England vs Australia Betting Tip and Predictions. In the friendly match which will take place at Stadium of Light in Sunderland, England host Australia. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between England vs Australia.
Australia will not play in the major European football championship, so this match could be useful for them in order to better prepare for the next phase of Asian qualifications for the World Cup 2018 in Russia. They are the best football national team in Asia and without any doubt Australia will reach the World Cup. Visitors are playing very similar football as home side, so this will be the real test for them to see where they belong. After this game they will play against Greece two friendly matches, so their coach could test some players. Some players from far east will not be included in these friendly games, so for example Cahill and Giannou will miss these preparation games.
The last match between England vs Australia was played at Upton Park in 2003., when Socceroos shocked home side beating them 1-3.
