There are only likely to be a few marginal calls for England boss Roy Hodgson as he names his World Cup squad on Monday. The primary one is whether it will be West Ham’s Andy Carroll or Southampton’s Rickie Lambert who gets the spot as the Plan B attacker in the squad. Southampton’s Lambert netted an opening goal against Manchester United on Sunday, and is trading at 10/11 to get on the plane, compared to 5/4 on Carroll.

Lambert’s Southampton team mate Luke Shaw is one of the other marginal calls, because has been receiving heaving backing to be the one to get the second left back spot ahead of Chelsea’s Ashley Cole. Leighton Baines is expected to get the starting role there. If Lambert, who was backed into odds on over the weekend makes the plane along with Shaw, then Southampton could have three players in the squad, with Adam Lallana looking a sure fire bet.

Celtic’s keeper Fraser Forster is at 8/15 to edge out John Ruddy for the third choice keeper spot at Brazil 2014, while experienced midfielder Michael Carrick and Frank Lampard are waiting to see if they have done enough to edge their way into the mix. It’s unlikely that Hodgson is going to throw any left-field wildcards into the mix. England remain 33/1 shots to win the World Cup 2014.
