FRIDAY sees a big night of international football and Paddy Power's Sebastian Bell has been looking at some of the games.

Here's his thoughts on matches involving the British teams and they may give some pointers before I put up my tips tomorrow.

He writes: With qualification sorted and a raft of injuries England boss Roy Hodgson is expected to go with an experimental side against Chile on Friday night but the home side are still 10-11 favourites at Wembley.

Hodgson needs to use these friendly games to blood some fresh talent but it may not make any difference-come June 2014. With temperatures set to be sky high in Brazil the England boss has said he thinks there is more chance of an African team winning the tournament than an European one – Paddy Power price an African side winning the World Cup, the first ever for the continent, at 40-1.

With skipper Steven Gerrard, Kyle Walker, Danny Welbeck, and Michael Carrick definitely out the England side could include the likes of Adam Lallana, Jordan Henderson, Jay Rodriguez and Kieran Gibbs. Hodgson’s side are 17-2 for a 2-0 win and 14-1 to win 3-0.

The visitors are 3-1 for the win with striker Alexis Sanchez stirring the pot ahead of the game by suggesting English players are “soft” – the Chilean hitman is 9-1 for the first goal with Wayne Rooney the favourite at 5-1. Frank Lampard looks set to captain the side on Friday and is 23-10 to score at anytime.

With World Cup places up for grabs the Hodgson will be looking for players to impress with the most focus potentially on the occupier of the number one shirt. Fraser Forster or John Ruddy are likely to get the nod ahead of Joe Hart on Friday.

The Man City keeper is currently not turning out for his club side and the odds on him to not be an Etihad player by the end of the January transfer window are 7-1.

A former England player John Terry is another player potentially on the way out of his club as his current contract runs down. Roberto Mancini is an admirer of the centre-back and Terry is at odds of 10-1 to move to Galatasaray by the end of the January transfer window.

In the other games on Friday, Ireland take on Latvia with their new coaching duo of Roy Keane and Martin O’Neill in place. The home side are 4-11 for the win with Latvia 9-1 and the draw at 7-2.

A well-organised and efficient 2-0 win looks likely at 5-1 with Robbie Keane 7-2 for the first goal.

Meanwhile, Scotland take on the USA in a big test for Gordon Strachan’s men. The Scots are 15-8 with the USA at 6-4 and the draw at 11-5.

A 1-1 tie would be a good result for Scotland against a side ranked 13th in the world and pays 5-1. The Scots have drafted in Ross McCormack, who scored four goals for Leeds last weekend, in place of the injured Jordan Rhodes and Watford winger Inechi Anya is a doubt.

Finally, Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland team travel to Turkey and are 8-1 to get a result with the home side 1-3.
