England v Bulgaria Preview, Predictions and Tips

06th Sep 2019

England host Bulgaria as they look to continue their perfect start and take a huge step towards qualification from group A in the Euro's.

Gareth Southgate's side who crashed out in the Semi-Final of the World Cup have been in fine form so far making no mistakes or taking any game for granted in Group A. They have scored 10 goals in 2 games and only conceded 1 courtesy of a defensive mistake. We don't anticipate they'll take their foot off the gas here and many fringe players will look to capitalise on debut's and second chances.

One of those players will be Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings who has had a fantastic start to his Premier League campaign with the newly promoted side and earned himself a call up. He ranks first in the Premier League for headed clearances and blocked shots and may get his chance to shine in the England team tomorrow evening. Another debut call up was Manchester United's Wan-Bissaka who has unfortunately ruled himself out with a quad injury. Jesse Lingard also missed training with a stomach bug and looks set to miss out.Image result for james maddison england
James Maddison has been in scintillating form for Leicester in the start of the campaign and will be the man to watch. As will Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho who has 3 goals and 3 assists to his name already this campaign. However, he could miss out if Southgate opts for a front free of Rashford, Kane and Sterling. He could consider himself hard done by if he does miss out, as will Leicester's Jamie Vardy who scored 2 and assisted in their 3-1 win last weekend over Bournemouth.

Bulgaria have reported no injury concerns but manager Krasimir Balakov has included 6 uncapped players in his squad list including veteran goalkeeper Hristo Ivanov.

Predicted England Line Up

Pickford; Alexander-Arnold, Maguire, Keane, Chilwell; Rice, Winks, Henderson; Sterling, Sancho, Kane. 

Predicted Belgium Line Up

Iliev; Popov, Nedyalkov, Bozhikov, Goranov; Milanov, Slavchev, Popov, Sarmov; Ivanov, Despodov
