It’s coming home…hopefully, this time around. Let’s face it, we were naive back in 2018. We’re much better able to manage our expectations this time around, but come on, surely this year we can make something happen!


Sunday 14:00 – England v Croatia
BBC One / RTÉ Two

England already owns Scotland (just don’t tell Mel Gibson or Nicola Sturgeon!), Croatia are looking beatable and pfft, the Czech Republic just haven’t been the same since Petr Cech hung up his helmet.

You know what that means… we only really need to worry about who’ll be runners up in Group F. But, not to get ahead of ourselves, here’s what we’re thinking for step one on the road to European Glory. 

Bet Builder Acca Insurance

If one leg of your 4+ fold Bet Builder lets you down, you get up to £/€10 back as a free bet. Customers can qualify for 1 Bet Builder Acca Insurance per day up to £/€10. The free bets will be credited by 12pm the following day.

England To Win

Croatia certainly won’t be pushovers, but with losses to Slovenia and Belgium recently, and an underwhelming one-all draw with Armenia in the pre-tournament friendlies, England should be well versed to beat a side that is struggling with depth – up front and at the back.

Over 0.5 Goals

England were only able to put one away past Romania and achieved the same result against Austria in recent weeks. With Croatia’s current form, expect a low-scoring affair with the Croats relying heavily on their talented and experienced midfield to carry them through.

Harry Kane To Have 2 Or More Shots On Target

Harry Kane enters the Euros with the second highest shots on target per 90 minutes ratio, averaging 2.05 shots on target per 90. I would definitely fancy his chances to achieve this against Dejan Lovren (remember him?) and Besiktas’ Domagoj Vida.


Tyrone Mings To Get Booked

The inevitable. We all know he’s only there because he’s left footed. Loves to get in among the action – sometimes arguably, a little too much! With Harry Maguire in doubt to start, expect Mings to get himself in some sort of trouble.

Andrej Kramaric To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target

Hie’s the main man up front for this Croatian side and he should be primed to get great service from household names in the midfield and out wide.

England v Croatia tips summary:

England To Win
Over 0.5 Goals
Harry Kane To Have 2 Or More Shots On Target
Tyrone Mings To Get Booked
Andrej Kramaric To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target
