We’re getting to the end of the 2018 World Cup group stage, with England having shortened in the outright betting since the tournament began.

The Three Lions are now 11/2 third favourites to win the tournament, with bet365 making them the likeliest team to reach the World Cup final out of all the teams in the bottom half of the draw.

The top half of the draw seems a tougher ordeal, with France and Uruguay having already made it to the quarter finals although they will now face each other in what should be a captivating affair.

Croatia are also 11/2, with Belgium 6/1 and then there is a big jump up to Uruguay at odds of 14/1, with Colombia trading at 18/1.
