HODGSON ODDS ON TO BOSS OLYMPIC FOOTBALL TEAM

William Hill have installed Fulham boss Roy Hodgson as 8/15 favourite to manage the GB team for the 2012 Olympics. ‘Few could argue that Hodgson has done a tremendous job at Fulham, but there are a few other contenders with strong claims, too, and despite cliams that Hodgson will be offered the role it may be far from a fait accompli as yet’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill:Who Will Manage 2021 Olympic Football Team ?
Roy Hodgson 8/15
Stuart Pearce 9/4
Alex Ferguson 14/1
Fabio Capello 16/1

16/5 ALL FOUR SEEDS TO MAKE WORLD CUP FINALS

William Hill are offering 16/5 that all four seeded countries involved in the play offs – Greece, France, Russia and Portugal – will make it through to the Finals, and 125/1 that none of them will do so.
Hills….Play offs- to qualify….. 4/6 Ukraine v 11/10 Greece; 2/9 Portugal v 7/2 Bosnia; 1/4 Russia v 11/4 Slovenia; 2/7 France v 5/2 Rep Ire
20/1 ENGLAND – BRAZIL IS WORLD CUP FINAL DRESS REHEARSAL!

William Hill are offering 20/1 that England and Brazil, who play a weekend friendly, will meet again in the World Cup Final – and 3/1 that the two take each other on at any stage of the tournament. ‘England go into this match on good terms with themselves and as one of the countries qualifying in style for the final stages, so speculation about an England- Brazil Final may not be regarded as entirely unhinged!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, Hills still make Brazil 23/20 favourites to win the game, with England 2/1 and the draw 21/10. Brazil are Evens with Hills to go further than England in the World Cup, with Capello’s side 11/8 to do vice versa, and 4/1that both will be eliminated at the same stage. (3rd place play off to count if relevant).
TO WIN WORLD CUP: 9/2 Brazil and Spain; 6/1 England; 7/1 Argentina; 12/1 Germany; 14/1 Holland; Italy; 16/1 Portugal; 20/1 France; 25/1 Russia; 33/1 Ivory Coast.

IS BECKS NO-HOPES TO BEAT SHILTS?

DAVID BECKHAM’s absence from the squad for the Brazil game is a blow to his chances of ovrtaking Peter Shilton’s record number of caps, and William Hill have pushed him out from 3/1 to 5/1 as a consequence. ‘He now has virtually no chance of catching Shilton during the World Cup, and his best hope may be to get so close that the FA take pity on him and organise a series of friendlies to take him past Shilts. Failing that, if he does play well during the World Cup, Capello may keep him involved for the Euro qualification campaign – always assuming that the boss is still there after the World Cup’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
