As England take to the field for the first game of the Sam Allardyce era against Slovakia on Sunday, Wayne Rooney will become the Three Lions’ most-capped outfield player and he’s 14/1 to celebrate it with a David Beckham-esque free-kick.
The two England legends are tied on 115 caps apiece, with Rooney set to move to 116 this weekend.
We’re offering 14/1 the Manchester United forward marks the occasion by fizzing in a direct free-kick.
As Sam Allardyce takes charge of the national team for the first time, the bookies make it 21/10 for the former Bolton manager to begin his reign victoriously.
And in another first, the match will be Ladbrokes’ bow as official England bookmaker.
To celebrate, we’re running this cracking offer…
Get Money Back If It’s a Draw*
We will refund losing bets up to £/€25 on selected markets if the match ends in a DRAW. Money Back as Free Bet. See below for full Terms and Conditions.
It’s 8/1 that Rooney and last season’s Premier League top scorer Harry Kane both find the net on Sunday, as qualifying for the 2018 World Cup gets underway, while it’s also 8s that two or more Tottenham players get on the scoresheet.
Meanwhile 20/1 says that ITV hand the Man of the Match award to surprise inclusion Michail Antonio, who could make his international debut this weekend.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “To celebrate the match being our first as official England bookmaker, we’ve rolled out a massive offer. We’ll be cheering England on, but if the game does end in a draw fans will receive refunds on plenty of markets.”
“It’s a big night for Rooney too, and it would be poetry if the current captain marks the occasion with a set-piece befitting of England’s former skipper.”
