The Three Lions continue their Euro 2016 campaign as England face Slovenia, as punters pile into Paddy Power free bets and enhanced odds of 8/1 to win the match.
The jovial bookie has announced that it is enhancing the price on the England win today from 3/4 to a massive 8/1, with the price already seeing plenty of interest from punters and fans across the country.
England will go in search of their 6th straight qualifying win when they travel to take on Slovenia today, kick off 5pm.
Roy Hodgson’s men have been impressive form since they limped out of the world cup last year with the focus on youth really starting to deliver results.
Evolution and consistency has been key, a point validated by Wayne Rooney in the pre-match interview.
“I think we’ve made huge strides after the World Cup,” said the Captain.
“Obviously losing Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard as well. For the lads to come into the squad and for us to go through the season up to now unbeaten – seven victories, two draws – it’s still a great achievement from the players”
“But we want to cement that tomorrow night with a good performance, hopefully get the three points and then we can turn around and say we had a fantastic year with England and will give us a good platform to kick on for the following season.”
Rooney will hope to be amongst the goals in Ljubjanna on Sunday after drawing a blank in the 0-0 draw with Ireland last weekend.
The Manchester United forward needs just two goals to draw level with Sir Bobby Charlton.
Rooney will more than likely have Raheem Sterling up front alongside him with Andros Townsend and Kieran Gibbs expected to come in for Adam Lallana and Ryan Bertrand.
Otherwise it is as you were for Hodgson as he bids to guide England through an International season, unbeaten for the first time in 24 years.
The Three Lions already hold a 6 point lead at the top of their group and another win today would move them even closer to a place in the European championship in France next summer.
They have already beaten Slovenia this campaign winning 3-1 at Wembley however the home side, ranked 48th in the world, have picked up nine points in Group E, winning both their home qualifiers so far with seven goals scored and none conceded.
