England eye Nations League prize

June 4th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

England have the chance to claim their first major trophy in half a century as they look to claim the Nations League this week.

The Nations League is a new competition which is due to take take place every two years, and will play a part in seeding teams ahead of the following European Championship, and also looks to eradicate meaningless friendlies.

England won their group in impressive fashion getting the better of Spain and World Cup finalists Croatia – who beat Gareth Southgate’s men in Russia.

Joining the Three Lions are Portugal – who are hosting the finals, Switzerland and Holland – who provide the semi-final opposition for England.

Favourites to take the title are European champions Portugal, who not only have Cristiano Ronaldo – but also Joao Felix, regarded as one of the best young players in world football. They also have four players from Premier League side Wolves.

Southgate’s side are rated as second favourites at around 2/1, and they have named a strong squad – indeed the vast majority were part of the party that made it to the World Cup semi-finals last summer.

Holland are 10/3 just behind England. The Dutch have a squad that has been bolstered by the form of the brilliant Ajax side that made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League, including star duo Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.

The outsiders are considered to be Switzerland and are 15/2 to take the title, although they did overcome Belgium to reach this stage.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Could this be England’s first major prize since 1966? Gareth Southgate came as close as anyone only last summer when they went out in the semi-finals last summer, but they are just 2/1 to return to home from Portugal with silverware.”
