Kyle Walker’s injury has seen Ben White shorten from 9/4 into Evens to make Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the World Cup in Qatar.
The versatile Arsenal defender, signed for £50 million from Brighton last summer, is a centre-back by preference but has been playing right-back at Arsenal since the return of William Saliba.
A week ago, White could be backed at 9/4 to make England’s World Cup squad - a price which had already come in to a best price 15/8 before news broke of Walker’s groin injury.
Now into Evens (worst price 5/6), White still looks a good bet given his natural fit for the role Walker has occupied for England in recent major tournaments as a right sided centre-back in a three.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola today said that he “doesn’t know” whether Walker (out from 1/10 to a best price Evens) will be fit in time for November’s tournament. He picked up the injury in last Sunday’s Manchester derby and underwent successful surgery on his groin earlier today.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford (8/11) is the first of the four players we backed to make the England squad at odds against to have made the move into the wrong side of Evens.
After a disappointing campaign last time out, he has picked up with a WhoScored.com rating of 7.00 in 2022/23 and has seemingly replaced Cristiano Ronaldo as Erik ten Hag's preferred central striker.
