Tip England - Panama
England fans often have a nervous time supporting their team and that was the case when they played their opening fixture in this group. It looked as if that might not be the case after Harry Kane gave them an early lead and their pace greatly worried Tunisia. Then they made a stupid mistake and let their opponents back into the game and had to rely on a late Kane goal to get the winner. The England side still seems to have defensive problems and that will cause problems later in the tournament but they should be able to get to six points with a win over Panama. They will get lots of possession and again that pace they have will cause Panama plenty of headaches, though it'd be good to see more from Raheem Sterling and playing Marcus Rashford from the start would be a good decision.
Panama managed to go the first half without conceding against Belgium but then the floodgates opened in the second half and the Belgians ran out easy 3-0 winners. Panama''s coach admits that his team isn't as fit as European sides so this could be another long game for them as they continually try to keep up with the pacy England side. They have only won one of their last eight games and the selection here is to go for Englan to get the win and this time their fans should be able to relax a little bit more as their team leads at both half and full time.
Key points England - Panama

Conclusion England - Panama
England fans should have an easier time watching this game. There is the worry that Panama will defend hard as they did agaiinst Belgium and England could get frustrated but they have the attackers to ensure that the breakthrough will come. The English side should have gained plenty of confidence from the win over Tunisia and are more than capable of getting a big win in this match and reduce the gap in goal difference between them and Belgium going into the final game. Panama fought well in the first half against Belgium before crumbling in the second 45 minutes but the Belgians could have played a lot better earlier in the game. Go for England to win this match and to be leading at both half and full time.
