England set to brush Slovakia aside in Big Sam’s first assignment

| 04.09.2016

Having finished Euro 2016 qualifying as the only team with a 100 per cent record, the Three Lions are set to carry on where they left off as the road to Russia begins with a trip to Slovakia.

Jan Kozak’s men were fortunate to take a point from England in a one-sided game at the Euros – but Sam Allardyce’s men have an otherwise perfect record against Slovenski sokoli, having defeated them in each of the other three meetings.

The most impressive of those victories, a 4-0 triumph back in 2009 saw a certain Wayne Rooney find the net twice at Wembley, and the Manchester United man will break David Beckham’s record as England’s most capped outfield player if he makes his 116th appearance for the national side in Trnava on Sunday.

And having scored in 12 of his last 20 games for the Three Lions, there’s plenty of value in backing Rooney to score anytime at 9/4, while 12/1 says the captain can repeat his feat of 2009 by netting twice or more.

For those backing England’s strikers to fill their boots against a Slovakia side who have only kept four clean sheets in their last 16 home games, you can also back Rooney and Kane both to net at 8/1, while it’s the same price for Vardy and Kane to each find the net.

In the match betting, Big Sam’s boys look by far the best value at Evens for victory, with 10/3 for a Slovakian win and 23/10 for the draw.
