The 2018 FIFA World Cup will start in just a few days, with all the teams and fans already enjoying Russia. This year's World Cup will probably be the most exciting in years as there are no clear favorites for the title and a lot of dark horses. The road to the final will be especially tough for England, who have been drawn into a tricky group that also features Panama, Belgium, and Tunisia.

Considering the last tournament and the managerial change, England isn't really being considered a top favorite. Granted, Gareth Southgate has instilled a great team spirit in the squad, but the lack of good results and the track record at major tournaments in recent times don't give fans much hope. Still, the World Cup is unpredictable and anything can happen when you have Harry Kane leading your attack. If you'd like to bet on England's chances in the World Cup, you can do that and play casino games here.

At the moment, England is tipped to at least get out of Group G, with many experts agreeing the team can make the later stages. Reports are suggesting that the squad is in a lively matter thanks to Southgate's team-leading spirit. Unlike previous tournaments, this squad is pretty young and led by the incredible Harry Kane, who has been made captain and believes that England's chances of winning the World Cup are great. Talk about self-confidence.

Even the gaffer said that the team has "no limits" and that they're trying to make the impossible possible. The squad definitely doesn’t lack confidence which can only be a good thing going into the World Cup. On the other hand, fans are not so sure of The Three Lions' chances – in a recent survey, only 4% of fans thought that England has chances of winning the tournament, with more chances being given to Peru!

The good thing about the squad is that the boss insists they have a thirst to improve and will approach every match seriously. If the players click just like Southgate thinks, England's chances of at least reaching the later stages are great. With the emergence of Rashford, Lingard, Alexander-Arnold, and Sterling this year and veterans such as Ashley Young and Gary Cahill, England have a great chance of getting out of the group and maybe going even further. Don't forget that the squad boasts Harry Kane up front who is one of the best strikers in the world at the moment, supported by the speed of Sterling on one side and the lucid movement of Rashford on the other. With that attack, England can surely beat anyone.
