Danny Welbeck is 11.0 to finish as top England scorer

England go in to the tournament with the lowest expectation levels for many years but, in his debut piece for Betting.Betfair ahead of reporting from Brazil for us, Matt Stanger argues there may be some value in backing Hodgson's men for early success...

"It shouldn't be forgotten that Italy finished bottom of a group that contained New Zealand, Slovakia and Paraguay in 2010, while Uruguay required a play-off against Jordan to reach this summer's tournament. Meanwhile, England haven't lost a group stage match at the World Cup since a 2-1 defeat to Romania in 1998."

Back England to finish top of Group D at [3.45]
