World Cup Betting Odds:
In qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Tunisia has now made 5 trips to the international tournament. Despite frequent visits, the Tunisians have never made it out of the group stage. On top of that, the club has failed to deliver a World Cup victory since their triumph over Mexico back in 1978. Nevertheless, Tunisia is confident they can make a deep push in this year’s tournament. The reason being that they were unbeaten in their qualifying matches. This isn’t the first time Tunisia will face England. The two crossed paths back in France 98 with the English side coming out on top 2-0.
Players to Watch: Wahbi Khazri (Rennes), Aymen Abdennour (Marseille), and Youssef Msakni (Al-Duhail).
The English enter with a team that is much younger than their usual form. While this might give their side more energy and vigor, it also takes away much of the experience previous teams brought to this stage. Gareth Southgate is the manager for this side and despite entering with a young team, his side is brimming with confidence. Ultimately England will be looking to set themselves apart in a tournament in which all the biggest names failed to do so. A dominant win over Tunisia would certainly give the English an edge in getting out of this group stage.
Players to Watch: Harry Kane (Tottenham), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), and Eric Dier (Tottenham).
