Grabbing all three points from their first group game against Tunisia, England now keen on securing their place in the knock out phase by winning their second game this Sunday.
Three Lions are gearing themselves up for another potentially tricky encounter against Panma, which could provide similar test like what Gareth Southgate’s side encounter on their previous match.
Having to battle hard and wait until the last minute before securing victory against Tunisia, Southgate will be aiming for his players to improve their finishing so they can take home maximum points in a more confident fashion.
Although there’s an air of confidence brewing on England’s camp following their opening game victory, but they will not be underestimating their opponent as that kind of mindset can always cause problems for any teams.
Panama themselves coming into the game following a 3-0 beating from Belgium, so they certainly acknowledge the difficulty they will be facing this Sunday.
Nevertheless, the Concacaf outfit are not prepare to just stand back and done nothing as they will be giving their best against Three Lions.
Los Canaleros’ head coach, Hernan Dario Gomez will be hoping that his side can put on a much more discipline display at the back and also create more problems going forward.
Probable starting line up:
England: Jordan Pickford(g); Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire; Kieran Trippier, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young; Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane.
Panama: Jaime Penedo(g); Roman Torres, Fidel Escobar, Michael Murillo, Eric Davis; Gabriel Gomez, Anibal Godoy, Armando Cooper, Edgar Barcenas, Jose Luis Rodriguez; Blas Perez
