England vs Russia by Atipico07
I think that England is clear favourite to win today. They are in a good form as they won 8 of the last 10 matches played. They are a young team and they are playing amazing since Capello was sacked. They are a very offensive minded team that scores a lot but they also concede as they have conceded 6 goals in the last 5 matches played. A solid performance might quell fears about England's defence, the composition and formation of their offense and their manager whose last tournaments record is not that good. I think that they will have not a tough match against Russia.
Russia is in troubles..Leonid Slutsky's side have suffered a double injury blow in their midfield.. Alan Dzagoev and Igor Denisov are out injured, and they left the team without a single decent defensive midfielder as captain Roman Shirokov is out of form too..Last friendly matches were not good as they won only 1 of the last 5 matches played. They have scored 8 goals conceding 10! They are offensive minded and they will try to attack trying to score one or more goals against England's defense.
Considering both defense, I'm expecting a very open match but at the end England will win. 1 & over 2,5 seems to be a good choice.
