Betting Preview: Manchester United stars ready to shine for England

United’s young guns have certainly impressed England boss Fabio Capello who has called up Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling into the senior squad for their Euro 2012 qualifier against Bulgaria (bonus link: video interview with Cleverley and Jones).

They join team mates Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young, who will be keen to carry on their goal scoring exploits on the international stage in tomorrow night’s game (7.15pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 1).

Not surprisingly the striking duo top the bookmakers lists for who will open the scoring.

Rooney, who maintained his red-hot start in the Premier League with a hat-trick against Arsenal, is a 5 chance with BoylesSports to net first and a top priced 2.2 with Bet365 to score anytime.

You can also get 3.75 with Bet365 that Wazza draws a blank in this and next week’s game against Wales.

Young, who scored two screamers in United’s 8-2 demolition of the Gunners, is a top priced 8.5 with Victor Chandler to be first on the scoresheet and that price looks on the large side for a player who is bursting with confidence.

Stan James also go 3.25 for him to score anytime, and that looks fair given that he and Rooney look the pair most likely to unlock the Bulgarian defence.

Of the United young guns in the squad travelling to Sofia, Smalling looks the most likely to start having excelled since covering at full-back for Rafael at Old Trafford.

He normally play as a centre-half alongside Jones for England U21s, and with no Glen Johnson, there is certainly be an opening in that position for the national side at present.

He’s a 34 chance with BetFred and Victor Chandler to score first.

England, who crushed Bulgaria 4-0 at Wembley last season, are general 1.57 shots to win the match, but are unlikely to repeat that scoreline.

In what is likely to be a tight game 1-0 could be worth a punt at 6 with BetFred.

    Might have to start watching Engerlang again if they are bringing in the Young talent.

    £10 it’s Terry, lampard, Barry…..Snore………zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  2. Clint-iamyourpapii says:

    England are crap. But their starting XI should be

    Richards Jones Smalling A.Hole
    Theodore Clevs Parker Young
    Rooney Bent

    As usual they’ll go with Terry,lescott,milner, carroll – brainless oafs fuck em

    England are shite, rather watch time team

    “With no Glen Johnson there’s an opening at prsent.”

    Hahahahah, fucking laughable. Pants Johnson isn’t fit to shine Smalling’s boots and Smalling’s not even a RB by trade.

  7. Red Riding Wolf says:

    England will be well represented by United players in the coming years. Might have to start watching them again! Not my country, though. The form Rooney’s in, you have to think he will score? That twat Terry will be sweating like nun in whore house. Jones is the heir apparent. Get him in there Fabio!

  8. Zibbie says:

    Rooney, Young and Wellbeck future England attack.

  9. berbatunday says:

    ok l may sound off, but l am still not convinced with smalling at Rb, He is done well, but each time he moves forward with the ball, I always feel he is gonna lose it, He is got a long stride so it may be hard to keep possession of the ball. Anyways early days may be he will improve that aspect but for now l wanna see him at CB and may be Jones at RB

  10. Red Riding Wolf says:

    He’s not a natural RB, that’s why! The lads covering for Rafael. I see Smalling developing into a top CH. With Jones as well, United and England will benefit from it.
