England U-21s must beat Norway U-21s after losing their opening group game – and the Tipster is backing Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha to fire Stuart Pearce’s side to glory on Saturday night.

Our man-in-the-know is tipping Pearce’s men to beat Norway but in a low-scoring game at the Under-21 European championship, with his long shot Thomas Ince to score first.

Zaha to score any time for England U-21s v Norway U-21s – 7/5

Zaha has been passed “fit and available” for England’s second group game against Norway. Pearce’s men lacked a cutting edge in their 1-0 loss to Italy but Zaha should provide more of an attacking threat. The 20-year-old was in fine form as he helped Crystal Palace reach the promised land of the Premier League, scoring six goals throughout the campaign. The Tipster fancies Zaha to score any time on Saturday night at 7/5.

Under 2.5 goals in England U-21s v Norway U-21s – 17/20

Pearce set his men up to contain the Italians in the first match on Wednesday night. His tactics backfired as the Azzurri scored with eight minutes remaining, and in truth, they could have won by a greater margin. Having said that, it was the first goal England have conceded since November 2011. The Three Lions are a conservative outfit who like to keep it tight. As a result, the Tipster reckons under 2.5 goals in England U-21s against Norway U-21s is a good shout at 17/20.

England U-21s to beat Norway U-21s – 17/20

Norway welcome back Valon Berisha, Markus Heriksen, Joshua King and Havard Nordtveit to their U-21 squad after featuring for the senior team in the World Cup qualifiers on Friday night. Despite having strengthened their travelling party, Norway will still struggle against England. Pearce has a great array of talent at his disposal, and with Thomas Ince and Zaha back fit, they should be able to secure their first win of the tournament. England to beat Norway is 17/20.

Under 2.5 goals and England U-21s to beat Norway U-21s – 10/3

The Tipster expects England to beat the Norwegians – but by a slender margin. Before their opening loss to Italy, England were on a four-game winning streak since September 2012. But Pearce’s men won by a scoreline of 1-0 in four of those five matches, with their biggest victory a 2-0 success against Azerbaijan. The Tipster reckons under 2.5 goals and England to beat Norway is a good bet at 10/3.

The long shot: Ince to score first in England U-21s v Norway U-21s – 15/2

Blackpool winger Ince returns from suspension and should earn an immediate starting spot for this must-win encounter. The 21-year-old was in brilliant from for the Tangerines throughout the campaign, scoring 18 goals in 44 appearances this season. He has netted twice in six appearances for the England U-21s since being called into the squad in August 2012. The Tipster’s long shot is Ince to score first at a rather tempting 15/2.
