Lionesses in good shape for Women’s World Cup

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

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
World Cup Result
China 1991 Did not qualify
Sweden 1995 Quarter-finals
United States 1999 Did not qualify
United States 2003 Did not qualify
China 2007 Quarter-finals
Germany 2011 Quarter-finals
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.”

Selected odds:

United States 7/2
France 10/3
England 9/2
Germany 11/2
Australia 12/1
Japan 12/1
Netherlands 16/1
Brazil 20/1
Spain 22/1
Sweden 25/1
Scotland 100/1
