PREVIEW: England v Norway

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]nternational football tonight with questionable England playing even more questionable Norway in an even more questionable match.

It’s definitely a match for Johnny Nash…

There are more questions than answers
Pictures in my mind that will not show
There are more questions than answers
And the more I find out the less I know
Yeah, the more I find out the less I know

I personally hate these internationals (there you are, no sitting on the fence here). It’s not so much the matches themselves but the fact that we all get caught up with Premier League enthusiasm and it’s abruptly put on hold.

Finding a bet is tough. England’s World Cup campaign was horrific – even the most pessimistic pundit couldn’t have predicted they would leave Brazil without a win to their name and their side at Wembley tonight will be even weaker by the absence of Theo Walcott and Ross Barkley.

It’s hardly any surprise that fans have started voting with their pockets or are simply being lethargic.

The game is expected to be watched by the lowest crowd for an international fixture at the new Wembley, with an expected gate of between 35,000 and 40,000.

It’s a new look, young England side tonight with the emphasis on young with five players aged 22 or under.

Roy Hodgson’s line-up is: Joe Hart, John Stones, Phil Jones, Gary Cahill, Leighton Baines, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge and captain Wayne Rooney.

England’s Euro 2016 qualifying campaign begins proper on Monday against Switzerland.

As for tonight, don’t expect much and don’t expect many goals. There’s only been one solitary goal the last three times these teams have met so under 2.5 at around 10/11 with Star Sports should be fairly safe.

RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)

BACK UNDER 2.5 GOALS for 10 points at around 10/11 with Star Sports
