England host the Netherlands on Tuesday night at Wembley in a prestigious international friendly which will include a tribute to Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, who passed away last week.
England v Netherlands
Live on ITV / ITV HD
England head into this clash on a good run of form in international matches of late, having suffered just one defeat in their last 18 games, which was against reigning European champions.
Roy Hodgson’s side will head into this clash on the back of a 3-2 win against reigning world champions Germany in Berlin. The win was even more impressive considering that the Three Lions had to comeback from two goals down to claim the win. England can be backed for the win in this clash at odds of 3/ 4 with Paddy Power
Harry Kane scored in the win over Germany and has been in outstanding form this season. The Tottenham striker is odds of 4/1 with Sky Bet to open the scoring in this clash.
The Netherlands are currently going through a transitional period after failing to qualify for Euro 2016. On Friday the Netherlands suffered a 3-2 home defeat against France in Amsterdam. The game was overshadowed by the passing of Dutch legend Cruyff on Thursday.
Danny Blind has called-up a very young squad, which was made even younger by the absence of experienced attacking midfielder Wesley Sneijder, who picked-up an injury against France.
Blind’s selection policy was probably influenced by the fact that his side had won just two of their last six international games. The Oranje can be backed at odds of 9/2 at William Hill to record a victory.
The draw may be a tempting bet, if you feel these two teams cannot be separated. The draw is available at odds of 14/5 with BetVictor.
England will be full of confidence following that win in Germany and the Netherlands are currently experimenting with young players, so I fancy an England win in this clash at odds of 3/4 with BetVictor.
