England vs Norway (Prediction, 03.09.2014)

England are set to play against Norway in the first friendly match since the disaster that was the World Cup and Roy Hodgson has already squad problems. 888sport favors England to win against Norway, even though Michael Carrick and Andy Carroll were not called to the squad. Hodgson has four new names for this last friendly before the Euro 2016 qualifications.

Andros Townsend returns to the squad after missing the World Cup due to injury. Calum Chambers impressed at Arsenal and was also called up, even if reports say Arsene Wenger was not completely ok with this. Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole retired from the team, which put Wayne Rooney as the new captain, yet the absence of these experienced players will be felt. Add to that the fact that the supporters are not lining up for the matches and the FA is looking for ways to bring the fans’ trust back to Wembley.
Norway was held to a 0-0 draw by the UAE, and yet what everyone keeps talking about is the 15 year old sensation. Odegaard was called to the big team to help them get a great start to their qualifications hopes. Against UAE, Norway ended up chasing after them for the ball, but weren’t able to capitalize on any of their chances.

888sport gives 1.55 odds for an outright England win, 6.00 for a Norway one and 3.80 for a draw. England to lead at half-time is at 2.17, Norway at 5.50 and home team to win without conceding a goal at 2.43. An odd number of goals is at 1.93 but we’re going to bet 7 units on both teams to score at 2.05, one of the most popular betting markets at 888sport.
