ENGLAND have struggled to break down sides and may have to be patient against Iceland tonight.
Roy Hodgson’s side are massive favourites to reach the last eight but performances have got worse instead of better and it’s difficult to back them at a best 4-7 at McBookie and Ladbrokes.
After playing OK against Russia but conceding late England needed an injury-time strike to see off Wales and failed to net against Slovakia.
In fact all of their goals have come after the break so if if you think they’ll win consider draw/England HT/FT.
Iceland are enjoying their tournament debut but were the only side not to keep a single clean sheet at the group stage.
Team spirit and 100 per cent effort is their strength and they’re likely to be unchanged for the fourth game in a row.
Hodgson rotated against Slovakia but will return to full strength with Harry Kane likely to replace Jamie Vardy. Daniel Sturridge will start and it looks like Raheem Sterling will replace Adam Lallana and be charged with getting at the full-backs.
Iceland are compact but not great and England should make chances. I’m on returning skipper Wayne Rooney to make the difference and he is 3-1 at McBookie to score.
Gylfi Sigurdsson will pose Iceland’s only threat but England players know him well and he should be nullified.
I’m not convinced by England’s defence but think they’ll win to nil – 1-0 or 2-0 – at 11-10 with McBookie and bet365.
