With only 100 days to go until Brazil 2014, England welcome Denmark to Wembley on Wednesday evening as Roy Hodgson looks to narrow his squad down before the final 23 set sail for South America. The match is live on ITV and we have some free football betting tips for you.
Generally speaking an International Break for friendlies struggles to raise the interest of even the most avid football enthusiast. However, with Brazil just around the corner there are plenty of places still up for grabs in England's squad, so Wednesday's game does carry some significance. Hodgson sprung a few surprises in his squad selection, while Adam Johnson and Gareth Barry could consider themselves unlucky at their exclusion, both Luke Shaw and Raheem Sterling will be delighted to have one foot in the door.
England's opponents on the night will be Denmark, they were the unfortunate ninth placed runner up in the qualifiers and therefore missed out on the chance to book their place in the finals via the playoffs. The Danes should certainly count themselves unlucky as they had by far one of the toughest groups. Despite ten points from their last four games, poor early form cost them, in particular the 4-0 home defeat to Armenia. Early prices have Denmark as 5/1 underdogs with the draw on offer at 14/5. England are a best price 4/6 which may be a little short for a single. However, Bet365 have England to be winning at half time and full time at 6/4. Seeing as Hodgson is likely to start with his strongest team, this is far better value for money.
Trying to predict the lineups for such games can be notoriously difficult, but considering his purple patch in the Premier League, Daniel Sturridge is surely going to get the nod up front. After equalling Ruud van Nistelrooy's record for consecutive goals, the Liverpool man has one of the best goal to game ratios in Europe at the moment. At 11/2 with Bet365, back him to open the scoring on the night, and also to score in an England win at 7/4 with Coral.
Finally, after a highly impressive debut, Adam Lallana with surely be high on confidence heading Wednesday's game. A tremendous season at Southampton has seen The Saints captain rack up seven goals and five assists in the league this season. A likely starter against the Danes, back him to be the Man of the Match with Bet Victor at 16/1.
