11/4 ROONEY TO GET INCREASED EURO BAN
William Hill offer 11/4 that Wayne Rooneys one match Euro 2012 finals suspension will be increased, and 1/ 4 that it will remain as it is. Rooneys hopes of keeping the ban at one match appear to be boosted by the referees comments that he accepted his sending off without protest, and it is in Englands best interests that that is the case said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
With the possibility of an increased ban Hills have lengthened their odds for Rooney to go straight back into the starting line up for the next game for which he is eligible from 2/ 5 to 1/ 2, and have shortened the odds that he will not, from 7/4 to 6/4. The more games he misses the less likely he is to come straight back in, particularly if the side does well in his absence said Sharpe.
**WAYNE ROONEY has been lengthened from 7/2 favourite to 9/2 second favourite to be Englan’s top scorer at the Euro 2012 Finals after his sending off means he will miss at least one game. Hills now make Darren Bent 4/1 favourite and also offer 6 Carroll; 7 Gerrard; 8 Walcott; Young; 9 Welbeck; 10 Defoe. Others on request.
WAYNE ROONEY IS 10/1 favourite with William Hill to be the NEXT England player sent off. ‘Rooney’s suspect temperament is always likely to let him down at crucial moments’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
