International Friendlies **Stat Attack** (7th-10th June 2018)

We return with more International Friendlies this week as the sides involved in the up-coming World Cup in Russia continue to prepare for the tournament.

Plenty of games to take in but we thought we’d pick out the best of the fixtures and give you the main head-to-head stats to help with your betting and trading angles.

England will be full of confidence after their 2-1 win over Nigeria last weekend and next up for the Three Lions is Costa Rica, who are also heading to Russia for the World Cup this summer – this one is being played at Leed’s Elland Road stadium.

We also get a chance to see big World Cup fancies Germany and Brazil in action as Germany take on Mexico, while Brazil face-off with Austria.

We’ve got the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats.
