In form Johnson 6/1 for World Cup call

After a string of sparkling performances Sunderland winger Adam Johnson is being tipped to make a return to the international fold and remains a very tempting best price of 6/1 to be in the England squad for this summer’s World Cup.

The 26-year-old has been the catalyst for a huge up-turn in his side’s fortunes and has found the back of the net seven times in his last seven appearances. He already has 11 caps for his country and there seems to be every chance that he could be on the plane to Brazil.

This makes the 6/1 William Hill are offering on Johnson making the World Cup squad a very generous price indeed; all the more so when considering that he is as low as 2/1 elsewhere.

One thing going against Johnson is the fact that all his England caps came before Roy Hodgson took over as manager so it is unclear as to whether the current boss rates him as highly as the previous one.

A player Hodgson certainly does hold in high regard is Andy Carroll who performed well for England in Euro 2012 under his stewardship. The West Ham target man has been struggling with injury but was instrumental in the Hammers’ win over Swansea at the weekend and if he can perform well until the end of the season his best price of 4/1 with Bet Victor to make it to the World Cup looks like good value.
