Top scorer at the World Cup this summer, Harry Kane will be aiming to get his Nations League campaign off to a scoring start when England take on Spain on Saturday.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has hit the net 14 times in his last 15 international appearances, and is William Hill’s 10/3 (4.33) favourite to maintain that prolific streak by opening the scoring at Wembley.

Having bucked his usual trend of starting the season slowly by already scoring in two of his four club matches so far, Kane certainly represents solid value at 6/5 (2.20) to at least get on target anytime here.

Potentially in line for a start with Raheem Sterling out through injury, Marcus Rashford is on offer at 3/1 (4.00) to provide a reminder of his talents by grabbing a fourth senior international goal.

However, Gareth Southgate could instead move Jesse Lingard or Dele Alli into a more advanced position, and they are available at 4/1 (5.00) or 9/2 (5.50) respectively to prove their credentials in that role by finding the net.

At the other end of the pitch, Diego Costa’s absence could give Alvaro Morata a chance for a fresh start under new manager Luis Enrique after he missed out on a place in the World Cup squad.

Despite his poor club form, the Chelsea striker has actually struck five goals in his last six international appearances, and is available at 5/1 (6.00) to break the deadlock or 15/8 (2.88) to fire anytime.

Rivalling Morata for a place up front, Rodrigo Moreno can also be backed at 15/8 (2.88) to stake his own claim with a third international goal.

However, Enrique is also likely to put Isco and Marco Asensio in advanced position on the wings, and they are priced at 3/1 (4.00) and 16/5 (4.20) respectively to demonstrate their own prowess in front of goal at Wembley.
