Why you should back England
Prior to being shut out by Team USA, the English received goals from five different players in their World Cup opener, and Harry Kane was not one of them. The 29-year-old Kane, who led the side with 12 tallies during qualifying play, notched a pair of assists but left the scoring to his teammates. Bukayo Saka, a 21-year-old forward who has recorded four goals and six assists in 14 contests with Arsenal of the Premier League this season, led the way against Iran with a pair of tallies.
Fellow forward Raheem Sterling also came up with a strong performance, registering a goal and an assist. The 27-year-old has netted three tallies in 12 games during his first campaign with Chelsea after scoring 13 times for Manchester City in 2021-22. The English also received goals from midfielder Jude Bellingham and forwards Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford, who failed to tally in six matches during the 2018 World Cup.
Why you should back Wales
The Welsh have struggled to score of late but have some skilled veterans who can do the job. One is Gareth Bale, who has accounted for Wales' lone goal of the tournament thus far. The 33-year-old winger has tallied in two of his last five contests for the national team.
Another player who is an offensive threat is Aaron Ramsey. The 31-year-old midfielder netted three tallies in six matches during World Cup Qualifying. Meanwhile, forward Kieffer Moore will need to occupy space and draw attention from defenders, which would give Bale and Ramsey more room to maneuver and create opportunities. The 30-year-old Moore is capable of tallying himself, as he has recorded four goals in 14 contests for Bournemouth of the Premier League this season.
