England vs Scotland Betting Tips: Sterling to punish blunt Tartan Army at Wembley
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having netted the winner against Croatia, Al Hain-Cole expects the Man City star to prove the pick of the Three Lions' many potential match-winners
Undone by their lack of a clinical finisher against the Czech Republic, Scotland could be in for more frustration when they take on England at Wembley in Friday’s Euro 2020 showdown.
Steve Clarke’s men failed to put away a number of presentable chances in their opener, while their opponents benefitted from a Patrik Schick masterclass in front of goal.
Lyndon Dykes was the main culprit in terms of spurned opportunities, and the Queen’s Park Rangers striker remains a lengthy 14/1 (15.00) with bet365 to score first or 5/1 (6.00) to score anytime.
Che Adams was surprisingly omitted from the starting line-up at Hampden Park but is probably his side’s best anytime bet at 15/4 (4.75) after looking lively following his half-time introduction.
John McGinn is the only Tartan Army squad member to have hit double figures in international football but is a 15/2 (8.50) long shot to add to his 10 senior goals with perhaps the biggest of the lot against the old enemy.
In contrast to his opposite number, Gareth Southgate has so many match winners at his disposal that Jadon Sancho was not even included in the matchday squad in the 1-0 opening win over Croatia.
Raheem Sterling scored the winner in that game with his 14th goal in 17 appearances for the Three Lions, making him a strong option at 11/2 (6.50) first goalscorer or 7/4 (2.75) anytime odds.

Of course, Harry Kane’s international record of 34 goals in just 55 matches underlines the threat he carries in every game for his country, although 8/11 (1.73) anytime odds may not hold as much appeal as Sterling’s more generous price.
Marcus Rashford started on the bench against Croatia, having finished the club season late due to Manchester United’s Europa League final appearance and struggled for fitness towards the end of the campaign.
Nevertheless, he remains a strong bet at 7/4 (2.75) anytime after getting on target in five of his last seven appearances for the national team.
