Bookies mark last cap with range of special markets
WAYNE ROONEY is 5/1 to score the winning goal for England in his international swansong.
Bookies www.SportNation.Bet have marked the occasion by offering a wide range of special bets for the game, ranging from the prospect of Rooney scoring a direct free kick at 5/1 all the way to the commentary team acknowledging the crowd booing the former captain at 66/1.
It’s just 2/1 Rooney provides an assist tonight, with the same price offered that he is both subbed on and off.
Those who think Rooney will be given the captain’s armband as he enters the pitch will be paid at just 1/3, as equally short odds suggest a lap of honour at the end of the game is just as likely.
Finally, anyone expecting a less savoury ending for Wazza can take a longshot punt on him getting his marching orders tonight at 150/1.
Georgia Wilson of www.SportNation.Bet: “The public will have eyes for one man only tonight and if Rooney marks the occasion with a goal, bookies will pay out millions. We’re offering as many special markets as possible to celebrate his last game in an England shirt and we’re sure punters will lap them up on their last chance.”
