Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier is one of several England players to see his stock rise this summer due to their performances in the World Cup. They've scored two goals in every game [except against Denmark in the round of 16].

England to win and Under 2.5 goals is a 3/1 chance and might be the way to bet. They are in the better half of the draw and we have a proper team, full of quality, full of experience.
