England will hope to carry their fine qualifying form into their opening Group B encounter against Russia at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille on 11 June. The Three Lions qualified for Euro 2016 with a 100% record and, in a bold move, have named a youthful squad featuring five strikers.

Roy Hodgson's side warmed up with narrow victories over Turkey, Australia and Portugal and are backed at 20/21 by Betfair to open their tournament with a win.

In contrast, Russia failed to win any of their warm-up fixtures, with defeats to France and the Czech Republic followed by a 1-1 draw with Serbia. The 2018 World Cup hosts will look to give a good account of themselves and improve on their disappointing group-stage exit at the last World Cup in Brazil.

Leonid Slutsky's side are priced at 4/1 to beat England in Marseille.

England's last meeting with Russia was a European Championship qualifier in Moscow in 2007, which ended in a 2-1 win for the hosts. A repeat of the same score line is placed at 17/1.

Harry Kane is 5/1 to score the first goal of the match, with Daniel Sturridge at 11/2 and captain Wayne Rooney at 6/1.
