JAMES STILL FAVOURITE TO START IN GOAL
DAVID JAMES is 4/6 favourite with William Hill to start the game against USA in goal for England. Hills make Robert Green 7/4 with Joe Hart 5/1 outsider. ‘Capello plays his cards so close to his chest that noone can predict with certaintly which of the three keepers will get the nod to start the opening game.’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.’The keeper the punters have wanted to back recently has been Rob Green, who at one stage drifted out to 11/2.’

ASHLEY COLE AND JOHN TERRY JOINT FAVS TO PLAY MOST MINUTES FOR ENGLAND
William Hill have opened a book on which player will rack up the greatest number of minutes on the pitch for England during the World Cup, and make Ashley Cole and John Terry 9/2 joint favourites. ‘Cole and Terry are the obvious front runners but tactical switches, injuries and substitutions can all play their part in making this an open market’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
