Republic of Ireland Odds Drift To Beat England

Republic of Ireland are friendless in the betting ahead of Thursday’s friendly clash with England after their preparation was hit by another positive COVID-19 test within the squad.

West Brom’s Callum Robinson is said to have no symptoms and be feeling well but will miss the trip as he enters a period of self-isolation ahead of the first meeting between England and Republic of Ireland in over five years.

There has been a prolific run of draws between the two nations, with all of their last five meetings going back to their World Cup 1990 clash ending level. That run is 15/4 from 9/2 to continue, but the hosts are shortening at 1/3 from 2/5 having won nine of their last ten matches at home.

A rocky start for Stephen Kenny in the Irish dugout means he has yet to oversee a victory in any of his first five games since stepping up from the Under 21s.

The Boys in Green have been eased to 10/1 from 8/1 to buck that trend with a victory at Wembley.

With striker Aaron Connolly joining the list of Irish absentees on Wednesday, punters have turned to on loan Celtic defender Shane Duffy as a likely goalscorer for the visitors and he is now 8/1 from 10/1 to bag his fifth international goal.

Jack Grealish and Declan Rice could well line up against the international side who they once represented and the pair are 7/4 and 7/1 to find the net respectively.
