are third and England are down in 13th. If FIFA rankings are to be believed then Belgium will beat England hands down.

Belgium have been heralded as a rising team for a few years now. They reached the quarter finals of Brazil 2014 and Euro 2016 in France. During qualification they lost just 2 points in ten matches scring 43 times in the process. Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku netted 11 of those goals, while Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard provided six goals and five assists. Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and Napoli’s Dries Mertens provide more creative flair going forward and this could be the opportunity for Belgium’s golden generation to sparkle.

England also sailed trough the qualification process, coming away with eight wins and two draws. England conceded just 3 goals. England exited Euro 2016 to Iceland and weren’t too hot in Brazil in 2014 meaning they once again have much to prove in Russia this time out. Harry Kane will be relied upon to score the goals and improve England’s performance at their sixth consecutive world cup appearance.

Who will the winner of Group G face?

The winner of group G will face groups H’s runner up. Current odds suggest that will be Poland or Columbia.

Who will the runner up of Group G face?

The runner up of Group G will meet the Winner of group H at Otkrytiye Arena. It’s looking like a clash between England and Columbia.

Where Can I Watch England, Belgium, Panama and Tunisia in Group G Matches?

Argentina’s World Cup 2018 Campaign kicks of when they meet Iceland on June 16th at the Spartak stadium in Moscow. Iceland who are making there debut appearance at the world cup are not expected to progress far through the competition so Argentina could be onto a first match win. Argentina have never won a World Cup title but with Lionel Messi, Gonzola Higuain and Sergio Aguero in the team it could be Argentina’s time?

Argentina have an incredible team of very talented individuals who have reached three finals in the past four years (World Cup 2014, Copa America 2015 and Copa America 2016) but they lost all three and failed to even score. If they can reach the final and score a goal in it they stand a real chance at winning. With so many attacking options lets hope they don’t waste this golden opportunity.

World Cup Group

Argentina were drawn in group D, and will play alongside Croatia, Nigeria and Iceland.

World Cup Record

Argentina have a great record at the World Cup. They have won the World Cup twice (1978 and 1986) and have only failed to progress further than the group stage on three times in all competitions. Last time out they were runners up (2014) and they reached the quarter finals for the two world cups prior to that.

Prediction

They have a great record at the world cup despite trouble with the Argenitine FA, The Argentinian team is full of talent. They will have an easy group stage and last 16. Progression past the last 16 will turn them into real contenders. Qualificaton didn’t go very well for the Argentinian side so if Sampaoli can settle on a style to play, their performance during qualification can be forgotten they will make the quarter-finals, semi-finals or even the final. Can Argentina win a third World Cup?

The best odds for Argentina to win the World Cup is 9/1 (bet365 – odds correct 7th May 2018), 4/1 for them to reach the final (bet365 – odds correct 7th May 2018) and in the name the finalist market it is 22/1 (bet365 – odds correct 7th May 2018) for it to be a Brazil/Argentina final.

Punters can also bet on the stage that Argentina will be eliminated. The odds of the stage of elimination are available at bet365. The odds on the 7th May 2018 are as below:

Group stage – 9/2
Last 16 – 9/4
Quarter Final – 11/4
Semi final – 9/2
Runner up – 9/1
Winner – 9/1

Who is Argentina The Key Player? Who Will Score the Most Goals for Argentina?

The Key player will of course be Lionel Messi. Messi will be at his fourth World Cup so has plenty of experience behind him. He can influence a performance and the results with ease. He is often considered the best player in the world and regarded by many as the greatest of all time, Messi has a record-tying five Ballon d’Or awards, four of which he won consecutively, and a record-tying four European Golden Shoes.

The odds of him being the Top Goal Scorer at the 2018 World Cup are 9/1

Despite the terrible Euro 2016 campaign France are one of the bookies favourites to win the 2018 World Cup.

Fixtures

France open their 2018 World Cup campaign on the 16th June when they meet Australia at the Kazan Arena. It should be a pretty easy game for the Les Bleus. They then meet Peru and Denmark. Denmark will probably be the most challenging match, but won’t cause them too many issues. France will fly through the group stage without much hindrance.

World Cup Record

France have a good record at the World Cup, in the last 5 years they have won the tournament (1998), been runners up (2006) and reached the quarter finals (2014). However a pattern is emergin that every other World Cup they have been getting knocked out at the group stage, but we’re not sure that a pattern can be taken from just a 20 year period (just 5 world cups). Since 1930 more often than not France have made it out of the group stage.

Prediction

France are one of the bookies favourites to win, they have some of the most expensive players in the world in their team but can Deschamps form a team that plays well together? The prediction is that they will make the semi-finals or maybe the final but lifting the trophy will need to wait for another year.

Who is France’s The Key Player? Who Will Score the Most Goals for France

Kylian Mbappe will be at the tournament for the first time and is being hailed as one of the world’s most exciting talents. The 19 year old took the Champions League in his stride and in the recent match against Russia he scored twice. If he and Griezmann are on top form France will be difficult to stop.

nGriezman, is one of the most coveted attackers in the game is the bookies 2/1 favourite to score the most goals for France, followed by Giroud and Mbappe who are both priced at 7/1 to be the top goal scorer.
