The midfielder volleyed home the winning goal in the second half to give England a 2-1 victory over the hosts of next summer's finals.

Sky Bet duly went back up with their 'to make the squad' prices - it will be money back if England do not qualify.

With question marks surrounding Lampard's future, they initially had the 34-year-old up at 9/2. He is set to leave Chelsea in the summer and a move to the American Major League Soccer has been mooted - one which could damage his chances of playing at Brazil 2014.

However, that price was soon backed into just 6/4.

Phil Jagielka is another who stands out as a big price - the Everton defender is 13/8 with Sky Bet to make the final 23-man cut despite being a regular in the squad under Roy Hodgson.

In total, the Leeds-based firm have 22 players rated odds-on chances to go to Brazil.

Keeper Joe Hart is rated most likely to make the trip, he's 1/66. Of the outfield players, Wayne Rooney, who also scored against the Brazilians, is most likely to go. He's a 1/50 shot.

On Sky Bet's prices, the following men would make the squad:

Hart, Butland, Carson, Cole, Baines, Gibbs, Walker, Johnson, Smalling, Jones, Cahill, Lescott, Richards or Cleverley, Wilshere, Gerrard, Carrick, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sterling, Young, Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge

The biggest area of doubt would appear to be the forward line with only three out-and-out strikers in the above 'squad'.

While Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling could all play up front, it is interesting to see Jermain Defoe and Andy Carroll are both rated 6/4 chances to make the squad.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
