England will be looking to overcome the inferiority complex they have had in major competitions over the years. They have only won the World Cup once in their history, and they will come here looking to change that. They will have a seemingly easy job in the opener, as they will lock horns against Tunisia.
Tunisia are not a very strong side and are expected to finish either 3rd or 4th in this group. England and Belgium will most likely monopolize the top two spots, which leaves Tunisia with virtually no qualifying hopes. However, they are here and they will try to get the best out of this experience. Their whole game will be to feed forward Wahbi Khazri, who is by far their most talented player. This will be the fifth time they participate in a World Cup, while they were the first African team to win a World Cup match back in 1978 in Argentina.
England were spectacular in the qualifiers as usual, where they finished at the top of their respective group (8-0-2). They didn’t have a very difficult group though and were actually lucky with the World Cup draw. They are expected to fight with Belgium for the two top spots of the group. England have found a solid forward after a couple of decades, as Harry Kane is a complete striker. However, this generation of players might not be ready enough to compete in this World Cup.
