Steven Gerrard is amongst the players that have pulled out of the England squad for the friendly clash in Denmark but Fabio Capello could nevertheless select a strong line-up in Copenhagen where his side are 5/4 favourites courtesy of Partybets.
However, these matches are far from easy to predict, especially when so many changes are likely to be made and as England arrive on the back of a disappointing goalless draw with Montenegro and a friendly defeat to France, it’s hard to get excited about an away win.
In fact with home advantage and against an England side still considered a significant scalp, the home side are a more appealing bet at 23/10 () although Coral’s 5/4 chalked against the Danes ‘Draw No Bet’ is slightly more attractive.
Darren Bent is set to start in attack for Capello’s side and after he opened his international account in their last away match, against Switzerland, he catches the eye at 15/8 with Stan James to notch in the Parken Stadium, where Coral mark 6/5 against a tally of more than 2.5 goals. The latter would have paid out in a dozen of the 16 friendly matches played under Fabio Capello’s stewardship.
Over 2.5 goals in the Denmark v England game – 6/5 (Coral)
