John Peacock will be looking for his side to get back to winning ways in the U17 World Cup this weekend, but the temptation to sit back for a draw could prove too much for his team.
With a point apiece being enough to see both sides safely into the second round, the odds of 21/10 from bwin could tempt a number of those looking to make football bets over the weekend.
England come into the game on the back of a shock draw with Canada. A freak goal from substitute goalkeeper Quillan Roberts in the 87th minute denying England a second successive win.
However, after just edging a 1-0 win over Rwanda in their second game, group leaders Uruguay find themselves evenly priced with the young Lions to win this encounter.
Both sides are a 31/20 bet for the win, while the draw is priced at 21/10.
With little to differentiate between the sides, some football betting enthusiasts could be attracted to the handicap betting market.
Giving the South Americans a 1-0 lead going into the tie sees Fabian Coito’s boys move to odds of 9/20, with the draw then priced at 333/100 and an away win available at 17/4.
Doing the opposite and placing England at 1-0 from the off has the reverse effect, with the Three Lions then priced at 9/20, the draw at 333/100 and the Uruguay win at 17/4.
If England are to do what their U21 counterparts could not and qualify from the group, holding out for the draw may not be advisable.
Should this backfire and they lose, an expected win for Canada over Rwanda would see them crash out of the cup in the first round.
As such, Peacock is likely to look to Raheem Sterling to inspire those around him. The playmaker came into the tournament with an unusually high profile having been snapped up in a £600,000 deal that saw him swap QPR for Liverpool.
However, the attack-minded midfield ace has scored just one goal and will look to improve that tally if England are to secure the win that would remove any element of doubt.
In order to do that, Sterling will have to do what no one has managed in the competition so far and breach the Uruguayan defence.
Coito’s side hit the ground running with a 3-0 win over Canada and saw off Rwanda 1-0 last time out.
As such, backing England not to score at 21/10 could attract some of the smart money and would return £77.50 for those using their free £25 bet from bwin.
