Fifa World Cup Group G | England vs Tunisia – Key Players to Watch out for and Here is how the teams Will line up

England vs tunisia, england vs tunisia line ups, England

It’s been a long two years since England’s humiliation in France at Euro 2016, but the time has come for them to try and lay those demons to rest in the World Cup. Their opening match takes place in Volgograd, and they will be expected to get off to a winning start for the England vs Tunisia clash.

Tunisia isn’t a team to be walked over though. They showed that in their final warm-up game on Saturday as they almost held Spain to a goalless draw, only for the Spaniards to be rescued by a late Iago Aspas goal.

Head to Head

The Three Lions haven’t faced Tunisia in 20 years when they defeated them in the group stages of the France 1998 World Cup, with goals from Alan Shearer and Paul Scholes. Only another meeting was in a June 1990 friendly which ended 1-1.


Southgate is buoyed by a young and fresh side that features a very Tottenham and Manchester City-oriented teams, such as Kyle Walker, Dele Alli, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph.

England typically does well in the qualification stages of the World Cup – they were unbeaten in the campaign leading up to Russia – but have stumbled during the actual tournament. Gareth Southgate’s side will be hoping to make a winning start in Volgograd against the highest-ranked African team in the competition to build some momentum ahead of their remaining fixtures against Panama and Belgium.

The key player – Harry Kane

A genuinely world-class goal scorer and one of the few players in this England squad you could consider ‘world class’. Harry Kane will captain this team and will need to be at his absolute best if the Three Lions are to do anything in this tournament. The first thing to do will be to take him off corners.

Young Player to look out – Eric Dier

Not one of the biggest names in the squad, but Eric Dier is definitely one of the most trusted. The Tottenham man has played in 13 of Gareth Southgate’s 16 matches as England manager and will be a vital cog in Russia.

Predicted Line-Up



Tunisia will be making their fifth appearance at the World Cup finals but have never made it out of the group stage, and are underdogs in a group that favour the likes of England and Belgium. As coach Nabil Maloul admitted, Tunisia going to the World Cup without Msakni is like Argentina entering the competition without Lionel Messi.

Key Player – Wahbi Khazri

After the making the wise decision to leave Sunderland for Rennes on loan, Khazri enjoyed an impressive 2017/18 campaign in Ligue 1, scoring 11 goals in 24 appearances. The 27-year-old midfielder has now been capped 37 times for his country, and will be one of the first names on Coach Nabil Maâloul’s team-sheet in Russia ahead of the England vs Tunisia fixture.

Young player to look out- Ellyes Skhiri

Skhiri has so far been capped just four times at senior international level but inexperience wasn’t enough to keep the 23-year-old out of Tunisia’s plans for the World Cup.

The midfielder plays for Montpellier and is a physical player with a penchant for breaking up opposition attacks and recycling possession.

He started almost every game at club level last season and there’s an expectation a bigger club could come sniffing around in the near future. A good World Cup certainly won’t do him any harm and it all starts from England vs Tunisia
