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.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
