Kane Backed To Don World Cup Armband And Break Rooney’s Record

England face Slovenia on Thursday with one player in sparkling form for both club and country. Harry Kane is 9/4 to open the scoring and 7/10 to score anytime and he goes into this game as the odds on favourite with William Hill to be the England captain for the first game of the 2018 World Cup.


The Spurs striker is 4/11 to don the armband with Jordan Henderson 11/2 and Gary Cahill 6/1.


Kane is also just 7/2 to break Wayne Rooney’s England goalscoring record.


“Harry Kane is perhaps the one real world class player for England and the odds suggests that goalscoring and captaincy will rest on his shoulders,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Who will captain England at the first game of the Russia World Cup: 4/11 Harry Kane; 11/2 Jordan Henderson; 6/1 Gary Cahill; 8/1 Joe Hart; 12/1 John Stones; 16/1 Eric Dier; 25/1 Dele Alli
