BET: Back England and Jamie Vardy to beat Slovenia

8 June 2015

Vardy made his debut against the Republic of Ireland

England head to Ljubljana on Sunday evening as they resume their European Championship qualifying campaign against Slovenia.

Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions will head into proceedings off the back of a 0-0 stalemate in the friendly with the Republic of Ireland – though they have won five out of five games in qualifying.

England will be hoping to do the double over their opponents, having already beaten Slovenia in Euro 2016 qualifying, following a 3-1 win at Wembley in November last year.

Despite the draw in Dublin on Sunday, England are expected to continue their march towards the European Championships in France next year with a routine win at the Stozice Stadium.

All eyes will be on England’s forward line, with Wayne Rooney just two goals short of Sir Bobby Charlton’s record, with the Manchester United striker currently on 47 for his country.

At the other end of the international scale, former Fleetwood Town forward Jamie Vardy could cap off a memorable week by making his first ever start for England – and Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin could also be set for
his debut.

The pair have both had impressive campaigns for their respective club sides, and manager Roy Hodgson will be keen to see what both Vardy and Austin can do on the international stage.

If you fancy having a flutter on England’s fortunes, Football League sponsors Sky Bet are offering odds of 5/6 on England to win on Sunday evening.

Slovenia currently sit second in Group E, six points behind Hodgson’s men in the standings ahead of kick-off and will be looking to close that gap.

They will be hoping to pull off an upset when the two sides meet, and go into the encounter having beat San Marino 6-0 in their last European Championship qualifier back in March.

If you want to back Slovenia, Sky Bet are offering odds of 100/30 on a home victory – with the draw backed at a 5/2.
