Much to the Burnley faithful’s delight, Jay Rodriguez got his first England call up this week and will hope to make his first international appearance tomorrow night when Chile are the visitors to Wembley. The former Burnley man has been in sparkling form for Southampton this season and is on offer at 9/1 to open the scoring, but if you fancy him to find the net any time during the game, he is best priced at 10/3 with William Hill to do so. If punters fancy him to take his first international game by storm, he is available at 10/1 with Ladbrokes to be named man of the match.
