As we’re getting closer to World Cup 2018 step by step, international matches will be played this weekend. One of the most interesting encounters is Holland vs England, for sure. While the countries are preparing for the World Cup, we should also prepare ourselves with the best odds on the market, placing out bets on our favorite teams.
Holland has lost strength in recent years. In the first place, they couldn’t become entitled to participate Euro 2016, and now to World Cup. When the situation got worse, complains and critisicims started to roll in. In the eliminations for the World Cup, they lost the second place to Sweden because of the goal difference despite of the fact that they held 19 points. So, they lost the right to compete in play-offs. After the eliminations, they had two matches. First, they beat Scotland 1-0, and then Romania with a score of 3-0. The squad includes the following players: Marco Bizot, Jasper Cillessen, Jeroen Zoet, Patrick van Aanholt, Nathan Ake, Virgil van Dijk, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Hans Hateboer, Matthijs de Ligt, Kenny Tete, Stefan de Vrij, Donny van de Beek, Davy Proepper, Marten de Roon , Kevin Strootman, Guus Til, Tonny Vilhena, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ryan Babel, Steven Berghuis, Memphis Depay, Bas Dost, Justin Kluivert, Quincy Promes and Wout Weghorst.
On the other hand, England ripped off the right to compete in World Cup. They were in a group with pretty easy opponents such as Belgium, Tunusia and Panama. Before the World Cup, Holland will be the last country they will play against. They tied with Germany and Brasilia without any goals. Goal-scorer Kane won’t be playing due to his injury. English squad includes Joe Hart, Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland, Nick Pope, Kyle Walker, Kieran Tripper, Ryan Bertrand, Danny Rose, John Stones, James Tarkowski, Alfie Mawson, Joe Gomez, Harry Maguire, Eric Dier, Jack Wilshere, Jordan Henderson, Jake Livermore, Adam Lallana, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dele Alli, Raheem Sterling, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Lewis Cook, Danny Welbeck, Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford.
English team is the favorite of this match. However, Holland starts a new page with Koeman. Despite playing very bad for a while, they can make a change and move forward. Most probably, it will be a fun game with plenty of goals. There are also good values on both teams to score.
