  • Daniel Sturridge looks a good bet to be Top England Goalscorer at the World Cup ahead of market leader Wayne Rooney.

    Wayne Rooney may have netted seven times in qualifying for Brazil 2014, but his performances at the last two World Cups somewhat temper the enthusiasm. England's number 10 is yet to find the back of the net at the finals and while that statistic is surely set to change in Brazil, odds of around 5/2 make little appeal. While still a good finisher, Rooney's aggression and work rate may see him operating in a deeper role to Sturridge, particularly in the games against Italy and Uruguay when England will be defending as a unit.

    Sturridge may be relatively new to the England set-up, but having scored 21 goals for Liverpool this season has to be of interest from a punting perspective. He bagged a couple of goals in qualification, scored the decisive goal in England's 1-0 win against Denmark earlier this year and has sufficient technique to match his blistering pace. He also possesses a strikers instinct in that he is not shy of having a shot, even from a tight angle when perhaps setting up a teammate would seem more obvious. This can of course be frustrating at times, but nonetheless Sturridge's preference for scoring over assisting enhances his claims.

    Daniel Sturridge can be backed at odds of 3/1 with a number of bookmakers to be England's Top Scorer and he is likely to be deployed in a more advanced role to Wayne Rooney where his clinical finishing can be seen to good effect.
