England vs France – Visitors liable to return home with something

| 17.11.2010

France are unbeaten in four games against England and will be keen to continue their recent dominance in the friendly clash at Wembley.

Match Odds

France won on their last trip to Wembley in 1999 and although they have no Nicolas Anelka to fire a winning double this time around, there is still a strong likelihood that they will again leave without defeat.

Fabio Capello has had to name a depleted squad because of injuries, with England’s attack looking especially weak on experience.

Meanwhile, with goalkeeper Joe Hart and defender Phil Jagielka picking up injuries in training that has left them big doubts, France could take on an even more raw line up.

It is 13/5 that France beat England and this is possible despite not having the services of star player Franck Ribery.

France have won their last three games 2-0 and 14/1 is being offered that they beat England by the same scoreline.

England have won five of their last six friendlies with their one blip coming in a defeat to Brazil in Qatar.

They are 11/10 to beat France, but the difficulty will be identifying where their goals are going to come from.

To Score At Any Time

Capello has already confirmed that Andy Carroll will start against France and earn a first full international cap.

The fact that he is liable to play for at least an hour because of this decision makes him one of the better football bets to score at any point in the game at 2/1.

Jordan Henderson has also been assured a debut in midfield and he is 6/1 to strike at any time.

Karim Benzema has netted in two of France’s recent three successes and is 11/4 to add his name to the scoresheet against England.

Only two of England’s squad to take on the French have scored more than ten international goals. See the whole England vs France friendly match betting odds market.
