England squad Judi Online announcement
Roy Hodgson has revealed a 21-man squad England squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers at home to San Marino on Thursday the 9th of October and then away to Estonia on Sunday the 12th.
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Man City), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Ben Foster (West Brom
Defenders: Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka & John Stones (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal)
Midfielders: Jonjo Shelvey (Swansea), Fabian Delph (Aston Villa), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Jack WIlshere (Arsenal), Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling & Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Milner (Man City), Andros Townsend (Tottenham)
Forwards: Wayne Rooney (Man Utd), Rickie Lambert (Liverpool), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)
Roy Hodgson continues his rebuilding for the future with a number of unfamiliar faces in his squad, knowing a home win over San Marino is all but a given and Estonia away should pose few problems.
Youth is definitely the emphasis with Wayne Rooney now an unlikely veteran, but the assured performance in midweek of 33 year-old Ashley Cole for Roma against Manchester City will have given the England manager pause for thought.
Daniel Sturridge misses out through injury, leaving only a Judi Online trio of strikers, although Danny Welbeck’s hat-trick for Arsenal in the Champions League against Galatasary last night will have comforted Hodgson.
After a miserable World Cup campaign in Brazil, England got off to the best possible start in their race to Euro 2016 by winning 2-0 away at their biggest group rivals Switzerland.
Six points from these two games will put The Three Lions in the driving seat in Group E as the other group opponents Lithuania and Slovenia are unlikely to give the F.A. sleepless nights.
Champions League qualification from Group E will be going to the wire with bet365 asking where Manchester City will finish.
The Sergio Aguero inspired side are 10/11 to nab the all-important second spot, 6/1 to finish third and end up in the Europa League and 11/8 to finish bottom of the pile after their comeback against runaway group leaders Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
bet365’s Steve Freeth “A roller coaster of a night at the Etihad would have had Man City In-Play backers (biggest price 50/1) cheering Aguero to the rafters and if we’ve done our maths correctly, they now go into Matchday 6 at odds-on to qualify.”
Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is pleased that the team’s Champions League hopes are still in their own hands going into the final group game against Basel. The Reds can still reach the last-16 despite Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Ludogorets in Sofia which means they have only won one of their five Group B encounters. However, Liverpool will qualify for the knockout stages of the competition if they beat Basel at Anfield next month. “It’s still in our hands and that’s a big bonus for us,” Allen said. “We all believe we can do it. We’re at Anfield and we’ll be calling on all our supporters to get behind us and make it a seriously tough night for Basel.” Liverpool entertain Stoke City at Anfield on Saturday in the Premier League and are 15/2 with bet365 to win the match 2-0. They can be backed at 4/7 to qualify for the last-16 of the Champions League.
