England Slovenia Odds: Form Guide
Things are pretty close here, although England has the edge having won their last four matches: Estonia (12th Oct), San Marino (9th Oct), Switzerland (8th Sept) and Norway (3rd Sept). Prior to that, England drew with Costa Rica on June 24th in the 2014 World Cup. In all of these five matches, England have not conceded a solitary goal.
Slovenia beat Lithuania 2-0 away on October 12th and Switzerland at home on October 9th, keeping clean sheets in both games. Their previous three games ended in three successive defeats to Estonia (8th Sept), Argentina and Uruguay (both in the recent World Cup).
England Slovenia Odds: Head to Head Record
England and Slovenia have played each other twice before with England winning both matches. The previous England Slovenia match at Wembley was a friendly back in September 2009. the result then was 2-1 to England with the goals coming from Frank Lampard and Jermain Defoe. At that time, Defoe was in sparkling form, and later that year scored a record 5 goals in Spurs’ 9-1 thrashing of Wigan Athletic – all of them in the second half.
The next England Slovenia game was at the 2010 World Cup (group stage) where Defoe again featured, netting the winner in the 23rd minute. Although Jermain can’t influence the England Slovenia odds this time, the huge home support expected will surely be a major factor.
Berahino Called Up
Roy Hodgson has rewarded the feats of the West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino with his first England cap. Currently the top (English) goal scorer in the Premier League, Berahino’s England record at under-21 level is Ronaldo-esque: 10 goals in 10 matches. Not to put too much expectation on the lad.
The speed of Berahino’s development has been nothing short of incredible. It’s hard to believe that just a couple of short years ago he was out on loan at Northampton Town, Brentford and Peterborough United. In the Premier League this year, he’s already netted seven goals so far.
