England Set For Super Start To World Cup Campaign!

England Set For Super Start To World Cup Campaign!

Despite a paper thin squad and lack of fit strikers, England go into Friday's opening World Cup qualifier against Moldova as resounding favourites at 1/4. Wayne Rooney, Andy Carroll, Ashley Young, and Adam Johnson have all fallen by the way side but England are still 8/11 to pick up six points from the trip to Moldova and Tuesday's home fixture against Ukraine.

The Three Lions are expected to get off to a good start in Moldova with two goals expected at 11/5. It is 9/2 that England score four or more, 7/2 for three and 5/1 that the unusual looking frontline fail to score. If you think it will be a goal-fest then William Hill are offering 3/1 that England beat the Moldovans by three goals or more. Steven Gerrard is 2/1 to score anytime and England to win, with a John Terry goal and an England victory a 10/1 shot.

England are 4/11 to top Group H with Ukraine the 11/2 second favourites, Hodgson's men are 20/1 to win the World Cup in Brazil.

"The odds suggest that England will get off to a super start, but a lack of fit strikers could make Hodgson's task a little harder," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
