England v Ghana betting odds

By | 28th March 2011

England host World Cup finalists Ghana at Wembley stadium this Tuesday evening. Fabio Capello has stated that he will use this game to utilize his squad, but nevertheless it promises to be an intriguing match-up.

John Terry, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole, and Michael Dawson have all been released from the England squad following Saturday’s comfortable 2-0 victory over Wales. As a result, Gareth Barry will captain the side from the center of midfield.

Asamoah Gyan returns to the Ghana team as one of five English-based players in the squad. Fellow Sunderland players Sulley Muntari and John Mensah, along with Blackpool goalkeeper Richard Kingson and Fulham defender John Paintsil, are all expected to feature.

The Black Stars are hoping to become the first African team to ever defeat England in what will be the first meeting between the two teams; an accomplishment that they are priced at betting odds of 9/2 to achieve.

Home advantage for England makes them the odds-on 8/11 betting favourites, but given Capello is expected to make so many changes that is a bet that few will find appealing.

The England manager stated on Monday that Liverpool striker Andy Carroll would start the game up front while defenders Gary Cahill, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka will also be named in the starting eleven.

Carroll is quoted at odds of 5/1 to get the first goal of the game and 6/4 to score at anytime. Captain Barry is 22/1 to break the deadlock at Wembley.

Although this is a game that the England management will see as an opportunity to trial new personnel and tactics, for the African side it is a game that they will be fully committed to winning.
