ENG Vs BUL Dream11 Team Prediction: England look to move one step closer to qualifying for Euro 2020 when they take on a crumbling Bulgaria.
Having hardly been involved in the UEFA Euro 2002 Qualifying Round due to their involvement in the UEFA Nation’s League, England are back in the tournamnet today. The Group A leaders will be looking to further consolidate their stronghold over the group when they lock heads against a struggling Bulgaria side, one which has been delegated to no more than whipping boys in the group.
Sitting in fourth place with just the two points, garnered from two draws, Bulgaria’s winless spree looks set to continue today. The side are taking on a staunch English side in an away encounter, ingredients which point at yet another defeat for the side as we reach the halfway mark in the qualification process today.
For England, today’s clash comes bearing with it massive ramifications. Although the side have improved their results over the course of the least year, reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup and UEFA Nation’s League, the side are yet to win matches with conviction, being quashed by sides superior to them with consummate ease.
And Bulgaria is just the unit England will be looking forward to facing after their Nation’s League exit, side they’ll be looking to put a comprehensive showing against. This is a side which has faced a massive overhaul since that defeat with a slew of names dropping out due to injuries while others have been kept out owing to their languishing form, seeing this being an exciting but relatively young and inexperienced English setup.
England love flourishing against such kind of teams, thriving infront of the goal and today’s encounter will scour in the similar fashion for them. Playing in front of a boisterous support, England will go onto not just defeat Bulgaria but unravel them massively, leaving the visitors in disarray with a clinical performance.
England win this match with ease and consolidate their spot at the top of the group.

Dream 11 Picks
Although Bulgaria are all set to be hammered today, conceding and leaking goals, we have still decided to go in with their shot stopper. There was a burning need to rope in four players from their side as per the guidelines of Dream 11, seeing us bring in Plamen Iliev, someone who could end up delivering a good haul of save points owing to the barrage he’s going to encounter today.
The likelihood of England keeping a cleansheet today is extremely high. The side are up against a unit who’ll be left devoid of the ball for a majority of the match with the hosts dominating proceedings and controlling the flow of this encounter, leaving their backline with little to do.
This narrative will also see their defenders canter their way up the park and find themselves heavily involved with a chance of delivering either a goal or assist, seeing us opt for CB Harry Maguire and RB Trent Alexander-Arnold from the side. From Bulgaria we are bringing in Vasil Bozhikov for this match.
With England all set to plunder Bulgaria’s goal and pile on the goals today, it was only fair for us to bring in their key attacking players. Jaden Sancho, James Maddison and Mason Mount are all picked up by us owing to this narrative. While the likelihood of Maddison and Mason Mount starting this one is bleak, they are set to come on at some point to be handed over their debuts and can easily end up scoring in the limited minutes they get.
The lone picks from Bulgaria sees us get in Galin Ivanov.
In striker Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, we have an indispensible duo from England. These are players who can be left out at any costs, involved in everything the side craft out in their attacking sojourns and it was only fair of us for getting in the duo.
With England always vulnerable to conceding a goal, we are also roping in Bulgaria’s striker, Kiril Despodov for this clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have stuck with Harry Kane as our side’s captain for today while Sterling is the vice-captain.
