England v Estonia Preview, Euro 2016 Qualification, Friday 9th October 2015.

Nothing left to play for on Friday with England having qualified top of the group nine points clear and still with two games left to play. I can imagine England coach Roy Hodgson plans to play a few fringe players as he looks to continue building his squad of young players. Even without a few star players like captain Wayne Rooney, we should still see England ease to victory on Friday night against forth placed Estonia. This will be the last competitive game played at Wembley this year, although they will play there in November against Spain in pre-competition friendly. England’s last game of the group will be against Lithuania next Monday who themselves need to win both of their remaining two games to stand any chance of qualifying.

Estonia have pretty much no chance of qualifying now, as a win against England at Wembley and a home match against second placed Switzerland does see them keeping little hope.  If however they did manage to win their last two games it could see them finish in 2nd or 3rd depending on other group results, but lets be honest they are as good as dead in the water. They can finish the qualifiers with their heads held high with the nation winning three of their fixtures as well as drawing the once against San Marino away from home, which will no doubt be their biggest disappointment with the game ending goalless. If they had won away to San Marino then they would be on the same points as Slovenia who are currently sitting in third, which does give them another opportunity to qualify through the play-offs.

England Team News:

The biggest injury news is that England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been ruled out having failed to recover in time from an ankle injury he picked up in the 3 – 0 loss to Arsenal last weekend, leaving Chelsea defender Gary Cahill to lead England out as captain. Michael Carrick was unable to train today as well as Liverpool striker Danny Ings who also sat out with an ankle problem. Harry Kane will likely start up front, although Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is also on Hodgson’s radar. Jonjo Shelvey and John Stones also miss out due to injuries.

Estonia Team News:

I cannot find anything anywhere regarding team news for the Estonia squad so will comment mainly on who are the nations main danger men during this qualifying round. The nation have only scored four goals during qualification with Sergei Zenjov having scored twice and assisting in one other. The other two goals were scored via Ats Purje and fellow midfielder Konstantin Vassiljev.

England v Estonia Head to Head Statistics:

We only have three games played out between the two nations where England have won all three. In Estonia last year we did see England struggle to grab the win convincingly having only won the game 1 – 0. Unlike seven years before that where they won 3 – 0 both home and away during the EURO 2008 Qualifiers. We should very well see at least three goals scored at Wembley, with home team England responsible for all.

13/10/07 ECQ England vs Estonia  3 : 0

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the three games these two nations have played we have seen a total of seven goals scored in total, which is going to give us a goals per game average of 2.3 per game. We are however at Wembley on Friday and should see a more likely result of around 3 – 0 come the end of the night. So the below option I feel could be a good bet if interested.

England are by far the better team in form here and are no doubt on track to complete all ten qualifying games with a 100% win record. Even though we can see three wins recorded above they were against the likes of Finland, Lithuania and San Marino. England are of course the solid favourites to win Friday night.

England v Estonia Match Betting Odds Market

England I thought would have a much worse odds on to win score coming into this game, but maybe that’s because they will no doubt play some fringe players come Friday night. Best odds on England to win seen here @ 1/7 with Coral – Bet £5 & Get £20 Free when Registering a New Account.

The Draw is no doubt the best Estonia could hope for Friday night, which would be seen as a terrible result by home side England. We haven’t seen a draw between the two teams in the three games they have played, but could this be the first? I highly doubt it and the best odds of it happening can be seen here @ 8/1 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bets when You Register a New Account

Estonia come into this game with some rather respectable odds, and I can only put it down to the nations recent results and the fact England may not be that up for it with them already qualifying.

England v Estonia Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

International break once again this week where we feature England’s last two games of the qualifying group, of which I may add they have easily won with nine points clear and two games remaining. The game can be views live on ITV1 High Definition and we have been told it will be without club and national captain Wayne Rooney who failed to recovered from an ankle injury he picked up in the loss against Arsenal last weekend. Estonia have won three games in their last five fixtures, although only two of these were EURO qualifying games against Lithuania and San Marino. Their last win came way back at the start of qualifying which was against third placed Slovenia.

England have dominated this group with eight wins out of eight, and are on course to complete the qualifying stage with ten wins out of ten with Estonia and Lithuania left to play. England have not lost a game since the Brazil World Cup in the summer of 2014, where Uruguay added to the nations misery with a brace from controversial striker Luis Suarez, even though England captain Wayne Rooney scored his first World Cup goal. Since that day the club have won ten and drawn three games even though we have played against the likes of Italy and Scotland in friendlies matches.

My predictions for Fridays game will see England win the game with ease, and no dobt I do see the game ending with a correct score of 3 – 0. A result seen twice in the past eight years ago in the EURO 2008 Qualifiers. My next prediction will be for Harry Kane to score a minimum of two goals on the night, even though you could also select the same for Theo Walcott if Roy Hodgson starts him instead. Either of the two strikers are both seen as big hopefuls to add to their national goal scoring tally.
