After doing their absolute best to ensure that they don’t top the group on Friday, England now look to face the Czech Republic. A massive game for both sides who will both look to secure a place in the round of 16 while also simultaneously avoid the goliaths of France, Portugal and Germany.
Harry Kane has been about as involved at the tournament so far as Nathan Ake was in Man City’s Premier League title run, and our biggest take away from their eastern European opponents is that they should be renamed the Schick Republic after two monster performances from the Bayer Leverkusen striker. But let’s get to looking at what we can use that €/£5 free bet on!
20:00 Tuesday: England v Czech Republic
I feel that England might win this game despite themselves. Whatever chance they have against one of the bigger teams, the Czechs won’t mind losing in order to get themselves a marginally easier second round game against the runners up of group E. I’m calling a bland 1-0 win that will make us yearn for an hour and a half of our lives back, but football’s coming home am I right?
If we’ve learned anything at this tournament, it’s this man’s name. He’s had five shots on target in two games and secured himself three goals to boot! I’d back him to have at least one shot on target against this sturdy England defence.
There’s been on average just under 8 corners per game in England and the Czech Republic’s group games so far in the tournament. However, England will be looking to usher the Czechs wide to mitigate the Schick effect, and with Harry Kane currently modelling for missing person posters England will attack from wide too.
This is going to be a physical game, with both sides doing absolutely everything in their power not to win and face the group of death runner up in the next round. Czechia picked themselves up 3 yellow cards against Croatia, meanwhile England have earned only one in the tournament thus far. I still can see Tyrone Mings absolutely bodying a man around the halfway line though, even if Southgate has been using him to keep Pickford company as far away from the ball as possible.
