Rooney headlines Ladbrokes’ list of fantastic First Goalscorer boosts

| 14.06.2014

Another World Cup day and Ladbrokes have delivered another host of top odds enhancements with Colombian hotshot Jackson Martinez, Uruguay veteran Diego Forlan, England talisman Wayne Rooney and Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba all getting the Price Boost treatment.

On a bumper World Cup weekend Ladbrokes have left no stone unturned in the search for great value with Wayne Rooney headlining the bookmaker’s quartet of First Goalscorer boosts.

Wayne Rooney – WAS 6/1, NOW 7/1 to score first

Can the England striker hit back at his critics? 

The Manchester United man has come in for plenty of criticism in recent weeks as his place in the starting line-up coming under intense scrutiny from the media.

But if there is one man who can take it all in his stride it is Rooney with Ladbrokes boosting the 28-year-old to 7/1 (from 6/1) to score the first goal against Italy.

The former Everton striker has scored 39 goals in 91 appearances for the Three Lions and he will be desperate to put straight a record which has seen him fail to find the net in two previous attempts at a World Cup finals.

 Jackson Martinez – WAS 9/2, NOW 6/1 to score first

Can the Colombian impress on the world stage?

It’s no secret Jackson Martinez is a transfer target for a host of Europe’s top clubs, including Arsenal, but can the Colombia hitman impress Ladbrokes customers with the first goal of the game against Greece?

The Porto star was 9/2 but is now 6/1 to strike first against the Euro 2004 winners and send Los Cafeteros on their way to a possible second round encounter against Roy Hodgson’s men.

Diego Forlan – WAS 5/1, NOW 11/2 to score first

Didier Drogba – WAS 5/1, NOW 6/1 to score first

Have the veterans still got what it takes at the top level?

Our final two price boosts feature a former Manchester United star and a Chelsea legend!

With doubts surrounding Luis Suarez’s participation in Uruguay’s first group game, the goal scoring mantle could fall on Forlan and Ladbrokes have boosted the 35-year-old from 5/1 to 11/2 to score first against Costa Rica.

While Drogba is now 6/1 to fire Ivory Coast ahead against Japan in the final game of the evening!

Can the pair turn back time and find the scoring touch? Ladbrokes customers will be hoping so!
