Some fans feared that England would become even more boring to watch with an Italian in charge, but there has already been a 5-1, a 4-1 and a 3-0. Here’s why Saturday’s friendly with the Slovaks should also feature over 2.5 goals, which is 5/6 with Sky Bet:

» Seven consecutive Slovakia matches have contained at least three goals, while four of the last five have had over 3.5, which is available at 7/4 with Paddy Power.

» Eight of England’s last nine home games have featured more than 2.5 goals.

» England and Slovakia met twice in Euro 2004 Qualifying and both meetings finished 2-1 in England’s favour – 11.0 on Betfair.

Any other business

» England have scored precisely two goals in four of their last five home games and they haven’t failed to score in ten matches at the new Wembley.

» The last two England games at Wembley have been level at half-time. Ladbrokes offer 7/2 on the two teams being tied at the interval and England winning at full-time.

    Dear Signore Capello,

    I know it’s friendly, but you’re being a bit too liberal with substitutions in this first half.
