What are the odds?! Five good bets to make England Euro 2016 squad

| 14.10.2015

With England through to Euro 2016 after a 100 per cent record, attention turns to the inevitable postulation of who will make Roy Hodgson’s final squad.

The Three Lions are 11/1 to win the tournament in France next summer, though their chances will depend on whether the manager takes the right players.

Coral’s unrivaled market on who makes the squad is predicted by our in-house analysts to go into overdrive in the coming months, so we thought we would give early punters a heads up with five good value bets, before odds begin to plummet!

Still interested?

We know you are, so keep reading and find out which five promising players we have for you to increase chances of banking some cash for the summer!

Alex McCarthy: 10/1
With Southampton’s Fraser Forster out for the majority of the season, it will be touch and go as to whether he can fully recover in time and we think the Crystal Palace stopper is worth a bet based on his exploits so far. Eagle-eyed punters will have spied that McCarthy has been a vital component in taking his club to fourth spot in the Premier League so far this term.

Scott Dann: 12/1
Staying in the depths of south London, Eagles’ 28-year-old centre back Dann has been inspirational so far this term, even finding the net, showcasing his ability from set pieces. If he continues to perform well, we think he could definitely come across Hodgson’s radar.

Aaron Cresswell: 20/1
One of the players of the season last term, West Ham United’s left back is blessed with talent and can definitely push for a spot in the England squad. With Luke Shaw injured, it remains to be seen whether he can get back to full fitness in time, while Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs is yet to really convince.

Nathan Redmond: 12/1
Makes things happen for Norwich and he could be a wildcard selection for Hodgson. His pace off the bench could be vital for England late on and he is somewhat of an unknown quantity for other teams. Should he keep performing well, the winger might be given a chance and he also has an eye for goal.

Jay Rodriguez: 5/1
Picked for Hodgson’s preliminary World Cup squad before getting injured in a warm-up match, the forward is on his way back and there is every chance of him rediscovering his form under Ronald Koeman. If he starts scoring, his odds will start to drop, so don’t miss out and take this price now!
