Roy Hodgson rang the changes in the second-half against Wales, and his super subs delivered in the most dramatic fashion, with Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge coming off the bench to net. And it’s 6/4 that any England sub comes on to score against Slovakia.
Fans of the Three Lions may be hoping for a slightly more relaxing victory over Jan Kozak’s men, after the last-gasp triumph over Wales.
However, those tipping more 11th-hour glory for Roy’s boys can back the Three Lions to find the net in second-half injury-time again (5/1). And on the back of the Home Nations’ clash and Eric Dier’s 91st-minute winner in Germany, it could prove a very smart bet indeed.
And lightning could also strike twice for England’s dynamic strike duo, with 13/2 for Vardy and Sturridge to repeat the feat by both scoring against Slovenski sokoli.
English optimism is building, with one high-rolling fan having already backed a Three Lions victory with a whopping £20,000 bet, while the 7/1 for Hodgson’s men to defy history and score a penalty is also proving popular with supporters.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Three Lions fans are on a high and backing their boys for victory here. The only people worried today are the bookies with a huge payout on the cards if England topple Slovakia.”
