England 6/4 to remain unbeaten in qualifying
England are 6/4 with Coral to remain unbeaten in qualifying ahead of their crucial Group H match away to Montenegro on Tuesday evening.
The Three Lions have won three and drawn two of their opening five matches in qualifying and Coral quote, 7/2 for Roy Hodgson’s men to win all five of their remaining matches in Group H.
“Tuesday’s fixture represents England’s biggest test to date in qualifying so far. Montenegro currently sit two points ahead of England in Group H so if Roy Hodgson’s men are going to automatically qualify through to the World Cup finals, they must come away from Montenegro victorious,” Coral’s Tim Reynolds told Football Betting News.
The fixture against Montenegro sees Wayne Rooney return to the Podgorica City Stadium for the first time since he was sent-off in a Euro 2012 qualifier. It’s 25/1 for Rooney to see red again and it’s 11/4 for any player to be sent off in the match.
With Wayne Rooney near enough guaranteed to start upfront against Montenegro, the question is, who will partner the 27-year-old. It’s 3/1 for Jermain Defoe to start upfront with Rooney, 4/1 that Daniel Sturridge is handed a starting place and /-3 that Roy Hodgson plays Danny Welbeck alongside Rooney.
