England v Holland Preview - Win Tickets For England v Belgium

William Hill are the Official Betting Partner of the England National Team and the FA, and you can take advantage of this partnership!

We are giving away tickets to England versus Belgium on Saturday 2nd June 2012.  It is England's final warm-up game at Wembley before Euro 2012.

Betting on England against Holland has never been easier, we have better prices and a huge range of markets.

To win these tickets, all you have to do is place a £1 bet on any pre-match market on the game, you then qualify for the prize draw*.

Stuart Pearce now has a chance to stake his claim as England manager, he has selected a young squad for the match against the Netherlands. It has been rumoured that Redknapp will take the job permanently pre-Euro 2012 but Pearce could be the man.

Rooney has pulled out of the squad already but he is suspended for the first two games in the Euros. Pearce will call upon a young strike force, Fraizer Campbell (7/1 first goal), Danny Wellbeck (6/1) and Daniel Sturridge (13/2).

The England win is 9/5, the draw is 2/1 and a Dutch victory is 17/10. The Dutch reached the final of the last World Cup and they originally named seven Premier League stars for the clash. However, Spurs' attacking midfielder Rafa van der Vaart has withdrawn through injury.

If you fancy Pearce's temporary reign to start poorly, you can back the Dutch at 4/5 draw no bet.

However, after going unbeaten in fourteen games following the 2010 World Cup final, the Dutch have lost two of their last three fixtures, drawing the other.

England obviously named a weakened side and most players do not know the manager. If you are English and fancy a 'patriotic' punt, they are 19/20 draw no bet and 4/9 double chance.

One player that will be looking to impress again at Wembley is Dirk Kuyt. He was inspirational after his 103rd-minute introduction in the Carling Cup Final for Liverpool on Sunday. He scored within five minutes of coming on and he is 10/1 to open the scoring and 7/2 anytime scorer.

Arsenal's Van Persie is a familiar name in Holland's squad, despite topping the Premier League goal-charts with twenty-three goals, he has only scored once in his last seven matches for his country. He is in-form and he should be buoyed by the Gunners 5-2 comeback against Spurs at the weekend.  He is 5/4 to score anytime.

Here at William Hill, we want to put our weight behind England but Holland's Van Persie is in sensational form for his club. So for the Match Winner, we have enhanced the price of Van Persie to score anytime and England to win the match from 6/1 to 8/1!

Sturridge has been one of the few bright spots for Chelsea this season and he will be hoping to start England's opening Euro 2012 match.

He may be inexperienced on the international stage but he has scored goals playing on the wing for the Blues. He is 6/1 to open the scoring and England's last eight goals against the Netherlands have been scored by strikers.
