WORLD CUP BETTING: Wayne Rooney has landed himself in some bother after insulting a referee in an England warm up game, can he control his notorious temper?
Wayne Rooney is 5/1 to be sent off during the World Cup with Ladbrokes after being told to control his temper by England’s final warm up match referee. Jeff Selogilwe reported that Rooney had insulted him during the match and Rooney was urged into a post-match apology.
Still, the Three Lions hitman is 11/1 with Paddy Power to emerge as the tournament’s top scorer.
Rooney is integral to the English cause and can ill afford to lose him to something as silly as swearing at officials. Fabio Capello’s men are currently 8/1 with Victor Chandler to lift the trophy, but you would fancy their chances to be heavily dented should Rooney be sent off in the group stages.
