Daily Tips – No stroll for England


Wayne-Rooney-England-300x211England take on Iceland in the final last-16 clash on Monday in what could prove to be a tougher encounter for Roy Hodgson’s men than many expect.

Iceland are unbeaten in the tournament so far with a win and two draws. Lars Lagerback’s side do have a few stars but their key strength is their work-rate and unity, shown not just at Euro 2016 itself but through the qualifying campaign and right the way back to their ever-so-close bid to reach the World Cup two years ago.

Meanwhile, England could be accused of not hitting their full potential yet and with just three goals in as many outings so far it could be another tense encounter for the Three Lions later.

England will still dominate the match in terms of possession and Iceland could start to tire as the game wears on, given Lagerback has selected the same starting line-up in all three games to date. It could take the Three Lions a while to find a breakthrough though and my top bet for this clash is an England win with under 2.5 goals, which pays out at 6/4.

There is also talk that Daniel Sturridge could be handed a starting spot and he is worth a look at 15/4 to open the scoring. The Liverpool man has one goal so far despite limited time on the pitch and he has the kind of quality to create a chance out of nothing, which is what England may need to seize the advantage against a stubborn Iceland back line.
