Competition: England
Market: Rooney to be next England captain
Odds: 1/3 @ William Hill

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney is in line to be the next England captain after Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from international duty.

Rooney does have competition from Gary Cahill and Joe Hart, who are the next most experienced players who are leaders on the pitch, but Rooney had been touted as England’s next skipper for a while.

He had lukewarm World Cup performances, but still looks important to England’s future success, such are the amount of top players having resigned from duty in the last couple of years.

The Three Lions’ ‘golden generation’ are slowly all leaving England due to their advancing ages, and Rooney is now the only one left of the original gang. As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 1/3 for the 28-year-old to be England’s next captain, which is expected to be announced soon.

With a goal and an assist in this summer’s World Cup, of which England scored just two goals, Rooney did play his part for his country.
