Latest England News - Rooney bags brace in 3-1 win

A first-half header from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and a brace from Wayne Rooney after the break gave England a convincing 3-1 victory away to Scotland. It was The Three Lions' six successive win since returning from a disastrous World Cup, with the result ensuring that Roy Hodgson's men end 2014 on a high. England are next in action at home in a Euro 2016 Qualifier at home to Slovenia in March, which is followed by a friendly against Italy.

Euro 2016 Betting

The European Championships is always a massive betting tournament and the betting was bigger than ever in 2012. The hot favourites, Spain, were victorious yet again as they successfully defended their trophy and in the process won their third consecutive major tournament. Meanwhile England were typically knocked-out on penalties in the quarter-finals, but there were many positives to take from the tournament.

Euro 2016 will be held in France, with the tournament extended from 16 to 24 teams. England are competing in Group E alongside Switzerland, Lithuania, San Marino, Estonia and Slovenia, and should have few problems finishing at the top.
