Scott Parker is BetVictor’s 5/4 favourite, in from 3/1, to lead England out against France in June after being named stand-in skipper.
BetVictor Spokesperson Charlie McCann: “I would be amazed if Parker didn’t wear the armband in Poland/Ukraine and the 5/4 looks very big if, as expected, Harry Redknapp takes over for Euro 2012. It would be something of a surprise if Redknapp took the captaincy away from the Spurs player and one could argue that the 2011 England Player of the Year is 5/4 to remain injury free as he looks an automatic choice to be in the starting XI against Les Bleus.”
