Betting preview ahead of England's Nations League opener versus Iceland

England kick-off their Nations League group stage campaign with a trip to Reykjavík to take on Iceland on Saturday evening.

Five England Internationals Who Must Move Clubs To Get Their Careers Back On Track

The 2020/21 season is only weeks away and it will be a season where many players are playing for their places in their national team squads ahead of the rescheduled Euro 2021 competition. England will go into that tournament as one of the favourites and Gareth Southgate will have many hard decisions to make. His squad, as currently constructed, is a little uneven. He has great depth at right-back, but left-back isn't so strong. The central defensive options aren't at …
Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Gareth Southgate had a few interesting thoughts on Marcus Rashford after England’s 4-0 defeat of Bulgaria. The manager admitted that he had, like so many others, almost willed the player to develop as a number nine since the then-teenager burst onto the scene in 2016.

Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

On Sunday, England put six - yes, six goals - past Panama to seal qualification to the next round in a manner they have arguably never done before at the grandest of stages. It was a blend of contrasts throughout.  For it was reticent, yet an impressively flamboyant display at times. It was in some ways, imperfect and error-strewn yet incredibly clinical and ruthless when it really mattered. It was a matured performance; coming from a bunch of mostly wild …
