England vs Ghana betting
England vs Ghana odds
England will face world cup quarter-finalist Ghana at Wembley on Tuesday after completing a solid 2-0 victory over Wales at the weekend. Since that win 5 of that team have been released from the squad for the midweek friendly with John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson and Wayne Rooney returning to their respective clubs, while Kyle Walker has dropped out through injury. Their opponents Ghana continued their African Cup of Nations qualification at the weekend with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Congo to take themselves top of group I.
England played well in Wales on Saturday as goals from Frank Lampard and Darren Bent secured a good win for a new look team. Capello opted for a 4-3-3 system with a front 3 of Rooney, Young and Bent looking very dangerous. Although the personal may chance, with Capello admitting he could change his entire starting 11, it looks as though the formation may continue for the friendly on Tuesday. Despite this change in personnel England are still firm favourites and best priced at 1.62 with Bet365 to claim victory on the night. Young midfielder Jack Wilshere put in another good performance on Saturday and the Arsenal player is a good price at 17.0 with Stan James to open the scoring. Darren Bent scored his third goal in 3 games for England and the striker is looking good at 2.5 with William Hill to score again at any time. This game could be a lot more difficult for England than at the weekend and so a 2-1 home win is showing nicely at 9.0 with Skybet.
Ghana will be looking towards the game on Tuesday with plenty of confidence as England will be without most of their top names and they are a team with plenty of technical ability. They lost out only on penalties in the quarter finals of the World Cup last summer and the Black Stars have risen to 16th in the FIFA world rankings. They have several players from top European Clubs with Asamoah Gyan and Andre Ayew up front particularly dangerous. Sunderland fans will know all about Gyan but Ayew has scored 7 goals for Marseille this season and is looking good at 6.0 with Sportingbet to score at any time. Finally, it is looking like Ghana may well get on the score sheet and so Ghana to score first is most definitely worth a look at 3.4 with Bwin.

Jack Wilshere first goal scorer – 17.0 Stan James
