While it only took 80 seconds for Harry Kane to take his first chance for his country, football punters should recognise the value of  William Hill's Goal Scorer Second Chance for England’s international friendly against Italy on Tuesday.

First Goalscorer is one of the most popular pre-match betting markets and the fact that England will be lining up in Turin against one of the world’s most defensive sides, will not stop thousands of England fans backing a player to score the first goal.

Roy Hodgson is reveling in his selection dilemma with four red hot strikers vying for a place in England’s unstoppable forward line and Dean Sturridge is likely to ask more questions when fully recovered from his fitness problems.

Spurs sensation, Kane looks certain to start against Italy in midweek following news that Raheem Sterling and  Danny Welbeck have pulled out of the squad with injury and this could provide punters with a headache over which player to choose for First Goalscorer.

Wayne Rooney Go To Player To Score First Goal For England

Wayne Rooney has been the go to player for this market, England’s leading scorer is in a hurry to beat Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time record and helped punters cash in three times in five Euro 2016 qualifying games this term while also obliging in the friendly against Norway at the start of the season.

But who would bet against Kane the way his dream season is panning out? The 21-year-old certainly has the Midas touch at present, scoring with his third touch of the ball to justify the clamour for him to be given his chance of a full international cap.

This is where Goal Scorer Second Chance on William Hill comes into play.  Football punters can get up to £50 free bet if their first goalscorer selection fails to get the first goal but scores the second goal of the game. If it happens to your first player to score selection, William Hill will refund your losing stake with a free bet.

For all Italy’s frugal reputation, three of their last four games against England have finished 2-1, so taking out the insurance could prove worthwhile. The sides last met in the World Cup finals in Brazil where Roy Hodgson’s men were knocked out by Mario Balotelli’s 50th minute goal. Earlier, Dean Sturridge had equalised Claudio Marchisio’s opener and copped a free bet for his First Goalscorer backers.

Goal Scorer Second Chance is one of a trio of football offers available on William Hill, Acca Insurance provides a free bet refund if your six-fold or up loses out by one and Bore Draw refunds give free bets on losing correct score bets for matches that end 0-0.
