In-Form Players To Struggle To Displace ‘Old Guard’

He may only be two games away from breaking the consecutive goals record (for which he is 5/1 with William Hill to do so) but Jamie Vardy is odds against to start England’s first match of the Euros at 2/1 with Raheem Sterling (1/4), Wayne Rooney (1/7) and Daniel Sturridge (4/6) all seemingly ahead of the in-form Leicester striker.
In goal, Jack Butland has been in fine form this season so far, however, Joe Hart is the clear favourite to wear the number one shirt for England’s first game of the Euros. Hart is 1/10 with Jack Butland 7/1.

England are 4/1 to defeat Spain on Friday, for which the current holders the Euros are 8/11.
