I WONDER if Jack Butland will be watching Friday's Euro 2012 draw and thinking: I coud be playing there in the summer.

If your first reaction is Jack Who? that's understandable because it was the same as mine when I saw the little-known player linked with call-up.

Bet365 reckon the Cheltenham star has half a chance and make him 12-1 to make it.

Of course, he'd have to win a transfer-window January move to the Premier League and bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: “Fans from outside the Premier League may not know too much about Jack Butland but having witnessed his performances first hand at Cheltenham this season – along with a whole host of top-flight scouts – I wouldn’t want to offer a big price in a department short on quality behind Joe Hart.”

Bet365 go 4-1 about Andy Carroll making the plane, 9-2 for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and
8-1 for Joe Cole to be recalled.

Darren Bent is 9-2 to be England's top scorer ahead of 6-1 Ashley Young and 13-2 Danny Welbeck.

Wayne Rooney, who is suspended for the group games unless he wins an appeal, is 16-1.

A few weeks ago I told you most bookies were offering 53-1 if you could pick England's group. The price is still available while bet365 on 14-5 on naming one opponent.

England are 4-6 with bet365 to go further in the tournament than Ireland (4-1) with the tie 9-4. It's 9-4 with bet365 that England and Ireland meet at any time.

Pot 1 – Poland, Ukraine, Spain, Holland.

Pot 2 – Germany, Italy, England, Russia.

Pot 3 – Greece, Portugal, Croatia, Sweden.

Pot 4 – France, Denmark, Czech Rep, Rep Ireland.

      Yeah, let’s hope they land the group of death. There’s always one.

    • Mr Fixit 13 years ago

      Steven, pretty tough draw for England. Ukraine will raise game as hosts, France are improving and their record against Sweden is poor. And what about Ireland – Spain, Italy and Croatia. Wow!
