Harry Kane slashed to third favourite to win Ballon d'Or

Harry Kane slashed to third favourite to win Ballon d'Or

The England captain is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the market.

Following England’s World Cup quarter-final success, Harry Kane has been cut to 10/1 third favourite to win the Ballon d’Or.

Pre-tournament you could have got 66/1 on the Spurs striker winning the individual award but with every win and every goal, his odds have tumbled.

If Kane were to win it, he would become the first Englishman in 17 years to claim the award, the last being Michael Owen in 2001.

Cristiano Ronaldo remains the odds on favourite at 1/5 after his continued superhuman goal-scoring exploits and Champions League success. However, if Kane was to be lifting the trophy next week along with collecting the golden boot, the 10/1 about him will be long gone.

Other World Cup stars have also seen their odds slashed with Kevin de Bruyne and Kylian Mbappe now 16/1 and Eden Hazard and Luka Modric now 20/1.

Oddschecker spokesman, George Elek ‘Either Ronaldo or Messi have won the award every year since 2008 and it will take something remarkable for that trend to be broken.

If Harry Kane somehow manages to lead England to World Cup glory, and continues to score at will for Spurs, his name will certainly be in the mix.'
