England v Iran

WHEN: 1pm
TV: BBC

Iran are politically under a bit of pressure at the moment so it will be interesting to see how they are. With England, it’s going to be really interesting to see what team Gareth Southgate picks. The majority of England supporters will think, ‘Oh we’re just going to tank them 3-0, 4-0’. I don’t think that’s going to happen.

First games in major competitions are always very, very cagey. We know Carlos Queiroz well and one of the big things for me with England is that I just hope they don’t play with two holding midfielders. I really don’t get it and, certainly against teams like Iran, I don’t think there’s any need to do so.

What they have is lots of wide players like Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, all those guys, they’ve got Jude Bellingham in the middle who has to play – this game is tailor made for him. In the last third of the pitch England have got some really, really talented players. It’s just a case of getting the mix right.

I expect England to win but I don’t think it will be a rout. I’m going to go 2-0 to England.

Senegal v Netherlands

I think this tournament is going to be like World Cups of old where a number of teams can actually win it. Quite often in recent tournaments there’s been some real hot favourites but I don’t think this World Cup is necessarily going to be like that.

I think the Netherlands might be the dark horses to go all the way. I fancy The Netherlands to win here but I only fancy them to Win 1-0.

Both will be thinking they can win this game and you’d think they have to do so. USA will be as fit as any team in the competition and they’re improving year on year, no doubt about that, with a few players in the Premier League and the Bundesliga.

Wales, there’s the whole question over whether Gareth Bale will start or not. I’m not sure if he will because he’s hardly played for LAFC, let alone started and played the full 90. He’s got an unbelievable record but he’s just not played enough to be in top shape here. I’m going to go for a 1-1 Draw.
