thumbnail Hello,

The Liverpool striker has been in irrepressible club form recently and Al Hain-Cole expects him to carry that onto the international stage in a high-scoring clash

England will be hoping to bounce back from two consecutive friendly defeats when they welcome Denmark to Wembley on Wednesday, in their final game before Roy Hodgson announces his preliminary World Cup squad.

Both Chile and Germany left London with wins last November, but the Three Lions are 8/13 (1.62) favourites with bet365 to get back to winning ways against Morten Olsen's men.

The Danisch coach oversaw a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford on his last visit to this country back in 2003 and is available at 9/2 (5.50) to mastermind another success 11 years on.

There have been no draws in any of the last five meetings between the sides, but you can get odds of 14/5 (3.80) on them cancelling each other out.

Having seen his side fail to score against both Chile and Germany, England boss Roy Hodgson will have been delighted to see Daniel Sturridge hit 10 goals in his 10 games for Liverpool since returning from an injury aggravated during the last international break.

With a fully-fit Sturridge playing alongside a Wayne Rooney with 10 goals in his last 14 international appearances and supported by the in-form Steven Gerrard and Adam Lallana, the hosts should be confident of ending their barren run against a defence that conceded three to both Macedonia and Poland in their most recent friendlies on the road.

However, with 15 goals in their last six games themselves, the Red and White are not to be taken lightly themselves, meaning odds of 11/10 (2.10) seem extremely generous on over 2.5 goals being scored.

That bet would have paid out in seven of Denmark’s last eight, as well as each of the last four encounters between these teams.

Considering his impeccable recent form in front of goal, odds of 15/8 (2.88) are surely also too good to miss on Sturridge grabbing his third international goal on just his fifth start.
