JOLEON LESCOTT is odds-on to start England's Euro 2012 opener against France after Gary Cahill was forced to pull out of the squad.
Man City defender Lescott is 1-10 with Ladbrokes to partner John Terry (1-100) in central defence after Cahill suffered a double jaw fracture against Belgium.
Cahill's shock replacement Martin Kelly is 33-1 to face the French while Joe Hart, Ashley Cole, and captain Steven Gerrard look dead certs at 1-100.
Ashley Young (1-50), Glen Johnson (1-33), Scott Parker (1-25), James Milner (1-4), Theo Walcott (4-7) and Danny Welbeck (4-7) are favoured to join the starting XI.
Andy Carroll's chalked up at 5-4, followed closely by Stewart Downing (2-1) and Phil Jones (5-2) in the betting.
Ladbrokes spokesperson Jessica Bridge said: “Things are going from bad to worse for Roy Hodgson and the tournament's not even started yet. His selections are starting to look dubious and now he just needs to hope and pray no more of his players are forced out.”
