Slovenia vs England match prediction

Once again England are way under the odds and they have done nothing to deserve to be such a short favourite here, especially when they are struggling to even score.

Slovenia have proven a handful and they had the measure of the USA early and will be no pushover for the Poms.

England are notorious for failing when they are supposed to succeed and bookies want you to take $1.44 or so to find out.

We would prefer to take Slovenia on the handicap at twice that price considering they only need a draw to qualify.

The USA have been very solid with good performances against both Slovenia and England which resulted in draws.

Algeria have been sound without setting the world alight and they managed to keep England goalless which says they are handy down back.

United States vs Algeria match predictions

The United States have been impressive at times and they have players capable of kicking goals which have been in short supply at this tournament at times.

We fancy the Americans to win this game.
