Sportingbet preview - internationals

The Premier League season is put on hold this midweek as players head off on international duty but you can still back Spurs’ stars to do the business with Sportingbet.

Gareth Bale is expected to turn out as Wales take on Costa Rica in Gary Speed’s memorial match and is a tempting 2/1 to score at any time on an emotional occasion.

Meanwhile, Scott Parker is expected to line up for England vs the Netherland and Luka Modric will likely play for Croatia against Sweden, with Parker 10/1 to notch and his teammate even money to be on the winning side.

England are 33/20 against the Dutch but a squad thinned by injury could struggle against the World Cup finalists, who are 8/5 favourites even without Rafael van der Vaart. England have won their last three matches 1-0, however, including success over Spain and that correct score returns 6/1.

Wales are chalked up as 4/6 favourites to win in front of their home crowd, as are 6/5 Ireland as they take on the Czech Republic (9/4) with Scotland 13/5 on their travels to Slovenia (21/20). Northern Ireland complete the home nations’ matches by hosting Norway (5/4), but are 11/5 underdogs in Michael O’Neill’s first game in charge.
