Of course, it will not be easy for Capello to mastermind England’s first tournament triumph since 1966 – particularly when the competition includes reigning world and European champions Spain (11/4), in-form Germany (3/1) and World Cup finalists Holland (11/2).
England will also have to paper over the cracks caused by the loss of Rooney, whose sending off in the 2-2 draw against Montenegro last Friday means he is likely to miss the first two group games of next summer’s tournament.
However, England’s status as fourth-favourites – putting them ahead of the likes of France (11/1), Italy (11/1) and Portugal (14/1) – suggests they should still be considered contenders.
Furthermore, Capello’s determination to plan for life without Rooney in light of his unavailability means England should be well placed to cope in his absence.
And with the Italian accentuating the positives following the 2-2 draw – pointing to the emergence of Phil Jones and Kyle Walker as reasons for optimism – it could be an invigorated, youthful England which arrives in Poland and Ukraine.
This makes it a good time to take advantage of those market-leading odds on an England victory.
