Tunisia vs England: Team News, Preview, Probable Line Up, Betting Odds and TV Guide

England are clear favorites versus the injury-riddled minnows, but the team game of the Eagles will pose threat on the Three Lions.


World Cup 2018 is already at its peak with some entertaining and enthralling football even before all teams have commenced their journey. England, the underachievers, will kick-start their campaign on Monday night versus Tunisia and will be desperate to shake off recent shambles and script an impressive run.

Tunisia, the African minnows, made it to the finals following a headstrong qualifying campaign. The Eagles of Carthage do not have a star name, but they made it to Russia on merit and great team effort. The Three Lions are favorites to win the tie, but it won’t be an easy ride against a spirited side.


Tunisia vs England Injury Update

Tunisia have lost several top players through injuries prior to the World Cup but might suffer further blow due to concerns regarding Chaalali, Ben Amor, and the influential Ali Maaloul who are doubtful as well.

England suffered an injury scare when Marcus Rashford suffered a knock a few days back in training. He is up and running but might not be risked from the start versus Tunisia. Fabian Delph is uncertain too due to family reasons as he is preparing to fly home for the birth of his third child.
