England 7-1 for Nations League glory

England beat USA 3-0 in an international friendly win at Wembley and the good news continued for Gareth Southgate with Croatia beating Spain in Zagreb to keep the Three Lions' Nations League hopes alive.

Jesse Lingard curled in the opener and Trent Alexander-Arnold quickly doubled England's advantage.

Wayne Rooney was introduced as a second-half substitute in his farewell appearance to earn his 120th cap but it was Bournemouth's Callum Wilson who completed the scoring on his England debut.

Croatia's 3-2 win over Spain has set up a fascinating final-day shootout to qualify for the Nations League finals next summer when the World Cup finalists head to Wembley on Sunday to meet in a rematch of their semi-final against England in Russia.

A win for either team would see them top the group. Spain are only able to qualify if the game is a draw and bet365 rate England 7-1 to be crowned Nations League champions.

Aston Villa v Derby

Key stats
  • Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his last seven starts for Aston Villa.
Expert verdict
Aston Villa have lost just two of their last 15 matches and valid excuses can be made for both defeats. Dean Smith made wholesale changes with the playoffs in mind for their 2-1 loss to champions Norwich on the final day, while they lost the second leg of semi-final at West Brom despite having 73 per cent possession and winning the shot count 24 to ten. They are full of confidence and should be more determined than ever after last season’s playoff final heartbreak.
