Nobody was more shocked than Romelu Lukaku when Roberto Martinez was named manager of Belgium given his reaction when it was announced at Goodison Park during pre-season.
As sceptical as people are about Martinez, having been sacked by Everton and then being named boss of the second highest ranked team in the world, he couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.
It would be a big shock if Martinez starts off with a defeat to Cyprus although Belgium put in a dismal performance the last time the two met in a European qualifier 12 months ago as the Belgians snatched a late 1-0 win.
The Red Devils should be getting the job done by half-time and are 4/5 for a double header in the HT/FT market.
France travel to Belarus and it’s likely to be a free-for-all in front of goal. Les Bleus will be buoyed by their effort in the Euros, despite being beaten finalists, after seeing off Italy 3-1 in a friendly away from home last week. Antoine Griezmann looks a lucrative 3/1 shot to bag a brace.
England Under-21s also resume their qualifying campaign for the European Championship against Norway on Tuesday evening.
Marcus Rashford is set to make his first appearance for the Young Lions following his exploits at Euro 2016. He will likely be given plenty of responsibility from boss Gareth Southgate and is a decent price of 3/1 to be the first goalscorer.
