England’s Women are firmly in the mix to win the World Cup in France, but can Phil Neville and his Lionesses deliver?
England have qualified for the World Cup four times – and they have never failed to reach the knockout stages when they do, reaching the quarter-finals in 1995, 2007, and 2011, and the semi-finals in 2015 when they finished third.
Neville’s side come into the tournament having won the highly acclaimed SheBelieves Cup for the first time this year, and come into the tournament ranked third in the world.
|England’s World Cup Record|
|China 1991||Did not qualify|
|United States 1999||Did not qualify|
|United States 2003||Did not qualify|
|Canada 2015||Third place|
However, despite England’s chances – Bookmakers firmly believe that defending champions United States are firm favourites at 7/2 for the title – which would be their fourth.
Hosts France are second favourites at 10/3, and must be respected given the strength of their domestic league – which includes Lyon, who are have won a record four Champions League titles in succession.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “England are third favourites at the moment, but those odds might not last long. This tournament could really capture the imagination of the public with it being live on the BBC, and if Phil Neville’s side impress early on – they will likely see a lot of money come, and quickly.”
United States 7/2
