Tip: 1 Half Over 0.5 Goals
Match Result: 6:1(5:0) WON!!!
|With the first week of the World Cup (WC) providing many firsts, the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium will see the first-ever meeting between England and WC debutants Panama.|
|The ‘Three Lions’ march on after securing a last minute 2-1 win over worthy opponents Tunisia in their opening game. Gareth Southgate will want to better Belgium’s 3-0 win over Panama, with the ‘Red Devils’ (BEL) waiting in the wings in England’s final Group G game.|
|Separated by 43 places in the FIFA rankings, 55th-placed Panama surprised many by holding Belgium 0-0 at half-time. The ‘Canal Men’ (PAN) were eventually barged aside, but did have an opportunity to equalise at 1-0 through a Michael Murillo saved shot.|
|With a difference of 14 goals in their respective qualifying stages, Panama will look for their debut goal against a team who gave away a penalty in their opening match. But with 17 shots on goal in their first match, England will hope for a better conversion rate against a keeper who has conceded 122 career goals in 129 international appearances.|
|Players to watch: With eight Premiership hat-tricks to his name, Harry Kane has scored three braces in 15 international goals.|
|New York Red Bulls’ Michael Murillo had a shot on target in his last game and is known for his speedy runs down the right – can he add to his two international goals here?|
|Stat attack: England are unbeaten in 11 games (W8, D3), while Panama have one win in eight (W1, D2, L5).|
|England have not conceded two goals in a game in the last 11.|
|Panama have not scored as the ‘away team’ in tournament competition since their 2016 qualifiers.|
|Kane scored eight of his 39 Premier League goals in the 46th-60th minute – Panama have conceded four in this period in their last five games (in all competitions).|
