Competition: International friendly
Market: Norway win
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet365
On Wednesday, England’s group mates Panama will travel to Ullevaal Stadion to face off against Norway.
For Lars Lagerbäck Norway side, although The Reds couldn’t make any real impact in the World Cup qualifiers and slumped to a fourth-place finish in Group C, the hosts on Wednesday have bounced back with some eye-catching results. Coming off the back of a 3-2 win away to World Cup finalists Iceland, Norway are now on a three-match winning run and have also collected the scalps of both Albania and Australia, two teams who will also be heading to Russia this summer. It will also be their home form that should give them the edge on Wednesday, Norway are now unbeaten in their last seven home matches and have won their last three on the bounce.
As for Hernán Darío Gómez’s Panama side, although The Canal Men only managed to pick up three wins in qualifying, the visitors luckily secured the third and final World Cup spot courtesy of their superior goal difference. Placed in a group with England, Belgium and Tunisia, if Panama want to cause an upset this summer they must improve on their recent form. Coming off the back of a 0-0 draw with Northern Ireland, Gomez’s side have now picked up just one win in their last six.
