England specials: Countdown with World Cup Price Boosts
England only need to speak to their Commonwealth chums from Down Under to know that things could have been a lot worse when the draw was made in December but no-one is under any illusions that Roy Hodgson has a tough ask just to make it through.
However, with a great history of progressing past the group stages at the major events and many of the Three Lions’ key players in fine form domestically the newly enhanced price of Evens makes this a risk worth taking.
Wayne Rooney has achieved everything there is to in the English game but will be desperate to shrug off the criticisms of his international performances on the big stage.
Despite scoring four goals at Euro 2004 and being awarded the Golden Ball at the 2008 World Cup, the United forward has failed to live up to the expectations he generated at club level.
However, the 28-year-old is still the fifth highest goalscorer for his country and the newly enhanced price of 80/1 suddenly makes the bet hold plenty of appeal.
