Ben Darvill: Back Harry Kane to score first & England to beat Bulgaria @ 2/1 Paddy Power

Well what a difference a few weeks and one game makes to a qualifying campaign. Gareth Southgate’s England came into their match against the Czech Republic with the wind in their sails and the prospect of securing a place at Euro 2020 with one more win over the Czech Republic, whom they had dispatched 5-0 mere months earlier. However, a sluggish performance from the start meant that England struggled to ever really get back into the game after Jakub Brabec’s ninth minute effort had cancelled out Harry Kane’s early penalty.

Despite this poor start, many would have still assumed England would take control at some point and make the most of the vast talent gap between the two sides count. However, the Czech Republic battled hard and actually had the better of the entire game, with chances falling to the side as England were unable to ever really get any momentum going in the match as their midfield failed to get any kind of foot-hold in the game. Mason Mount may have had a fairly good game, but Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson were given the runaround in the middle, which then saw Harry Maguire and Michael Keane lacking options with the ball at their feet, forcing them to go out wide immediately or to go long, with the latter the complete antithesis of Southgate’s England’s d blueprint.

The loss means that the Czech’s have moved level with England at the top of the group albeit after playing a game more than the Three Lions. Now, Southgate’s men will be looking to bounce back immediately in their game against rockbottom Bulgaria, who they beat 4-0 at Wembley back in September. However, the away side will be taking nothing for granted as, as previously mentioned, England hammered the Czech’s 5-0 at home before being beaten in the reverse on the road. While some will have thought Southgate would choose to pick a less-experienced team for this one, that came under the premise that they had already secured their place at Euro 2020. Instead, we think that England will field a very strong side as they desperately try to bounce back immediately following that awful loss on Friday. Bulgaria's last game saw them draw 0-0 with Montenegro on the road and they will be licking their lips following England’s insipid performance on Friday.

Despite this, we are backing the Three Lions to get all three points against an opponent that have been very far off the pace in the group. Harry Kane netted in the opener on Friday from the spot while he managed the same against Bulgaria in the reverse whilst also netting a hat-trick in a very impressive performance. If Southgate is to pick his best team then Kane will surely play, with the captain England’s talisman and a huge reason why they have become such a force in world football.
