International Football: Maguire to use his head…

We’re not necessarily big fans of international football outside of the major tournaments, never quite sure of team selections and motivations. But England against Belgium has more going for it than most games, and we’ll have a go.

This game sees England, the fourth ranked side in the world, host FIFA’s top side, the first meeting between the two since the World Cup.

Belgium won both encounters at that tournament, a group game and the third/fourth playoff, and we make them favourites for today’s clash.

England struggled to create chances from open play in both of their games in the Nations League against Iceland and Denmark, scoring just once. But we know from the World Cup how dangerous they can be from set pieces.

SkyBet bet has offered 22/1 that Harry Maguire scores his his head. We think the big central defender will be heading forward for every corner or free kick, and that price is too tempting to ignore.

Recommendation:

Maguire to score a header, 1 pt, at 22/1, SkyBet
