England Play Switzerland In Real Friendly
England were 22 minutes away from playing in the World Cup final but have now lost three matches in succession for the first time since 1988. On the one hand England only beat Tunisia, Panama and Sweden in 90 minutes in Russia but progressed further than Germany, Brazil, Spain and Argentina. The cards definitely fell kindly but you can only beat who you have to play and England did score 12 goals in seven matches during the World Cup. Switzerland are their opponents this evening at Leicester’s ground in what is a genuine friendly rather than the pseudo friendlies that are fixtures in the UEFA Nations League. ENGLAND are 7/10 with Ladbrokes to beat Switzerland tonight.
The bane of international football in the past has been meaningless matches with nothing at stake. Inventing a tournament concept will not fool the fans and everybody knows winning Euro 2020 is what matters and the Nations League is a manufactured environment. At least tonight the match is called a friendly and is not being disguised as something it is not. Team selection and motivation are key and you would fancy the England second string to beat Switzerland. However, England have won just three of their last nine friendlies and Switzerland have lost twice in 22 matches. The visitors scored six against Iceland in their last match and England are strong up front so the bet of the match is BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at Evens with bet365.
Backing football teams at odds-on is not everybody’s cup of tea and in international friendlies teams often don’t play to their best. Players may lack the desire and hunger while opponents may have something to prove. However, in any potential scenario Poland must beat Ireland at home tonight in a non-competitive match. Ireland have just seven Premier League players available for selection. POLAND have a new coach and must be backed even at 11/20 with William Hill.
It’s the second day of the Listowel harvest festival and the fixture is the most lucrative of the day. The richest race on the card is the handicap hurdle over two miles at 3.40 and there is a maximum field of 18 runners. The place terms are one quarter the odds for the first four and KUIPER BELT is the each-way bet. The horse has won two minor races in England and now steps up to handicap company with potentially something in hand so is the selection at 10/1 with Coral.
