Kammy’s international tips – a shock-free night at Wembley


Chris Kamara gives us his picks on Tuesday night’s European qualifiers and England should walk it.

England v Montenegro, Group G, 20:00
Kammy’s verdict: Home win
Too easy this one, even with half the England team out of action. England are sixth in the world, Montenegro are one place behind Burkina Faso. The Montenegrins might have won three out of three, but they’ve all been by 1-0, so I’m going for an England win, Rooney to score first and more than 2.5 goals.

Scotland v Spain, Group I, 20:00
Kammy’s verdict: Away win
Craig Levein said Spain are one of the best teams ever, which shows how much he fancies his chances. And Scotland only just limped past Lithuania in their last home game.

Slovakia v Rep of Ireland, Group B, 19:30
Kammy’s verdict: Away win
Slovakia lost to Armenia in their last game, so they need the points as much as Ireland, but I think the Irish will nick this one because they have to.

Faroe Islands v Northern Ireland, Group C, 16:00
Kammy’s verdict: Away win
For one night Northern Ireland get to feel like Brazil, although watch out – the Faroes beat Lithuania at home in World Cup qualifying just over a year ago.

Switzerland v Wales, Group G, 19:30
Kammy’s verdict: Draw
I always feel Wales should do a lot better than they do, and I can see them frustrating Switzerland, whose success in recent years has been based on eking out 1-0 wins.

Wales are 13/3 to get a win in Basle. See the latest 2012 Euro qualifying football betting odds markets here.
