With Sweden dispatched of, England are just two games away from history.
Who would have thought it… England are in the World Cup semi-finals. You are not dreaming. A 2-0 win over Sweden means that the Three Lions are in the last four for the first time since 1990.
The markets have reacted accordingly and England are now the shortest price they have been to win the World Cup since 1966. You can start believing
A semi-final against Croatia or Russia awaits and the winnable tie means that Gareth Southgate’s men are third-favourites still, but at a much shorter price than Saturday morning.
A best price of 13/5 is available for the second star to appear above the England crest and punters will no doubt make that price shorter in the coming days.
But some bookies are going just 5/2 that football finally comes home.
Who knows if it is coming home, but whatever happens, it’s certainly been a tournament to remember for those in white and red.
Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “It was surreal watching a World Cup quarter-final watching England that was so comfortable, but that’s exactly how it was as Sweden were dispatched. Gareth Southgate’s side are two games from immortality and the prices quoted for a World Cup win are the smallest they’ve been in 52 years.”
