Kane 16-1 to outscore illustrious rivals

HARRY KANE missed out on a hat-trick of Premier League Golden Boots, pipped by Liverpool's Mo Salah, but the Tottenham striker is 16-1 to be the leading goalscorer at the World Cup.

Kane, 4-1 to score two or more goals against Nigeria on Saturday night, is in illustrious company in the betting with only Lionel Messi, Neymar, Antoine Griezmann and Cristiano Ronaldo shorter than him to top the scoring chart in Russia.

The Spurs man is a predictably hot favourite at 5-4 to be England's top scorer at the finals with Raheem Sterling (7-1) and 8-1 chances Dele Alli and Jamie Vardy the only other players at single-figure prices.

Wembley visitors Nigeria are in a tricky Group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland. The Super Eagles are 11-1 to win the section and 11-4 to qualify for the last 16.

Mauricio Pochettino remains a solid favourite to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid and the Tottenham manager, who signed a new contract at Spurs last week, is no bigger than 2-1 for the job.
Arsene Wenger, a free agent after leaving Arsenal, is 4-1 second-favourites with former Real midfielder Guti 6-1 and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte 8-1.

Betway make Real 8-11 to sign goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from Courtois this summer.

The Belgian cat is 5-4 to remain at Stamford Bridge next season, 7-1 for a return to Atletico Madrid, and 9-1 to move to Liverpool.
