Firm offers 6/1 Wayne Rooney to score (was 6/5)
Paddy Power have announced they are offering an ‘enhanced’ price on Wayne Rooney to score anytime during tonight’s match at 6/1 (was 6/5) More details below!
The Three Lions have lost their last two home games, to Chile and Germany respectively, however despite standing on the brink of becoming the first England manager to lose three home games Roy Hodgson has decided to experiment against the Danish.
“The Denmark game is very much a game where I’ve got to think about what experimentations I need,” Hodgson said.
“If we take Steven Gerrard, does he need to play against Denmark to prove to me that he needs to play against Italy (in the first match of the World Cup)?
“Would I be better off playing somebody else because I know what Steven Gerrard can do? He’s got 103 caps. Could (Wayne) Rooney be in the same category as Gerrard? And Joe Hart too?”
That should mean that the likes of exciting Southampton trio Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez should be a run out as too will in-form Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling and the returning Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
With three more games to play after the clash with the Danes, the fact that Hodgson is still willing to experiment with his squad suggests that there are places up for grabs and good performances from the aforementioned quintet could see them force their way into the former WBA manager’s plans.
Spurs defender Kyle Walker won’t feature on Wednesday as he is only making his way back after a hip injury and missed his club side’s clash with Cardiff. His team-mate Andros Townsend, some impressive in the autumn friendlies sat out training on Monday but is expected to be fit.
Denmark meanwhile are missing some players of their own with Christian Eriksen struggling and Martin Braithwaite definitely out.
The Danes finished their world cup qualifying in style, hammering Malta 6-0 however while it was enough to seal the runners up spot in Group B it was not enough to make it into the playoffs and so Morten Olsen’s will watch from afar.
Olsen will instead focus his side on reaching an eighth European Championship in 36 years.
