England Tunisia Live Stream – Match Preview
England face Tunisia for their opening match of a World Cup (WC) twenty years after doing so in the 1998 finals in France.
Back then, England manager Gareth Southgate was in a squad that won 2-0 over the north African nation, and while a similarly comfortable win is expected here, nothing can be taken for granted.
The Three Lions (ENG) got to this tournament as comfortable group winners, ahead of Slovakia – the worst-performing of the nine UEFA qualification round runners up. Tunisia’s route to Russia was far more uncertain, with Nabil Maaloul’s men besting DR Congo by a single point.
It has been exactly a year since England last tasted defeat, with a 3-2 reverse in Paris back in June 2017 being the second of just two blots on Southgate’s record as England manager.
The Three Lions are unbeaten in ten since that night in Paris, most recently overcoming Nigeria and Costa Rica to build some momentum.
Tunisia’s latest match brought a 1-0 friendly defeat to Spain, but their form has been good overall in recent months.
A 2-2 draw against European champions Portugal back in May was a sign that things are moving in the right direction for Tunisia.
Players to watch:
Harry Kane is raring to go for England, with the Tottenham hotshot back to full fitness after sustaining an injury against Bournemouth back in March.
Wabhi Khazri is Tunisia’s best hope of troubling England’s backline, with the Rennes forward having an international strike rate of 0.33 per game.
A close call? Seven of England’s last eight matches have produced under 2.5 goals.Tunisia are without a clean sheet in three matches.
England’s competitive record against African sides is: W2, D3, L0.Tunisia’s historical competitive record on European soil reads: W0, D2, L4.
