Rich array of attacking options against ageing defence

When you put pacy Three Lions players such as Dele Alli, Ross Barkley, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy up against an over-the-hill Russian rearguard, there will surely be only one result. England have to score.

Roy Hodgson has sided with youth for Euro 2016, while opposite number Leonid Slutsky is largely relying on the spine that Russia used way back at Euro 2008.

Sergei Ignashevich is 36, and fellow defenders the Berezutski brothers, who have all served their national coach loyally at CSKA Moscow for many years, are 33 going on 34. That’s the same age as Russian captain Roman Shirokov, who is joined in midfield by fellow veteran Dimitri Torbinski when fit.

The Three Lions are going to create chances aplenty and run rings around these tired legs, and Hodgson has lethal finishers in Premier League Golden Boot winner Kane and runner-up Vardy to call upon.

If England cannot find the target against Russia, then you will be compensated with Coral committed to giving you a €/£5 free bet that can be used across our digital platforms.
