Will Capello Leave Rooney Out Of Squad?
WILLIAM HILL quote odds of 11/4 that Fabio Capello will leave Wayne Rooney out of the Euro 2012 finals' squad - and 1/ 4 that he will select him. Hills also offer 5/6 that he will have his 3 match ban reduced by UEFA. 'It seems ludicrous even to think Capello might leave Rooney out of the squad, but there is a chance that his ban could be increased on appeal and Capello may have finally lost patience with him' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
On the back of the news that Wayne Rooney has received a three match ban from UEFA, William Hill have shunted England's odds of winning Euro 2012 out by two points from 9/1 to 11/1. He is 14/1 to receive a red card at the tournament.
"The increase in odds reflects the fact that Rooney has to be considered the only real world class striker in Capello's armoury," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Wayne Rooney has been pushed out from 9/2 second favourite to 11/2 fourth favourite to be top scorer for England at the tournament behind Darren Bent (7/2), Andy Carroll (9/2) and Steven Gerrard (5/1).
England are 4/7 to qualify from their group but 5/4 to fail to make it to the quarter finals. Rooney is 2/1 to fail to start an England Euro 2012 game (4/11 to start at least one match).
