England Stil too strong for Petrov’s boys?


England are 3/10 with Ladbrokes to get their European Championship qualification campaign off to a winning start at Wembley against Bulgaria, and 11/10 to win to nil without John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.

Stilyan Petrov’s visitors are 10/1, with the draw 4/1. After ending his dry spell, Wayne Rooney is 11/4 favourite to score first, with captain Steven Gerrard at 4/1 and in-form Theo Walcott at 6/1.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said, “Punters have been slow to get excited about the match but we reckon they’ll wade into the Three Lions as kick off approaches.”
