On the back of the news that Wayne Rooney has received a three match ban from UEFA, William Hill have shunted Englands odds of winning Euro 2012 out by two points from 9/1 to 11/1. He is 14/1 to receive a red card at the tournament.
The increase in odds reflects the fact that Rooney has to be considered the only real world class striker in Capellos armoury, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Wayne Rooney has been pushed out from 9/2 second favourite to 11/2 fourth favourite to be top scorer for England at the tournament behind Darren Bent (7/2), Andy Carroll (9/2) and Steven Gerrard (5/1).
England are 4/7 to qualify from their group but 5/4 to fail to make it to the quarter finals. Rooney is 2/1 to fail to start an England Euro 2012 game (4/11 to start at least one match).
