Roy Hodgson is set to take charge of his first home game as England manager when Belgium travel to Wembley. Hodgson’s team got off to a winning start away in Norway last time out, but Belgium will offer a much tougher test in what will be England’s last warm up game before the European Championships start.

Mark Wilmots’ Belgium side has a Premier League look about it, as many as seven of the starting line-up could come from England’s top flight. This match has an added incentive for one of those seven players, Eden Hazard. Hazard has recently signed for Chelsea and will be eager to impress his future team mates and the English supporters inside the ground.

Belgium have lost only one of their last 16 matches, and although they have drawn three in a row, they are a very tricky proposition. They are a team full of confidence, no one more so than Captain Vincent Kompany. After leading Manchester City to their first league title in 44 years, Kompany also picked up Premiership players player of the season.

Accompanied by Thomas Vermaelen, Belgium have a mean defence supported by the fact that five of their last nine matches have contained less than 2.5 goals. However, England also bolster a dogged back four and their last four wins have all been by a single goal to nil.

With Wayne Rooney unlikely to start and Frank Lampard missing through injury, goals may be hard to come by. With both teams stronger in defence than attack, I would suggest punters back the draw at around 4.2 on BETDAQ.

RECOMMENDATION: (1-10 points)

Back the draw at around 4.2 on BETDAQ: 5 points

Friday Return: -7.00 points

JUNE RETURN TO DATE: -7.00 points
