England will be gunning to start Euro 2020 with a win when they play Croatia at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon in a rematch of the 2018 World Cup semi-final.
Zlatko Dalic’s men won that clash 2-1 despite falling behind early, although the Three Lions did exact some revenge in November that year with a victory by the same scoreline in the Nations League.
bet365 make England 4/6 (1.67) favourites to take the points in the first Group D game of the tournament with Croatia out at 9/2 (5.50), and Goal’s tipster has used the Bet Builder tool to come up with a longshot 50/1 (51.0) bet for the game.
Bet Builder allows users to put multiple selections from the same game into a single bet and the 50/1 (51.0) consists of: Harry Kane to score and Kyle Walker & Sime Vrsaljko to be booked.
The form of Kane will be key if England are to realise their potential and win Euro 2020, with the national team captain having scored 34 times for his country in just 54 appearances.
His six goals at the 2018 World Cup meant he took home the Golden Boot and 33 strikes at club level for Tottenham this season will no doubt give him plenty of confidence heading into this tournament.
As well, Kane will be on penalty duty and his thirst for goals means he certainly represents his country’s best chance of breaching Croatia’s defence.
In terms of bookings, Kyle Walker actually has a strong disciplinary record for Manchester City this season but has picked up eight yellows in 49 starts for England – including two at the 2018 World Cup.
The defender also holds the rare distinction of being just one of 16 Three Lions players who have been sent off in a competitive match – having seen red against Iceland last September.
Finally, Sime Vrsaljko endured a rough campaign for Atletico Madrid after injury ruled him out for the first three months and then he largely played second fiddle behind Kieran Trippier, but he still managed to pick up two bookings in just six starts.
His discipline for Croatia offers similar reading, having started 38 times for the 2018 World Cup runners-up and been yellow carded on nine occasions.
