England v Brazil: Prediction, Tips and Odds

England face a serious test of their credentials in Saturday's friendly clash with Brazil and the Three Lions' exciting forwards should be backed to showcase their talent at Wembley.

England are 10/3 favourites to win Euro 2024 and Gareth Southgate's men have the chance to test themselves against some top-class opponents in the March international window.

The Three Lions are 5/6 to beat Brazil at Wembley on Saturday and their preparation for June's European Championship finals will continue with another friendly fixture against Belgium on Tuesday.

England v Brazil betting tips and predictions

England to win & over 2.5 goals – 2/1

England signed off their successful Euro 2024 qualifying campaign in November with a 2-0 home win over Malta and a 1-1 draw away to North Macedonia.

Two of their three strikes in those games were opposition own goals but Gareth Southgate's side had already done the hard work in Group C by beating European champions Italy both home and away.

The Three Lions won 2-1 against the Azzurri in Naples in their first qualifier and a Harry Kane brace helped them to a 3-1 victory in October's return fixture.

Kane also scored twice in last June's 7-0 rout of North Macedonia, in which Arsenal's Bukayo Saka claimed his first international hat-trick, and England's attacking talent has propelled them to the head of the Euro 2024 market. 

As well as Kane and Saka, the squad for this month's friendlies includes Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham, Manchester City's Phil Foden and Aston Villa's Ollie Watkins, all of whom have had superb seasons at club level.

England's defensive depth is less convincing and Joe Gomez, Lewis Dunk, Ezri Konsa and Jarrad Branthwaite have won just 14 senior caps between them.

The hosts are on a 12-match winning streak in friendlies and they should extend that run against a struggling Brazil side. Six of England's last nine friendly victories featured over 2.5 goals and another entertaining win could be on the cards this weekend.

Goal after 73:59 – 5/6

Brazil suffered late heartbreak in their 2022 World Cup quarter-final against Croatia, conceding a 117th-minute equaliser before losing on penalties, and they have struggled to close out recent games too.

Their last outing was an acrimonious 1-0 defeat against rivals Argentina in Rio de Janeiro – the first time Brazil had ever lost a home game in World Cup qualifying.

That result made it three losses in a row for the five-time world champions, following away defeats to Uruguay and Colombia, and the five goals they conceded in those matches came in the 42nd, 77th, 75th, 79th and 63rd minutes.

Before the start of that losing streak, the Selecao had let in an 85th-minute equaliser at home to Venezuela and needed a 90th-minute Marquinhos goal to edge past Peru 1-0.

There is fierce competition for places in the England squad so any substitutes used by Southgate will be eager to make an impression.

The high-profile nature of Saturday's friendly means the game is unlikely to peter out so back a goal to be scored after 73:59, which has been a winning bet in 11 of Brazil's last 13 matches.

Phil Foden to score or assist a goal – 6/4

England have no shortage of in-form options in midfield and attack and Manchester United youngster Kobbie Mainoo was added to the squad after his excellent performance in the FA Cup quarter-final win over Liverpool.

A more established Mancunian star, Phil Foden, has been in electric form for Manchester City this season and he should relish the chance to face Brazil at Wembley.

Foden looks a tempting bet to score or assist a goal on Saturday. He scored twice, from nine attempts, in this month's 3-1 Premier League derby win over United and has contributed 11 goals and seven assists in 26 league starts in 2023/24.

His Champions League record is even more impressive with seven goal contributions in just 477 minutes of playing time and an average of four shots per game.

With Kane and Watkins likely to share centre-forward duties on Saturday, any chances created by the confident Foden should be snapped up and he also poses a goal threat himself.
