Joint second-favourites England have Bookies worried

England fans are certainly starting to believe they can do something special at the World Cup finals, as are the Bookmakers.

The Three Lions are now joint second-favourites, something they have not been for nearly 30 years.

Not since Italy 1990 were England regarded as such threats to land the biggest prize in football.

But with previous favourites Spain going out over the weekend, and England’s side of the draw opening up further – Gareth Southgate’s men are now widely considered joint second favourites.

“Bookmakers have France and Brazil as joint favourites at the moment, and they could very well meet in one semi-final and the other semi-final according to the Bookmakers will be England v Croatia, and they are both level second-favourites,” revealed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“Now the spirit of Italia ’90 is sweeping the country and everyone is mapping out England’s route, which looks promising and Bookmakers believe that as it stands they would lose £50million on a Three Lions win, but as the rounds go on that could rise significantly again.”
