European U21 Championships: Romania to frustrate young Lions[/b]
England look very under-priced to beat an impressive Romania side while the best soccer tips should flow when France play Croatia later on in the day, says Jamie Pacheco.

Confident Romania can send England packing[/b]
It would be easy for England to put their defeat to France down lớn bad luck.
In any game where you're 1-0 up in the 89th minute, you can consider yourself pretty unfortunate to go on and lose it 2-1, especially when the 'winner' was an own goal in the 95th minute.
But the scoreline alone doesn't tell even half the story. France missed two penalties long before the equaliser, played the last half hour with an extra man after Hamza Choudhury was sent off in what resulted in the soccer daily tips and in addition lớn having 54% possession, had 18 shots to England's five.
In other words, England did pretty well lớn keep the score at 1-0 for as long as they did and on another day could have lost that 4-1.
They're now without Choudhury of course and though there are other options in the squad, he'll be a big miss. It will also be a big concern for Aidy Boothroyd that Aaron-Wan Bissaka, the impressive right-back who Manchester United are desperate lớn buy from Crystal Palace, had such an awful game. The own goal could happen lớn anyone of course but it was his general performance well before that which will have been so disappointing. Boothroyd would have expected big things from him.
In attack, the obvious move in this must-win match is to give Tammy Abraham a game instead of Dominic Solanke. The latter's record at U21 level is admittedly very good but he hardly played all season while Abraham had an outstanding year at Villa.
England have to be taken on at such a short price of 1.55. Last time out they were erratic in defence, pretty toothless in attack and indisciplined lớn boot, with two players booked and one sent off.
I pointed out that Romania were being seriously under-estimated ahead of their clash with Croatia on Tuesday and so it proved. They won that 4-1.
They had a strong qualifying campaign and confidence will be sky high after that win. The pressure is very much on England rather than them but Romania also know that they can't really sit back and play for 0-0. Romania look very strong and their best bet might be to finish as the best runners-up to the French.
That's all lớn worry about another day. The odds here suggest a big gulf in quality between the sides. Well, there's a gulf in terms of big names, yes, but quality? I'm not so sure. Take on England.
