International Football: Cry Harry for England…

England host Montenegro tonight at Wembley Stadium, needing just a point to qualify for the European Championships in 2020.

The Three Lions are strong favourites for this game, having put together some impressive results over the past few years. They have won their last 17 home qualifiers for the Euros and World Cup, scoring 55 and conceding just six in the process.

They will also be keen to put on a show tonight as the FA celebrates the 1000th match for the senior men’s team and also to show the training bust up between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez was just a flash in the pan.

Montenegro, on the other hand, have struggled of late, being winless in their last nine qualifiers, including losing 5-1 at home in the reverse fixture in March.

Bearing all this in mind, we think England could win in style tonight. But the bookies realise this and all the main goalscorers are strongly odds on to net tonight. So how do we play this?

The 5/1 on offer that Marcus Rashford score a brace does appeal as the young United striker has been showing a return to top form of late. But instead we’ll return to one of our favourite bets – Harry Maguire to score a header. England are sure to have plenty of possession and that usually translates into set pieces, and thus chances for the dominant central defender to net.
