Match Preview :

Tunisia vs England match is going to be held on 18-th June at Volgograd Arena (Volgograd)

This is first match of world cup 2018 because of that both team have to show us their best skills, combinations, tactics to start group stage successfully.

England was eliminated in the group stage of last World Cup without winning any game. They lost to Italy and Uruguay in the first two games and then drew against Costa Rica. It was their worst performance in the Football World Cup that England would like to forget it.

Tunisia played four editions of this competition before in 1978, 1988, 2002 and 2006 but never proceed further group stage. Missing last two editions means they lack the experience of finals pressure.

Two head to head games have been played so far between England and Tunisia. England has won one of them drawing the other one. The last meeting was held twenty years ago in 1998 when England registered a clean sheet victory of 2-0.

The Favorite Team is England, But Tunisia will try to take minimum one point or win the match.
