Harry Kane is the odds-on favourite to captain England in their World Cup opener after Gareth Southgate revealed his 23-man squad on Wednesday.



Kane, who looks guaranteed to start England’s first game against Tunisia at 1/8, is fancied to be given the honour of leading his country out next month with Betway making him the 8/11 favourite to wear the captain’s armband ahead of Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Eric Dier (2/1).

Jordan Pickford at 1/3 is the favourite to start in goal for the first group game, while Gary Cahill is 8/11 to form a centre back partnership with Harry Maguire at 5/6.

Kyle Walker (1/8), Danny Rose (4/11) and Kieran Trippier (4/7) look nailed on to start alongside them in defence while Raheem Sterling (2/9) and Dele Alli (1/4) look set to complement Kane in attack.

“Harry Kane is one of the first names on Gareth Southgate’s team-sheet and he looks the obvious candidate at 8/11 to lead his country out in Russia next month,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“The Spurs forward heads the betting for the captain’s armband and he looks set to lead the line at 1/8 with Raheem Sterling at 2/9 and Dele Alli at 1/4.

“Southgate picked Jordan Pickford for the Holland friendly and at 1/3 we think he’ll stick with him for first game against Tunisia.

“In the defence, Kyle Walker (1/8), Danny Rose (4/11) and Kieran Tripper (4/7) look guaranteed to start, while it seems Gary Cahill at 8/11 and Harry Maguire at 5/6 will form the centre back pairing.”
