10/3 Rio To Fill Terry’s Boots...8/1 Anton Does
Rio Ferdinand has proclaimed his readiness to fill John Terry's boots for England but William Hill have a completely different view, easing the Manchester United defender's odds of an October call up from 7/4 to 10/3.
It looks as if Hodgson mainstays, Phil Jagielka (1/5), Joleon Lescott (1/6) and Gary Cahill (1/6) will be the first three centre backs included in the England squad, but William Hill think it will be a tight race should the England boss include a fourth centre back.
"Hodgson has generally stuck with four centre backs so far during his England tenure and with Terry stepping down, there is room for a new face to enter the England fold," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Chris Smalling leads the way at 2/1 to be included in the squad but Ryan Shawcross (3/1), Steven Caulker (7/2), Steven Taylor (4/1), Craig Dawson (4/1), and Michael Dawson (5/1) could all be in with a chance. A more outside bet could be the 8/1 being offered about Anton Ferdinand being included.
Will Rio Ferdinand be named in the next England squad announced in October: 1/5 no; 10/3 yes
To Be Included in the next England Squad for games Vs San Marino & Poland: 1/6 Joleon Lescott (7/2 not to), 1/6 Gary Cahill (7/2), 1/5 Phil Jagielka (10/3), 2/1 Chris Smalling (4/11), 3/1 Ryan Shawcross (2/9), 7/2 Steven Caulker (1/6), 4/1 Steven Taylor (1/7), 4/1 Craig Dawson (1/7), 5/1 Michael Dawson (1/9), 8/1 Anton Ferdinand (1/20)
