England to remain unbeaten during 2015 – 10/3
The World Cup in Brazil aside, England were unbeaten in their 10 other matches in 2014 and, with no major tournaments to take place in 2015, back them to achieve that feat once more.
England to win all of their matches in 2015 – 40/1
This is a tougher ask for the Three Lions, as the vastly lengthened odds suggest, but it is an achievement within reach for Roy Hodgson’s men.
So far, England are on a run of six straight victories, including winning their first four Euro 2016 qualifiers. They have nine fixtures scheduled for 2015, with just friendlies with fellow World Cup failures Italy and France their only real tests.
Charlie Austin to score an England goal in 2015 – 6/4
Austin, 25, is fast becoming one of the country’s most sought-after strikers, after netting an incredible 12 Premier League goals already this season for relegation-threatened QPR.
Despite never being capped by England at any level, surely a senior call-up is on the cards for him, and this price is too good not to bet on the deadly poacher.
Harry Kane to score an England goal in 2015 – evens
Spurs’ Kane is another hot English property and potential Three Lions superstar. The youngster they call Hurri-Kane has 15 goals in all competitions this term, and has been tipped to be promoted from the England Under-21 set-up this year, where he is no doubt nailed on to net.
Wayne Rooney to score a hat-trick for England in 2015 – 5/2
Three Lions skipper Rooney continues to be the country’s main man, and will get the chance to hit hat-tricks against the likes of footballing minnows Lithuania (twice), San Marino and Estonia in 2015.
Wayne Rooney to be sent off for England during 2015 – 10/1
The Manchester United star does has an infamous temperament, though, seeing red literally twice in his England career, the joint-highest total with David Beckham. Rooney is chasing a few outright national records, but this is one he will not want to achieve.
Wayne Rooney to break the England scoring record during 2015 – 1/2
Rooney is already the leading scorer for England in competitive fixtures, but he is only four goals away from beating Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing total of 49 and becoming the first Three Lions player to hit a half century of strikes.
With eight goals in 13 caps in 2014, surely four in nine is more than achievable?
