England vs. Panama: 2018 World Cup – Match Preview

England can qualify for the last 16 of the World Cup with a victory over Panama on Sunday afternoon.

Harry Kane scored twice as they recorded a late victory over Tunisia on Monday.

Gareth Southgate’s men dominated the game, however needed an added time header from their captain to secure a deserved three points.

Panama’s first ever World Cup game ended in defeat, as they went down 3-0 against Belgium.

They managed to hold the Red Devils until half-time, however once Dries Mertens opened the scoring, there was only going to be one result.

Unsurprisingly the two nations have never met before.

Dele suffered a thigh issue against Tunisia and is likely to miss out on Sunday.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to come in, with the other change likely to see Marcus Rashford replace Raheem Sterling.
