Harry Maguire dominating goal scoring betting in a World Cup semi-final

There’s a headline you’d never expect to read - but the most backed player to score anytime tonight is England’s centre-back ‘Slabhead’ Harry Maguire.

The Leicester man opened the scoring at 33/1 against Sweden in the last round and has come perilously close to scoring in the group stages.

Despite Harry Kane banging goals in left, right and centre his namesake has accounted for 34% of bets to score anytime at 11/1.

Interestingly, John Stones has been the second most backed in the market, highlighting the success England have had from set pieces in the competition.

The Man City man scored twice against Panama and is 16/1 to add to his World Cup account tonight.

Harry Maguire has become a World Cup icon following numerous memes trending on Twitter, and if he manages to score again tonight propelling England into the World Cup final, his odds of 33/1 for BBC Sports Personality will plummet.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Every time England get a corner this evening the nation will hold their breath in anticipation, such is Southgate's team's proficiency at set-plays.

“Maguire and his big head are key to that, and he will be hoping to send the fans into another frenzy against Croatia.”
