England v Spain Preview and Betting Tips
England are in action for the first time since the World Cup, can they carry that positivity on in to the new UEFA Nations League? They host Spain at Wembley in one of the picks of the competition, which represents a massive task for Gareth Southgate. His side start a new international campaign exactly where they want to end up, with the final of the next Euros coming at Wembley in 2020.
Top Betting Tip
- England Draw No Bet – at 19/20 with Ladbrokes
Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
England have Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana missing for this clash, after both pulled out of Southgate’s squad. The Three Lions saw Gary Cahill and Jamie Vardy retire after the World Cup, with a new, youthful crop of players coming through. Aside from that, almost all of the World Cup squad has made it back in to the squad for this game.
Spain’s squad has a good Premier League influence to it, with five players from English clubs selected. Four of those come from Chelsea, including the world’s most expensive goalkeeper – Kepa Arrizabalaga. Marcos Alonso could receive his first cap, while there’s a reprieve for Alvaro Morata up front, as Luis Enrique looks to put his spin on things ahead of his first game.
England vs Spain Tips
The Three Lions may have high spirits after the World Cup, but the bookies are seemingly in on the joy. England can be found at 17/10 with BetVictor here, with the Spanish around the same, if not a tad shorter. That’s incredibly negative, especially when this game should be seen as opportunity for England. While they may not have the greatest record against elite opposition, Southgate’s England had a 2-0 lead over Spain in a recent home friendly, only throwing it away at the end.
This is a Spanish side without Gerard Pique or Andres Iniesta. They struggled against Portugal, Morocco and Russia at the World Cup. A new manager has taken charge, and now uncertainty reigns. Meanwhile, England are in their strongest position in years, and they’ll be aiming to use that in order to finally take a big scalp in a competitive game. The Nations League is the perfect place to do that, and we’re backing England Draw No Bet at 19/20 with Ladbrokes. We’re also going for Harry Kane to score any time, which is 11/8 with Coral.

England World Cup Record
Well, we’ve won one World Cup, but how have we done in the rest of them? To be honest, not brilliantly well. Losing semi-finalists in 1990 has been the next closest we’ve been to winning another World Cup, and we blew some of our best chances by not evening bothering to enter the first three tournaments!
Our overall World Cup record, prior to Russia 2018, reads as follows… Played: 62, Won: 26, Drawn: 20, Lost: 16, Scored: 79 goals, Conceded: 56 goals

- 13. Bryan Robson – 26 goals
- 14. Geoff Hurst – 24 goals
Amongst those fine, fine players here is a player we think deserves special mention:
Vivian Woodward, who played for England between 1903 and 1911, scored 29 goals in just 23 England matches. He played for Tottenham and Chelsea and captained Great Britain to gold medals at the 1908 Olympics in London and the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. He also served in the British Army during the First World War and sustained injuries that meant he had to retire from football. We can’t see many getting near his goal-scoring average for England though!
