Perfect attacking forces of England

England get themselves prepared to the qualifying stage of 2018 World Cup pretty well.

They are leading Group F with 20 points after 8 matches. They managed to succeed in every qualification game, and only two matches ended with a draw.

Considering the fact that their closest contender – Slovakia with 5 points behind, England should beat Slovenia to gain the place at the finals of 2018 World Cup.

England’s game style is very powerful in attack. During their last 8 games, they netted at least 2 goals almost in each match.

Their defence operate off the charts, as the squad of Southgate missed only 3 shots in all games.

Slovenia is markedly worse in away games

Slovenia lost all the chances to fight with England for the 1st place, but at least can get the 2nd one.

Currently, Slovenia take the 3rd place with only 1 point behind Slovakia. If Slovenia succeed, they may improve their qualifying results.

The team of Slovenia is up for a closed style of playing and like to counterattack. Due to such game style, the squad of Katanec score quite few goals (10), but miss no more (4).

Slovenia are much better on their home soil, and playing away they managed to get only one win against Malta in qualification.

Today we bet on an effective duel of the hosts because of some crucial reasons:

England tremendously play on the home turf and invariably crush 2 goals almost in each match. Probably, England would also like to get a ticket right to 2018 World Cup, and that stimulate them to move forward.

Slovenia are strong in defence but are more weaker in away of home. Vigorous players of England would certainly use that as an advantage and have at least 2 effective attacks.

Guests may answer back and net a goal in the gates of opponents. Nevertheless, considering all the factors, we believe England would be the winner by all accounts.
