The Tunisia vs. England match will be played on Monday, June 18, at the Volgograd Arena, Volgograd. This is the first round match of World Cup group G. Apart from Tunisia and England, Panama and Belgium were drawn in this group.

STATS

  • Tunisia failed to win in three consecutive games prior to the start of World Cup. However, all those games were played against strong European teams. They lost 1:0 against Spain, and they played 2:2 against Portugal and Turkey.
  • England is undefeated for 10 straight games. They recorded two goalless draws against Germany and Brazil, the teams that are regarded as the top favorites for the title, so their self confidence level is really high.

HEAD TO HEAD

These teams met only two times so far. Last time they played in 1998 at World Cup held in France and England recorded a 2:0 victory. In a friendly match played in 1990, the result was 1:1.

TUNISIA NEWS

Tunisia is regarded as the third-best team in group G, but nobody gives them chances to advance to the knockout phase. After all, England and Belgium are much better on paper, and these two European powerhouses should advance to the next phase of the tournament. However, Tunisia proved themselves as a tough opponent to many high-class national teams prior to the World Cup, and they certainly feel they have a chance against England, that has a history of underperforming at World Cups in the last decades.

ENGLAND NEWS

The first match is crucial for the English campaign. If they beat Tunisia, they will probably decide the winner of the group in the last game of the group against Belgium, but if they fail, their campaign might come to an early end. In England, everybody expects that this World Cup will be different for them, but we won't know until we see them in action.

07.06.2018 Int. England Costa Rica 2:0 W
02.06.2018 Int. England Nigeria 2:1 W
27.03.2018 Int. England Italy 1:1 D

SUMMING UP!

England is a favorite to win this match. However, Tunisian defense is tough to break, so we expect to see under 2.5 goals in the upcoming game.
