England vs Slovenia betting preview
World Cup odds – England vs Slovenia
Eastern Europeans, Slovenia, are England’s opponents for their final game in the group stages – a must win tie following two disappointing draws. This will only be Slovenia’s second World Cup finals appearance, the previous time being in 2002 when they failed to progress past the group stages. Given this lack of experience, England, participating in their 13th World Cup finals, are the bookies’ strong favourites going into this one. Bwin.com are offering fairly generous odds of 1/2 on an England victory which certainly seems worth a bet.

England have a much stronger squad than Slovenia. The squad is full of experienced internationals as well as some very gifted footballers. This experience is vital against the likes of Slovenia who will look to frustrate teams such as England. England will have to stay calm and stick to their game plan should things not go quite their way, and the experienced players will have a big influence on how the team as a whole reacts to such a situation. Players like Gerrard and Rooney should have enough going forward to prevent Slovenia holding them out for very long anyway, and if England manage an early goal, they could go on to win the match emphatically. Despite this it may be worth a punt on it to be a draw at half-time with England going on to win the match at 3/1 with Paddy Power.
Slovenia are a fairly unknown entity given their lack of ‘household names’. However, with two solid performances and results from their opening two game Solvenia have managed to work this in their favour as England may not know what to expect. However, given the number of scouts England will have had watching Slovenia, a lack of knowledge is something which seems highly unlikely. Slovenia’s most recognisable player to English fans is likely to be West Brom’s Robert Koren. The Slovenian captain is a capable player, but has little in his armoury that will worry Fabio Capello. Although they seem like no hopers, they have proven that on their day they are capable of beating some of the more established football teams. To qualify for the finals, they beat Russia both home and away showing that they are no mugs and that England should not be complacent going into this one. Odds of 8/1 (Paddy Power) are available on Slovenia causing another shock and beating England.
