The third and final match for both of these sides sees England taking on Slovenia in a potentially crucial match with the last 16 on the horizon, Fabio Capello and England will be the hot favourites to take the win here. Slovenia surprised many with their qualification for the 2010 World Cup but they should be respected as they are a strong unit who will be difficult to break down. It will be up to England to take the game to their weaker opponents as they hope to claim the three points to move forward to the knock-out stages with the weight of a nation on their shoulders.
England qualified with ease for the 2010 World Cup and and with a strong squad to pick from are one of the favourites to lift the trophy at the end of the tournament. They have only won the trophy once in 1966 and are out to end the years of pain that their fans are so used to.
England v Slovenia Match Odds
England are the very strong favourites to take the win here and claim the three points against their European rivals. Fabio Capello's team should have too much for the Slovenians with the bookies giving Slovenia next to no time. The draw is not totally out of the question at this stage but it would need a poor performance from England while a Slovenian win is not worth looking at.
