England set to start World Cup preparations in style
England say goodbye to Wembley with a friendly against Peru but Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions are not the only side starting their World Cup preparations this Friday.
With plenty of international football on the cards Oliver Yew has put together an enticing sixfold accumulator which you can back at odds of 16/1 at Ladbrokes.
England start their preparations for Brazil against South American opponents Peru in their last game on British soil before the World Cup gets underway. Roy Hodgson’s young side can say goodbye to Wembley in perfect style with victory by two or more goals.
Not since June 2010 have Spain lost a home international and we don’t think they will be staring defeat in the face when Bolivia visit Sevilla. At 6/5 it’s worth backing Vincente del Bosque’s side to overcome the -2 handicap and kick-off their World Cup preparations in the goals.
The Swiss are a team on the rise as their ranking of eighth in the world suggests. Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side are especially solid at the back having kept seven clean sheets in their last 10 matches and should have far too much quality for a Jamaica side ranked 81st in the world.
Neither Austria nor Iceland will be joining the World Cup party but that doesn’t mean they can’t get into the spirit of a meaningless friendly! And no-one does meaningless friendlies quite like Iceland with Lars Lagerbäck’s side losing seven of their last eight friendly internationals away from home so back Austria for victory here.
Can Northern Ireland do England a favour and put a dent in Uruguay’s World Cup preparations? No, we didn’t think so either so back the Three Lions’ Group D opponents for victory at the Estadio Centenario.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men will be determined to get their World Cup preparations underway with victory over Egypt at Chile’s National Stadium. La Roja are on a run of eight successive matches at home and can extend that record here.
