Our match prediction:
Despite winning all ten fixtures in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, England needed a win against high-profile opposition to restore the faith in the national team, and boy did they get one, coming from two goals behind to record a 3-2 triumph against Germany in Berlin. The Three Lions were thoroughly impressive in the second half, with Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy scoring amazing goals and Eric Dier notching the winner with his trademark header. Even though Roy Hodgson is expected to ring some changes to the starting line-up, England can be trusted to ride the wave of Germany victory and beat the out-of-sorts Netherlands. Oranje almost managed to defy the predictions and prevent France from winning in Amsterdam, but that would be an undeserved draw taking everything into account. The Netherlands were completely outplayed by Les Bleus, partly thanks to Danny Blind’s decision to play three at the back, and while they did show improvement in the second period, this team is simply not good enough to match in-form England.
Highligted Player (Robben):
Arjen Robben is a professional footballer who started his senior career at Groningen. In 2002 he joined PSV and after making 56 league appearances for the Dutch outfit, the pacey winger signed a deal with Chelsea in 2004. The Dutch ace helped the Blues win two Premier League trophies (2004/2005, 2005/2006) and he scored 15 goals in 67 league appearances for the capital club. Arjen Robben played for Real Madrid from 2007 to 2009 and he scored 11 goals in 50 appearances in La Liga. However, the club chiefs were not satisfied with his performances and they decided to sell him to Bayern Munich in 2009. Joining the Bundesliga giants was probably the best decision of his career as he has been winning titles with the German outfit year by year. Robben clinched his fifth Bundesliga trophy with Bayern Munich in the 2015/2016 season and in 2013 he scored the winning goal for the Bavarians in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. The Bayern Munich star was born in Bedum, Netherlands on 23 January, 1984.
