Harry Kane Is Firm Favourite To Be Top England Goalscorer At The World Cup

An England player hasn't scored more than one goal at the finals of a major tournament since Steven Gerrard scored a mighty two at the 2006 World Cup, while you have to go all the way back to Euro 2004 for when an England player last scored more than two - a fledgling Wayne Rooney notched four. Can Harry Kane rectify those woeful returns in Russia this summer? We take a look at the Top England World Cup Goalscorer Odds...

Top England Scorer Betting Odds

It is no surprise to see that Harry Kane is a 5/4 favourite to be England's top scorer and recent history has shown that he would probably only need to score a couple of goals to take that particular award. The Tottenham striker has been named captain of the England team and he has a fine scoring record at international level, notching 12 goals in 23 appearances prior to the Nigeria friendly.

Kane has scored seven in his last six and he will be desperate to notch his maiden goal at a major tournament after going goalless at Euro 2016, albeit his cause wasn't helped by the bizarre decision to put him on corner duties!

Kane is a worthy favourite in this particular market but his price is very short and plenty will be tempted by the odds on offer for several other players.

Raheem Sterling (7/1) notched 23 goals for Manchester City in all competitions last term but has scored just two in 37 for England. He has comes on leaps and bounds in recent times though and he is likely to be his country's talisman in Russia, where he looks to be the value bet to be top scorer. He is guaranteed to start matches, he is the creative outlet for the team and he has been a man reborn in recent times.

Meanwhile, Dele Alli (8/1) has managed a paltry two in 23 international appearances.

Jamie Vardy was superb for Leicester last term, scoring 20 league goals, and he has now scored 57 goals in the last three top-flight campaigns. It is worth noting that five of Vardy's seven goals at international level have come in friendlies and he hasn't played a full 90 minutes for England since the 0-0 draw with Slovakia at Euro 2016.

The Long Shots In The England Top Goalscorer Betting

Marcus Rashford heads to the World Cup off the back of a difficult summer with Manchester United but he will be keen to impress and he is a tempting 10/1 to be top scorer with Ladbrokes, with the forward bidding to add to his tally of two goals in 17 internationals.

Rashford's teammate, Jese Lingard, has emerged as an integral part of Gareth Southgate's plans and is 12/1, while Danny Welbeck is one of Southgate's most trusted lieutenants.

Welbeck managed a paltry five league goals during an injury ravaged campaign with Arsenal but his record at international is actually very decent. The 27-year-old has scored 15 goals in 37 appearances for England since his debut under Fabio Capello and it is worth noting that three of those have come in friendlies, with his record in competitive matches an impressive 12 in 22.

The big problem for Welbeck has been maintaining fitness as he has missed 27 England matches through injury but he could prove to be an ideal player to come on from the bench. With group games against minnows like Panama and Tunisia to come, it might be up to Welbeck to come on and stretch tired opposition. With that in mind, the 16/1 for Welbeck to be top England scorer (Bet 365) might be worth a punt in what has proven to be a very competitive (or should that be uncompetitive?) market in recent times.
