ENG vs ROM Dream11: England defeated Austria by a goal to nil in midweek in a performance that was a strong first 30 minutes but tailed off throughout as it often does with warm-up friendlies. This match is likely to see a very different starting eleven with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United players returning from injury. They come up against a Romania team that lost against Georgia in a friendly to continue some indifferent form and they will not be preparing for this summer’s tournament. A comfortable England win is likely given the fact it’ll likely be a stronger side.

There are a lot of unknowns surrounding Southgate’s team selection for this match, but the Three Lions should have too much for Romania regardless of the XI that is sent onto the field in Middlesbrough. Bellingham could be handed another chance to take his claim for a midfield spot, while there is seemingly a position up for grabs in the middle of the defence due to Maguire’s ankle issue. In our ENG vs ROM Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-1 win for the English in this match.
