IT's a big day for Wayne Rooney who will be honoured with his 100th England cap in the qualifier against Slovenia.

Daniel Sturridge is again missing for England so skipper Rooney has a great chance of breaking the deadlock at 18-5 with McBookie and BetVictor. The Man Utd star is 11-10 at bet365 to net at any time.

Three wins from three mean England can already start looking forward to the Euro 2016 finals – and boss Roy Hodgson will be hoping for better show in France than he saw in Brazil.

All of those results in Group E have been achieved to nil and that could be the outcome again when Slovenia visit Wembley. England haven't conceded a goal in five games since crashing out of the World Cup to Uruguay but only once have they netted more than two – and that was a 5-0 stroll against sorry San Marino.

Only one side has netted in Slovenia's last six games so no to both to score should come in but pays just 1-2 at Paddy Power. England are no bigger than 1-3 with William Hill and others so consider win to nil at 5-6 at Ladbrokes.

Slovenia have beaten Switzerland and Lithuania in their last two so won't roll over and I expect a 1-0 or 2-0 home success.

Only one of Slovenia's last 12 games has gone over 2.5 goals so back under at 4-5 with Ladbrokes.

If you believe England will take time to get going try England's first goal to arrive after 31 minutes at 11-10 with William Hill.

Elsewhere today it's mostly short-priced favourites against underdogs such as Spain v Belarus, Ukraine at Luxembourg, Moldova v Liechenstein, Estonia at San Marino and Switzerland v Lithuania and finding value from those matches isn't easy.

One game that catches the eye is Austria v Bosnia with the visitors' coach Fabio Capello travelling to Vienna without assistants Christian Panucci and Massimo Neri. All three haven't been paid since June and Russian football chiefs say they can't afford the massive salaries.

Austria are in good form and could take advantage if Capello isn't fully focused. The Group G leaders are a best 15-8 at boylesports.

    The Russians shouldn’t have spent all their money bribing officials to buy a World Cup and an Olympics should they! :-)

    Not a brilliant price but England RT2 goals @ 4/6. Rooney’s 100th cap so like Mr F says he’ll be looking to make it his show. Slovenia has conceded two or more in 3/5 away games losing 4/5 to nil. Think England can easily get two here, whether they’ll get more than that I’m not so sure.

    It will be interesting to see if Berahino starts given the opposition and with Welbeck not particularly firing too well in the league? If he does, I’ll be backing him to score on his Wembley debut and Rooney on his 100th cap both anytime doubled @ 10/3 on WillHill. Check team news on that tho. You can back the Rooney wincast @ 6/4.

    Another single I’ll be having a go on the Euro’s is Slovakia over 1.5 goals @ 13/10. Macedonia have conceded two or more in 3/4 home games, conceding twice against Luxembourg in their only home game of the competition. The Slovaks have scored two or more in 4/6 away games that stretches back a year. They scored three against Belarus who currently sit above Luxembourg on goal difference. Marek Hamsik has scored twice in Belarus and you can back the captain to net @ 7/4 anytime or the wincast @ 11/4.
