Spain v England: Preview
After drawing 0-0 against Croatia last Friday night, Gareth Southgate’s English squad head to Seville to face Spain in their 3rd fixture of the opening stages of the UEFA Nations League.
Spain, who have won both of their matches so far, may be the bookmakers favourites to win, however England desperately need a victory if they want to stay in the competition.
England haven’t secured a victory against Spain in their last 4 matches on Spanish soil, and have only managed 3 wins in their last 13 matches against Luis Enrique’s side.
We know that Southgate’s squad have the talent and ability to beat the Spaniards, but this will be a tough match for England to win, and unless they manage to translate opportunities into goals, they could end up being booted out of the competition with one match still to play.
Since their amazing performances at World Cup 2018 in Russia, England's form seems to have fizzled out with only one win in their last five matches in all competitions.
Southgate’s men also haven’t won any of their UEFA Nations League matches so far, starting with a loss to Spain, any then only holding Croatia to a draw in last Friday's match.
There were plenty of opportunities for England against Croatia, but with Kane hitting the crossbar and Rashford missing 2 great chances, Gareth Southgate’s men really need to up their game against Spain and make the most of their ability and skills up front.
England only have one point in the bag coming into this match, and if they want to stay in the competition, they really need a win against Spain to give them any chance before they face Croatia in the final match of the opening stages.
Unfortunately for Gareth Southgate, a number of key players are injured/suspended, and with Kane not scoring in his last 6 matches for England; the Spanish will be difficult to beat.
Joe Gomez is set to start in place of a suspended John Stones in defence, while Jordan Henderson is also missing after being served with a ban.
Danny Rose and Luke Shaw are amongst five other key players that are set to miss the game.
England may be sitting joint bottom of the group, but if they create enough chances against Spain, Southgate’s hopes of making it to the next round may just be kept alive!
Spain come into the match holding the top position in UEFA Nations League A, Group 4.
Having beaten England in their opening fixture with a 2-1 scoreline, the Spaniards then went on to secure an astounding 6-0 victory against the World Cup runners up, Croatia.
British Bookmakers offer Spain as the favourites for the match and a win against England would be enough to see Enrique’s men secure a spot in the Nations League finals next June.
Spain won their last Nations League against England at Wembley, and with a home advantage and the fact that they’re unbeaten in their past 38 competitive home games, it’s easy to see why bookmakers offer the Spaniards as the favourites to win this crucial match.
Luckily Enrique doesn’t have too many injury concerns, with Sergio Busquets, Marcos Alonso and Marco Asensio all set to return for Spain having missed the Wales friendly last week.
Our prediction for this UEFA Nations League match: Spain 2, England 0.
