Jack Wilshere has been tipped as a future Three Lions captain. The Arsenal midfielder received glowing praise as England beat Brazil for the first time in 23 years.
Paddy Power has Wilshere at odds of 8/15 to lead England out as captain in a future World Cup or European Championship match.
The game against Brazil saw Ashley Cole play his 100th game for England whilst Steven Gerrard got cap 101. Paddy Power has Wilshere at odds of 5/2 to join that illustrious club and get 100 caps or over for his country.
Wins for Wales and Scotland sparked renewed optimism for the nations to qualify for the World Cup in 2014 with both individually priced at 33/1 to make it to Brazil. Another strong performance from Ireland has led to their odds of qualification dropping to 9/2.
Despite Brazilian Neymar’s prediction that England have “no chance” of winning the World Cup in 2014 the odds on the Three Lions winning the tournament have shortened to 20/1 whereas odds of them winning the World Cup before the end of 2030 stand at 11/4.
