Czech Republic v England Betting Preview 11/10/2019
Gareth Southgate took some persuading before he took the England job. He believed that the job had become available too early into his development as a coach.
But, having finally decided that he would take the job on a long-term basis he decided that he was not going to do things by halves. Southgate set his sights on England winning the World Cup and European Championships under his management.
After the amount of improvement that England have shown under Southgate, who would write off even such lofty ambitions?
England looked a long way from the finished article in the Nations League finals, but they’ve shown in Euro 2020 qualifying that they are a cut above most international teams in Europe. The Three Lions already sit top of Group A in qualifying and should strengthen their position further still with victory over the Czech Republic on Friday night.
Expect More Control From England
England have committed to playing more games away from Wembley Stadium over the coming years. So far, the matches played outside of London have gathered great support including England’s last match against Kosovo.
The fans with tickets turned up to St. Mary’s hopeful of an exciting match but nobody was expecting England to win 5-3. It was a fantastic match from an entertainment standpoint but Southgate was rightly disappointed with elements of England’s play.
The key problem that match highlighted was just how short of quality England are in defence compared to other areas of the pitch.
Each position in the back five (including Jordan Pickford) is up for grabs at the moment. Southgate wants his team to play expansive football as he believes that’s the best way to win major trophies, but he is a former centre-back and still something of a pragmatist.
The England manager knows his team cannot afford to be as open in Prague as they were in Southampton. We’re not expecting much of a change in the way that England set up but their approach will be more cautious than it was against Kosovo.
It will be very interesting to see to what extent England are capable of dominating a match like this away from home. We do not expect it to be easy for the Three Lions but do think that they will return home having secured another important win,
Czech Republic are also managed by a former centre back in Jaroslav Silhavy. They’ll need to be very well-organised at the back if they are to keep England’s incredibly talented forward line from overwhelming them again.
This is likely to be a tight contest, therefore, we like the look of England to win a match in which under 2.5 goals are scored at 5/2 with Coral.
Another tempting route to potential profit is the England 2-0 correct score selection which is available at 6/1 with Sportingbet.
Kane to Enjoy a Change of Scenery
Everybody seems to have an opinion on Tottenham’s current problems. Some believe that Mauricio Pochettino is losing the dressing room, others believe that the squad should have been refreshed a long time ago and some have even gone as far as to criticise Harry Kane for his part in the lack of leadership in the Spurs ranks.
Criticising Kane given how vital he has been in the recent good years for Tottenham seems more than a little harsh. Kane is level-headed and won’t be taking that criticism to heart too much. Even so, he’ll be happy for the chance to see some different faces and play in a different setup.
Kane will also enjoy the chance to be the main man again and can score the first goal of Friday night’s match at 3/1 with Betway.
