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.
