England To Get Up And Running Against Uruguay
England To Beat Uruguay
Matt Le Tissier has been on fire with his football tips during the 2014 World Cup, get betting advice from the Saints legend ahead of Uruguay v England, live tonight at 8pm on ITV.
Uruguay looked to have the easiest opening fixture in Group D, but were stunned by a resilient Costa Rica side and on that evidence shouldn’t pose too many problems for England. Even if Luis Suarez gets the nod to partner Edinson Cavani up-front, the rest of their team looks pretty average and they’ll struggle to deal with England’s pacey attackers.
It was refreshing to see England really have a go against the Italians and while we lost 2-1, there are still positives to take from the game. Raheem Sterling was a constant threat and although Wayne Rooney has been getting some stick, he did set up Daniel Sturridge for the equaliser and the team played well on the whole.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “11/10 with William Hill on England getting up and running against the South Americans looks worth snapping up and I wouldn’t even put you off taking England with a -1 Asian handicap at 21/10 with bet365.
Rooney is overdue a World Cup goal, and if he does start in a central position, then the price boost of 7/1 with Ladbrokes on him to open the scoring is too big a price to pass up.”
Maxi Pereira misses out for Uruguay after getting himself unnecessarily sent off against Costa Rica and could be replaced by Alvaro Gonzalez. Luis Suarez has declared himself 100% fit, but he didn’t leave the bench when his side were losing in the last match, so it will be interesting to see how he gets on.
Roy Hodgson is unlikely to make too many changes from the side which lost to Italy, although Wayne Rooney could be deployed in a more central role. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has stepped up his training and could be fit enough to make an appearance from the bench if needed.
