England v Moldova – Betting Preview
England will be without the injured Wayne Rooney over the international break, as the Three Lions bid to secure qualification for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
International Football Predictions
England (1.062) v Moldova (51.00); Draw (15.00)
England will be looking to take back control of Group H on Friday, with Moldova the visitors to Wembley.
The Three Lions go into Friday’s match just two points behind Montenegro with a game in hand and a win at home to the European minnows would propel Roy Hodgson’s side to the summit of their World Cup qualification group.
England will be without injured trio Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones and Glen Johnson, so Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge may get the chance to lead the line after impressing for the Reds early on in the season.
The pace of Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Daniel Sturridge could cause Moldova problems, but the visitors likely defensive shape would seem to leave few opportunities for to use the pace in-behind.
Opponents Moldova have picked up just five points during their World Cup qualification campaign so far, but goals against Poland and the Ukraine suggest Ion Caras’ attack are not entirely without some merit.
England defeated Moldova 5-0 at Wembley last year and the Three Lions should record another comfortable win ahead of a crucial visit to Kiev on Tuesday.
Over 1.5 goals in the first half @2.00
Daniel Sturridge to score anytime @1.61
England -2.5 Asian handicap @1.66
