An England Win To Nil Is The Best Bet For Friendly Clash With Nigeria

Nigeria are one of five teams from Africa to qualify for the World Cup this summer, and prepare for their third consecutive tournament with a friendly with England at Wembley. This is England’s first of two pre-World Cup games; the second for Gareth Southgate’s side takes place against Costa Rica the following Thursday at Elland Road, and the Three Lions will be hoping to lay down a marker with a win that could affect their World Cup odds...

England v Nigeria Betting Odds

England haven’t suffered a defeat since June last year, in a 3-2 loss to France, and have kept clean sheets in six of their last eight. However, they have drawn three of their last four, and haven’t scored more than one goal in a match since last September, against Slovakia. Therefore, under 2.5 goals within the game is 4/6 with betfair, England to win by a one goal margin is 9/4 (BoyleSports), and England to replicate their trademark winning score with a solid 1-0 is 22/5 (BetVictor) are all sound predictions.

Two of the Lions’ last three goals have come in the first half, in 27th and 26th minute respectively. Backing the first goal to come around this half hour mark, betfair offer 5/1 between 21-30 minutes.

One of those goals int the Lions’ previous three victories has come from the talismanic Harry Kane, who finished the domestic season with Tottenham with one of his typical powerhouse runs; the striker managed to score six in his last seven Premier League games, any is by a far margin the favourite to bag a goal anytime within this match, 5/6 with bet365.

England v Nigeria First Scorer Odds

However, on the eve of the most anticipated sporting competition in the world, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising if Southgate elected to leave his marksmen out for the majority of either the Nigeria or Costa Rica, for risk of injury. As a result of this probability backing someone who will probably not be chosen to start in Russia, Danny Welbeck at 11/2 as first goalscorer may be preferable.

Brighton’s new signing Leon Balogun may also feature for Nigeria. The central defender has just moved from Mainz. For him to help block out England’s surging attack up until the interval, Coral offer best for a draw at half-time at 21/20. Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has scored two for Nigeria in his last four appearances for the Super Eagles and he is at 11/2 with betfair as an anytime goalscorer.

Nigeria have won just one of their last four games, including a 1-1 draw with Democratic Republic of Congo in their last fixture, and an England win to nil at 6/5 with Bet Victor is the best bet here.
