England will attempt to rebound from a horrendous showing in their last World Cup in Brazil where they failed to make it past group stage as they get ready to make their debut against Tunisia in Group G action. The two nations are scheduled to meet for the third time in their history with the showdown set to be broadcasted on the FOX Sports 1 network Monday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. ET and live from Volgograd Arena in Volgograd, Russia.

Unbeaten in their last ten fixtures and winning seven of those tilts, the Three Lions will be confident of picking up all three points in their curtain raider on Monday. Tunisia aren’t a team to be walk over though as they showed just that on June 9 as they almost held Spain to a goalless draw. The Eagles of Carthage lost 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Lago Aspas in the 84’ minute of the game. This followed on from draws against Turkey and Portugal.

In fact, the loss to La Roja was their first in over a year with them winning five contests and drawing four of their nine matches in between. You also have to consider that they went unbeaten in their World Cup qualifying campaign which indicates that England will have their hands full. Manager Gareth Southgate is well aware of this though and has focused on keeping everything tight at the back during their warm-up friendlies.

England beat Nigeria 2-1 and Costa Rica 2-0 this month which is promising but those two victories were expected given the quality of the two sides. Their last defeat came exactly a year ago in a friendly with France which was played in Paris. They have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight fixtures and that includes matches against powerhouses such as Brazil, Germany and Italy. Meanwhile, Tunisia have only conceded 5 goals in their last 6 games.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the England listed as -240 ML Favorites versus the Tunisia, at +750 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +340.

The Bottom Line:
A former defender, Southgate has built his squad starting with an impeccable defense. The Three Lions have enough on offense with Captain Harry Kane leading the way and that should ensure them to kick off the tournament with a win. The Pick: England 3 Tunisia 1.
