Domestic seasons may now be over across the continent with the main prizes and relegation spots decided but there will be no lazy summer for lovers of the beautiful game. Attentions turn to the World Cup with Russia 2018 covering four weeks between mid-June and July.

The hosts open the show with match one against Saudi Arabia in a 4.00pm kick-off on Thursday 14th June. The 21st edition of the quadrennial international tournament will feature 32 teams with 64 matches played across 11 cities. The final is scheduled for 15th July at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.

During the group stage, there will be three games played every day starting at 1.00pm, 4.00pm and 7.00pm but there’s no reason work should interfere with your enjoyment of the competition. Forget catching up on the highlights at night – you can now follow more live football games online than ever before. That live streaming means punters can place their bets on the move and watch the action as they go.

England expects a winning start

England open their account against Tunisia on Monday 18th June with a 7.00pm start due to be screened live on BBC. They then take on Panama six days later, again on BBC, before ITV bring us what could be a group decider with Belgium on June 28th at 7.00pm. That one should be interesting if everything goes to plan for both nations.

The Three Lions were bitterly disappointing four years ago in Brazil, but the young team sent out then have now hit their peak and they’re expected to improve and blaze a trail of glory into the latter stages of the competition. Will they win it? Bookmakers don’t think so and some firms are confident enough to offer as much as 20/1. The chart is dominated by Brazil and Germany as joint-favourites with Spain a 13/2 go.

Kane to emulate Shearer

A fast start is crucial for Southgate’s boys and although points are far more important than performances in the early games on the schedule, the team must try to win over an audience back home who remain largely unconvinced, bordering on disinterested.

The best way to earn their support is with a passionate, convincing win over Tunisia and odds compilers have the England result as favourite with Coral’s 4/11 the general feeling. You’ll find a draw at 4/1 and the Tunisia upset a heavyweight 10/1.

Those prices force England backers into the specials with little or no value available on backing the win. -1 goal on the handicap is there for the confident to have a pop at with 21/20 but the stats may offer something a bit more attractive.

England and Tunisia last faced off back in France 98 when the side managed by Glenn Hoddle and featuring a young Michael Owen battled to a 2-0 result. Alan Shearer captained and scored the opening goal just before half-time, Paul Scholes getting the second near the end of the contest.

Another win to nil for England is available at even money or those who fancy history to repeat itself will get 5/1 on another 2-0 final score. That’s favourite with odds compilers who expect backers to go close to landing a pay-out. Harry Kane – named 2018 captain – to emulate Shearer and bag the first is 9/4.
