Wayne Rooney out to 4-6 to start against Russia
Leading bookmaker Coral has pushed Wayne Rooney out to 4-6 (from 1-3) to start for England against Russia in the Three Lions’ Euro 2016 opener following the form of Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy in the recent friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands, while the England captain can be backed at 11-10 with the firm not to be in the starting XI.
England remain unchanged at 9-1 in the outright betting for the European Championship later this summer despite losing at Wembley tonight, with France topping the outright betting with Coral at 11-4.
Danny Drinkwater is now odds-on at 10-11 to make the squad for Euro 2016 where he was cut from 11-10 this evening, while in the to start vs Russia market, Adam Lallana has been trimmed into 5-4 (from 11-8).
“The latest betting now suggests Wayne Rooney is far from a certain starter for the game against Russia. Both Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy have done their claims no harm at all in England’s recent friendlies so much so only Joe Hart is a shorter price than Kane to start their Euro 2016 opener,” said Coral’s John Hill.
