A largely experimental England side performed well for Fabio Capello, but William Hill think that the changes will be rung when the side steps out for their opener at the European Championships. Hills offer 2/1 that just three of the starting XI vs Sweden start Englands first game in Poland and the Ukraine, with four the same price.
The defence was well marshalled by John Terry and Gary Cahill and Hills offer 13/2 that this pairing start Englands first Euros game although the most likely seems to be John Terry with either Lescott or Jagielka (both 9/4). It would appear that the seemingly unbreakable partnership of Terry and Ferdinand has reached its end, with Hills making them 10/1 to line up side by side for Englands first Euros match.
Cahill and Terry played well together but we think that Jagielka or Lescott may just get the nod ahead of Cahill to line up next to the captain, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
England have secured two wins in two home friendlies and are due to play Holland at the start of next year and Hills make England slight favourites at 13/10 to win the match, with Holland13/8 and the draw 11/10.
England vs Holland: 13/10 England; 13/8 Holland; 11/5 Draw
