As all domestic league football around Europe has ceased for the season, it is time for us to go and concentrate on the prospect of World Cup 2010. England travels to Kazakhstan in search to maintain their 100% record in the qualifiers under Coach Fabio Capello. Kazakhstan is more inclined to be one of the minnow of the group and this will be their first competitive home match against one of past winners of this competition. The host will try to make their guest uncomfortable as much as possible on the day.
This is one of the best start for England World Cup campaign. They have managed to maintain a 100% win rate in the group, giving them the driving seat to qualify for South Africa 2010. If there is an outright winner for this group, it is the players with 3 lions on their chest that will be running around the Central Stadium. A surprise call up to Paul Robinson and Gary Cahill was included in the squad earlier this week. Rio Ferdinand will not play a part in Kazakhstan as he is nursing an injury. England could start with Peter Crouch upfront with Beckham in contentions to be field in the starting lineup.
There is no doubt that Kazakhstan is one of the most intimidating places to go. They will be welcoming the England squad on Saturday and will also prove to the world that they can also play football. Last time these two teams met in Wembley, they did produce some good counter attacking football and showed they have the ability to score. It was much of a delight for the first half where Kazakhstan went up front but they faltered in the second half and slumped to a 5-1 defeat. They do lack in the organization and structural discipline and that could be another problem that they might face if England is to mount pressure on them.
Not much of a contest here but given the fact that England might be a little bit complacent, then there is a chance of an upset here. With Fabio Capello on reign, he does have the tactical experience to brush Kazakhstan away with just his mind but it’s the football on the day that counts, so have a look at mybet as they are offering 1.17 for an away win.
