Ahead of the qualifying Group F match-up, punters can back Wayne Rooney to dispatch anytime in an England victory over Slovakia at a promising 4/1 matchday special (£20 max stake), as the Three Lions look to roar to success on their travels.

The Three Lions are entering a new era since Allardyce took over from former boss Roy Hodgson and, after a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign in France, they will be aiming to bounce back strongly.

So read on to see why it’s worth backing Rooney to score and England win during this fine Sunday.

Allardyce to make strong start

Former West Ham United and Sunderland boss Allardyce had long been desiring his dream job of managing England and, now he has the role, he will look to make a big impact on his first match in charge against Slovakia.

There weren’t as many surprises as expected in his the new coach’s squad, with West Ham’s Michel Antonio being the only fresh face, though the likes of captain Wayne Rooney and Tottenham sharpshooter Harry Kane will be raring to go.

England’s all-time marksman Rooney bagged a brace against his nation’s opening qualifying opponents back in 2009, and the Three Lions have an encouraging fixture history, having never lost in four previous meetings.

So, ahead of England’s trip to Slovakia, make sure not to miss out on this tasty matchday special of 4/1 for the Three Lions to enjoy a successful visit to the Stadion Antona Malatinskeho in Slovakia.
