FIRST up on Sunday it's England and this should be a straightforward win for Gareth Southgate's side.

After that the attention turns to Group H with Japan v Senegal and Poland v Colombia.

Both top seeds lost their first games so the late match should be a cracker.

Here's my thoughts on the three Sunday clashes.

England v Panama (1pm)

The Central Americans are one of the weakest teams in Russia and were overpowered 3-0 by Belgium after battling to hold them at half-time.

England made a fast start against Tunisia before losing their way and conceding then getting out of jail with Kane's last-gasp header.

If they race out of the blocks again they can be backed to win HT/FT at 5-6 with Ladbrokes which is better value than just to win at 2-9.

Panama posed little threat to the Belgian defence until they trailed 3-0 so consider England to win to nil at 13-20 with McBookie even though they conceded a penalty against the Tunisians.

A 2-0 scoreline is possible at 19-4 at Unibet or if you go with the “trendy” 1-0 that pays 19-4 at Unibet. Panama have conceded two or more only twice in 10.

Kane is first-scorer favourite at 21-10 with Marathonbet and I wouldn't put anyone off backing him while to net at any time he is 6-10 at William Hill.

Southgate is likely to freshen up his side ahead of the meeting with Belgium and one change will be the injured Delle Alli dropping out for Ruben Loftus-Cheek who possesses less of a goal threat.

Marcus Rashford impressed off the bench in the opener and is set to start at the expense of Raheem Sterling. The Man United kid is 4-1 at bet365 to score first.

At a bigger price I'd consider John Stones who dominated the aerial battles against Tunisia and it was his thumping header that was saved for Kane to hit the opener. The big centre-half also missed a good chance after the break.

I'm gambling on Stones to score at 12-1 with Unibet and for the more ambitious he is 35-1 to break the deadlock.

Poland v Colombia (7pm)

It's last-chance saloon for Poland and Colombia on Sunday after opening defeats in Group H.

The two antepost favourites to make it through lost to Senegal and Japan respectively.

Colombia had an excuse with Carlos Sanchez sent off in the third minute before Japan put on a decent show against 10 men.

Poland's performance couldn't be defended. They were simply awful, with star striker Robert Lewandowski anonymous, as they went 2-0 down to Senegal before grabbing a late consolation.

The Poles are top seeds and qualified with ease after eight wins in 10 but in finals they've lost seven out of nine.

On the evidence of the openers Colombia are in better shape and world-class midfielder James Rodriguez is set to start after only being fit enough for a place on the bench.

Alongside Radamel Falcao he could make a difference and I'm backing the South Americans to win at 5-4 with bet365.

Both defences look a bit shaky so consider Colombian and both to score at 19-5 with Ladbrokes and also over 2.5 match goals at 6-5 with McBookie.

Monaco centre-back Kamil Glik looks set to miss out again so Thiago Cionek, who scored an OG against Senegal, is likely to start again.

Falcao, in his first finals, is worth a look at 23-5 with Marathonbet to score first while Lewandowski is the same price to make his mark with the opener.

Senegal v Japan (4pm)

Senegal were superb in their opener and looked the best of the African teams on show.

They are 5-4 with McBookie to beat an ageing Japan who are unlikely to be able to live with their power and pace.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane didn't get his expected goal last week and is 5-1 at William Hill to strike first and 5-4 to net his tournament opener.

    I’ve seen something which I think is a belter on betfair ( minutes after I’d taken England to win to nil @ a tad under 7/10.
    In one of the tabs ( I think if you show all bets ), total corners under 21.5 @ 4/5 with betfair.

    I think England will spend most of the match camped in the Panama half and i’d expect England to dominate the possession stats. Whilst England can be dangerous from corners, they don’t seem to be going all out for them, they’d rather cut in early an do through-balls.

    Even if Panama get 5 corners ( highly unlikely ), do you really think England will get 17 corners to bust the bet? Nope. Me neither.

    Sadly if you bet with betfair, you cannot lump this into a bet builder on the same match, you have to have it as a single.

    Good luck folks.

      Maybe double check that corner bet; it’s not quite what you think.

      For reference, go to bet365 and their corner markets for the England game.

      See how they’ve set the over/under line at 9.5?

      Bit weird that betfair would set it 11 higher, don’t you think?

      So keep scrolling down on bet365 and as if by magic you’ll see the multicorners market which has a line set at 21.5 with o/u each paying 5/6.

      That’s most likely the bet you’ve placed at betfair.

      Have a read through their rules and it’ll explain what it is.

    France looked like they were going to keep it competitive until they got blown out in thr second half. Nice to see an England win at last. Argentina are in big trouble going into the Championship v NZ, Aus and SA.

    C’mon England!! ⚽️

      Cheers, guy in my local has just asked “is this an England pub”.
      Three of us had a tenner on Stones first at 28s and of course I had a few quid on him any time.
      You can imagine the cheers.
