As the go-to goalscorer in Gareth Southgate's team, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Tottenham striker to fire past the Carthage Eagles in Volgograd

Top scorer in England’s qualification campaign with five goals in six matches en route to Russia, the pressure is on Harry Kane to perform in the opening World Cup clash against Tunisia on Monday.

With no other member of the squad having scored more than twice in Gareth Southgate’s 18 matches in command, it is no surprise that the Tottenham Hotspur striker is dabblebet’s clear 5/2 (3.50) favourite to open the scoring at the Volgograd Arena.

Considering he has hit the net eight times in his previous seven international appearances, Kane actually offers strong value at 4/5 (1.80) with dabblebet to strike anytime.

The Three Lions certainly look set to struggle should their captain fail to fire, with Jamie Vardy 19/20 (1.95) and Marcus Rashford 5/4 (2.25) having contributed fewer international goals put together than he has in total.

Indeed, Raheem Sterling is priced at a relatively narrow 11/8 (2.38) despite striking just twice in 38 matches for his country, while Dele Alli 13/8 (2.63) has also struggled to translate his prolific club form to the international stage.

At the other end of the pitch, the Carthage Eagles will be trying to rebuild their attack without the injured star man Youssef Msakni, who has more international goals to his name than any of the travelling party to Russia.

Despite scoring just five times in 39 matches for Nabil Maaloul’s outfit, Fakhreddine Ben Youssef is his team’s 12/1 (13.00) favourite to break the deadlock – or 4/1 (5.00) anytime.

On target in two of the last three World Cup warm-up matches, Anice Badri looks like the best value at 9/2 (5.50) to step into the limelight with another gol here.

Meanwhile, Saif-Eddine Khaoui is priced at 5/1 (6.00) despite not scoring a senior goal in five caps, while Saber Khalifa on offer at 9/2 (5.50) even though he has only fired twice  in his last 22 matches for Tunisia.
