England v Ukraine World Cup Qualifier Betting Preview & TipsFootball Betting Tips, International Football
So England have won one Brazil 2014 qualifier and there are already back page headlines declaring ‘We can win the World Cup.’
Truth be told that headline pre-dated the 5-0 thrashing of woeful Moldova, but you get the picture: here we go again. Another couple of years of building expectations only for a quarter-final penalties loss to [insert country] before we’re all taking down the St George flags again.
Next up for Roy’s boys is Ukraine, who can be expected to provide a much sterner test than their fellow former Soviet Union cousins.
England, unsurprisingly with a patriotic market, are 2/5 for the win, which represents no value, while the draw is a tempting 4s and the visitors are out to 8/1.
These two sides met only months ago in the competitive arena of Euro 2012. A Wayne Rooney goal on that occasion was enough for victory, but said saviour will be missing come Tuesday evening.
Likewise Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge – both second half substitutes against Moldova – are also doubts after missing training on Monday through ‘illness.’
The Chelsea defensive duo of Ashley Cole and John Terry have also been ruled out but Roy Hodgson has enough quality cover to negate those losses.
Ukraine were the last country to beat England in a qualifier, winning 1-0 in 2009, and the Three Lions are unlikely to have it all their own way.
The draw looks too high at 4/1 as does Ukraine draw no bet at 6s so they both get the vote.
