Ireland and England strikers receive wincast price boosts

If you are a Ladbrokes customer planning to settle down to your Sunday afternoon by watching Republic of Ireland take on England, then here are some price boosts to seriously consider.

The firm are enhancing one of either side’s biggest goal threats to score as part of a win for their respective home nation in this ‘friendly’ match at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.

Shane Long to score and Ireland to win was 6/1, NOW 8/1

Ireland may be tempted to wrap a few players in cotton wool ahead of their crunch qualifier with Scotland, but expect Southampton hotshot Long to play at least some part.

A brace in his penultimate appearance of the Premier League season issued Ireland boss Martin O’Neill with a timely reminder of what he is capable of.

Long was the Irish hero last time they took to the field, coming on late to earn the Boys in Green a crucial equaliser at the Aviva against group leaders Poland in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Wayne Rooney to score and England to win, was 5/2, NOW 7/2

Since World Cup ignominy last summer Roy Hodgson’s new-look side have gelled extremely well as they approach a year without tasting defeat.

The Three Lions have won seven of their last eight games and no one typifies their good form better than their talisman and captain, Rooney.

The Manchester United striker has racked up seven goals in his last eight appearances for his country and the England penalty taker has Sir Bobby Charlton’s record firmly in his sights.
