Tunisia vs England preview: Three Lions aiming to end World Cup winless streak

June 17, 2018 By Ali M.
Here is a comprehensive compilation of TV schedules and listings for England's World Cup opening match against Tunisia.

The narrative facing England ahead of their opening World Cup match is the same as always: the nation will travel but will disappoint their nation on the international stage once more. Gareth Southgate is the man in charge and he is aiming for a positive campaign with his youthful squad.

Experience is not the underlining theme for the Three Lions in 2018. In fact, Gary Cahill, Phil Jones, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, and Danny Welbeck are the only players to have traveled to Brazil for the 2014 edition.

However, the talent is undeniable. The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Marcus Rashford are exciting prospects all hoping to make a mark when they kick-start their campaign against Tunisia.

England's toughest competition will come from Belgium, as these two European sides will be keen on finishing in first place. However, their North African rival is not one to be underestimated.

Tunisia has played some challenging friendlies in the build-up to the 2018 World Cup and has impressed. First, they took on Euro 2016 champion Portugal and recorded a draw. Then, they locked horns with Spain and put in an impressive display to earn a similar outcome.

Team news

Wahbi Khazri is one who could worry Gareth Southgate's defense, but the availability of Ali Maaloul could make it difficult for the Carthage Eagles to name a starting eleven. Syam Ben Youssef should be the center-back given the task of keeping Kane quiet all game.

Fabian Delph is unlikely to feature after being permitted to return to England for the birth of his child. Regardless, Southgate will still have loads of talent to choose from.

Match facts

  • Only five of England's 23 players at the 2018 World Cup were present in the 2014 edition.
  • The Three Lions haven't tasted victory in this tournament in any of their last four games.
  • The European side's last World Cup win came almost eight years ago courtesy of a slim 1-0 triumph over Slovenia in 2010. 
  • This clash with England will be Tunisia's first World Cup game since 2006.
  • These two sides have locked horns before in their World Cup opening tie, having faced off in their first game of the 1998 edition.
  • That Group G clash 20 years ago ended in a 2-0 win for the Three Lions, with Alan Shearer and Paul Scholes scoring. Gareth Southgate also made his World Cup debut as a player in that game.
