A stronger resemblance of England’s best 11 will take to the field against Germany as opposed to the experimental side that was sent to do battle with Chile, which adds appeal to their 2/1 price for success at Wembley.
Even more value can be attached to these digits given that Joachim Loew’s 13/10 favourites are set to do a spot of tinkering themselves, with Mesut Ozil, Manuel Neuer and Phillip Lahm among the many big names omitted from the team.
Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and Joe Hart will start in a Three Lions set up that is much closer to the one that will run out for their first game in Brazil this summer.
Whether it’s good enough to overcome a German outfit at Wembley for the first time since 1975 remains to be seen, but there are a few tempting betting avenues for punters to explore.
Rooney to notch at any point of the game represents the first of these given that he will start the match.
He’s scored in two of his previous three outings and a price of 11/5 says he’ll add to his 38 senior strikes at some point in this clash. If you fancy the Manchester United man to bag the opener, Ladbrokes have enhanced his first goalscorer odds from 6/1 to 8/1.
Based on recent Anglo-Germanic dust ups, both teams to score should be fraternised with at 8/13.
Each of the previous four outings rewarded backers of this bet, just as they did with over 2.5-goal bettors too. A fifth straight instalment of the overs weighs in at a very fair 4/5 ahead of this clash and, with eight of the past 13 meetings in total surpassing this mark, history suggests there’s going to be goals scored when these two famous foes cross paths.
