William Hill 11/4 enhanced odds on Sturridge to score and England to win
England are now running as favourites in the match outright for their second World cup 2014 game against Uruguay today. After a good, positive performance against Italy in their opener, a match which still ended in defeat for the Three Lions, they have been backed into favourites to beat Uruguay and keep their World Cup ambitions alive. This is a game which neither can afford to lose, but it is to Roy Hodgson’s credit that the Three Lions are now 23/20 favourites to take the win, because they had been underdogs for this match ahead of the tournament.
England’s chances were helped by how easily Uruguay fell apart in their opening match against Costa Rica. After Edinson Cavani had given them the lead from the spot, they couldn’t withstand the pressure that the Ticos put on them, crumbling away to a 3-1 defeat and being made to look very ordinary and defensively shaky in the process.
England’s quick attack could inflict much of the same damage on the slow and ponderous Uruguayan back line, which will be missing both Maxi Pereira and captain Diego Lugano. It is likely that Liverpool’s Luis suarez will get some game time, so that is one concern for the England back line, but Uruguay may rely on him and Cavani far too much. A two horse team perhaps?
Daniel Sturridge is in good goalscoring form for England, now with three goals in four matches for his country. Sturridge is trading as favourite in the anytime goalscorer market and looks confident enough and quick enough to be a handful for the Uruguay defence.
