With Harry Kane out injured, England will be forced to look elsewhere for firepower when Brazil visit Wembley for Tuesday’s friendly clash.
Only the Tottenham striker has found the net in the last three matches for the Three Lions, who were held to a blank by Germany in his absence last time out.
In fact, Jamie Vardy is favourite with Paddy Power to open the scoring for Gareth Southgate’s men at relatively long 15/2 (8.50) odds, or 5/2 (3.50) anytime, despite hitting the net just twice in his last 12 international appearances.
Given his debut in the draw with Germany, Tammy Abraham can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to open his account at senior international level in high profile circumstances.
As the last player other than Kane to get on the scoresheet for England, Marcus Rashford may offer better value at 11/4 (3.75) to grab the headlines here.
However, the most attractive bets are more likely to be found at the other end of the pitch, where the Selecao boast a number of in-form attacking talents.
Having scored three times in his last two appearances for Tite’s side to make it eight goals in 11 internationals, odds of 7/5 (2.40) look too good to pass up on Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus hitting the back of the net in his adopted homeland.
Similarly, Philippe Coutinho can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) to maintain the prolific form that has seen him strike in four of his last six matches for Liverpool with a goal in London.
