England v Panama betting tips: Sporting Life select the best RequestABets for the game

England will be hoping to make it six points from a possible six on Sunday as they face minnows Panama in Nizhny Novgorod.

Harry Kane's brace helped England to victory over Tunisia, and Gareth Southgate's men could wrap up a place in the round of 16 here.

The Sporting Life team have come up with their Sky Bet RequestABets for the game, and you can back them by clicking this link.

Tom Carnduff

England to win, 20+ Panama booking points, Jesse Lingard 1+ shots on target and Marcus Rashford to score from outside the area - 22/1

Panama may have frustrated Belgium for half of their opening encounter in Sochi, but England should be looking at this one as a game in which it's a fairly comfortable victory.

Jesse Lingard had more than enough opportunities for a goal against Tunisia and got four shots away, whilst Panama picked up five yellow cards against Belgium which shows that their discipline isn't the best.

Gareth Southgate is expected to make changes which should see Marcus Rashford start. The Manchester United man scored from outside the box against Costa Rica at Elland Road and has shown on plenty of occasions last season that he isn't afraid to have a go from distance.

Ben Linfoot

0-0 HT score, England to win to nil, Kane to score anytime - 15/2

England impressed in significant patches of play against Tunisia and got the job done despite adversity, traits that should see them through to at least the last 16.

Panama look one of the weakest teams in the competition, but they did hold a talented Belgium outfit until the second period in their first game and keeping things tight for as long as possible will once again be their one and only plan.

England might have to be patient, but they can break through in the second half thanks to their talisman and skipper Harry Kane, while a clean sheet looks a likely scenario as long as that dastardly VAR behaves itself.

Richard Mann

England HT/FT, Panama over 40 booking points and 10+ corners in the match - 10/1

England were quickly out of the traps in their 2-1 defeat of Tunisia, dominating the early proceedings and creating a host of chances.

With a similar approach expected against a weak Panama side, England should be in-front by half time while their impressive energy levels and frightening bench strength should again ensure they finish the game strongly.

Panama weren’t shy of a tackle in their opener against Belgium and with England’s pace and guile sure to stretch them to the limit, 10+ corners in the match and 3.5+ Panama bookings could be the way to go.

George Pitts

Harry Kane to score anytime, over 2.5 goals, 40+ match booking points, 8+ match corners - 11/2

Panama looked pretty woeful against Belgium in their Group G opener, allowing Romelu Lukaku to get off the mark with a brace and Sunday’s match presents Harry Kane with a great opportunity to add to his tally.

England created plenty of chances v Tunisia and should tuck a few away with a goal scored in each half and plenty of corners to boot.
