International football resumes on Wednesday evening, starting with a round of friendlies. They may not be the most exciting of fixtures, but there are already quite a few promising encounters to relish.

Perhaps the biggest tussle will be between Iberian rivals Portugal and Spain. These two nations boast one of the oldest rivalries in international football, with 36 meetings having gone down since 1934. The last encounter, in fact, ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the 2018 World Cup.

World champions France, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands are also in action.

So now we got the small details out of the way, it’s time to ask the big question in who will score. International friendlies can often spring up a few surprise scorers. Especially for several up-and-coming players, who may get their first chance in a relatively low-risk environment.

Using the anytime goalscorer market, however, we can make use of the bet remaining valid for the entire game. It eliminates the risk of your tip needing to score either first or last – as long as he is on the pitch!

Defenders, midfielders, set-piece, or penalty takers can get excellent value in return for these kinds of bets.

So Ace Football picks out the best anytime goalscorer tips for Wednesday’s round of international football.

Portugal vs Spain – Cristiano Ronaldo (6/5)

Ronaldo has been in scintillating form for club and country since the start of the season. Three goals in two Serie A games proves his worth for Juventus, but it’s with Portugal where his stats skyrocket.

The 35-year-old has scored in all of his last nine appearances for Portugal since leading the team to Nations League glory in June 2019, scoring a remarkable 13 goals.

Let’s not forget that brilliant hat-trick he scored against Spain in the 2018 World Cup either, huh? That last gasp free-kick was one of the best moments of the tournament and left David de Gea ruined afterward.

Unibet has Ronaldo priced at 6/5 on Oddschecker to score at any time against Spain in Lisbon.

Poland vs Finland – Teemu Pukki (5/2)

The 30-year-old was one of the star performers in the first-half of last season’s Premier League, but his form faded towards the end. Life back in the Championship this term hasn’t been a treat either. In fact, he’s scored just once in Norwich’s opening four games in the English second-tier division.

Pukki has performed strongly at international level for Finland, however, with 25 goals in 82 appearances.

The former Schalke striker has also scored five goals in his last five appearances for Finland.

Bet365 on Oddschecker has Pukki priced at 5/2 to score for Wednesday’s friendly in Poland.

France vs Ukraine – Olivier Giroud (11/10)

While Giroud continues to struggle for regular opportunities at Chelsea, he is still going strong for France.

The striker is just one goal shy of equaling Michel Platini’s record of 41 goals ahead of his 100th appearance. Scoring against Ukraine to become Les Bleus’ second-highest goalscorer ever would be a fitting way to cap off his big night.

This motive, on top of the fact Giroud has scored three goals in his last five games for France, makes him a decent anytime goalscorer tip in Paris.

Unibet has Giroud priced at 11/10 on Oddschecker to score at anytime.
