Rooney 11/2 To Score First Tonight

19 June 2014

The best odds available to you on Sky Bet ahead of tonight's massive World Cup clash between England and Uruguay.

This is it. England must win to stay in the World Cup and Uruguay likewise. Prepare for fireworks in Brazil this evening.

Roy Hodgson's England may have performed well but their 2-1 defeat to Italy has left them on the brink but a win over Uruguay and Luis Suarez will put them in control of their own destiny.

They have the ability and they know it, but will they show it? The Three Lions have odds of 19/20 to run out victors tonight but Uruguay won't roll over at odds of 11/4. A draw would perhaps keep England in the tournament but only just. A draw is worth 11/4 too.

The big question is whether Rooney will play and, if so, where. It looks likely that Manchester United's striker will sit in behind Daniel Sturridge with Raheem Sterling occupying a wing position. Rooney is 11/2 to strike first and if you're feeling particularly ambitious about his talent then a brace is worth 9/1. Daniel Welbeck (10/1), Raheem Sterling (11/1) and Daniel Sturridge (5/1) are all likely first goalscorers but don't forget that the Uruguay danger man Luis Suarez is never to be ignored. Suarez is 5/1 to score first.

There will be plenty of nail biting, head scratching and emotional outpouring tonight but if you are passionate and confident that England can secure victory then there are some great odds available. A tight England 2-1 win is 7/1 right now on Sky Bet and an even more ambitious 3-1 victory is 12/1. A 1-1 draw is worth 6/1 but if you're completely confident in a comfortable victory then why not try 2-0 at 9/1? No, we didn't think so either!

There are plenty of other odds available on Sky Bet for this game such as:

- Uruguay to be leading at half time but England to win at full time? 22/1
- England to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2? 11/2
- Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez both to score? 5/1

We can't wait for the game and hopefully we see the Three Lions roar. Our bet of the evening will be Raheem Sterling to score first and England to win 2-1. That bet is worth 55/1 on Sky Bet right now.
