- Wales vs England
- Tunisia vs France
- Croatia vs Belgium
- Serbia vs Switzerland
- Cameroon vs Brazil
We’ve enlisted our tipster ‘The Mailman’ to give his picks for the action ahead. Let’s see if you agree!
The Mailman says…
France (vs Tunisia)
The Tunisians followed their impressive performance against Croatia with a drab showing versus Australia.
It was lifeless on the whole, with those from Northern Africa unable to produce enough gilt-edged chances to head towards a return of the points.
Fourteen shots and 0.94xG, to be precise, now means they need a win against France.
That need to win will likely encourage opening spaces for France to exploit. Not ideal against the likes of Antoine Griezmann and company.
Serbia (vs Switzerland)
The Serbs weren’t quite at the level of Brazil, but not many are.
During World Cup qualification, Serbia went unbeaten, winning six from eight while also topping their recent Nations League group with one loss.
In short, this Serbia outfit is a tough nut to crack, equipped with clinical frontmen that’ll shoot on sight - Aleksandar Mitrović (5.28 shots per/90 - World Cup qualifying).
One would assume that if the Swiss afford Serbia similar opportunities as they did against Cameroon (0.70xGA), Serbia will take advantage.
Wales (vs England)
There will be a response from Wales - there always is against England!
The Iranian performance will have hurt, though the better team won. Unable to handle Iran on the counter and in transition - Wales conceded 21 attempts (1.49xG) as they limped towards a 0-2 loss.
Considering England registered six goals against Wales’ most-recent opposition, it would take a brave person to side with the Dragons versus an English ensemble needing three points to secure top spot.
