England joint-second favourites to triumph in Russia as they prepare for Wednesday's semi-final
England are through to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, with the Three Lions now 13/5 to win the tournament.
It was a strangely routine 2-0 win over Sweden during Saturday’s last eight clash, with goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli ensuring there were no real scares even if Jordan Pickford produced an immense performance.
England winning this World Cup is a very real prospect after this latest win, with bet365 offering 13/5 at a time when Croatia and Russia were drawing 1-1 in the match to determine who would be facing the Three Lions on Wednesday.
France are the 2/1 favourites to win the World Cup, with Belgium also 13/5 and one of those teams will be reaching the final but will it be England joining them?
Is football coming home? England are three games away from winning the 2018 World Cup, with the Three Lions beating Colombia on penalties on Tuesday night.
It appeared as though England were going to win the game 1-0 before Yerry Mina equalised for Los Cafeteros in injury time, while extra-time saw the game remain in the balance and we witnessed spot kicks.
Then came a penalty shootout and Jordan Henderson’s miss meant that England looked to be crashing out on spot kicks yet again, although some heroics from Jordan Pickford means that Gareth Southgate’s team now meet Sweden on Saturday.
Bet365 make England joint-second favourites to win the World Cup, with odds of 4/1 available that the Three Lions triumph and they are strong favourites to overcome Sweden this weekend.
Bet365 go 10/11 that England win the game in normal time and you can get just 2/5 that they qualify for the last four of the competition.
Brazil remain favourites at odds of 11/4, with the South American team in the supposedly tougher half of the draw and they will meet Belgium on Friday night.
Meanwhile, France are facing Uruguay for a chance to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup and they are a 4/1 poke.
Belgium are 6/1 and probably look the worst value considering their possible path to the final, while Croatia are also 6/1 and will fancy their chances of beating hosts Russia before facing England or Sweden.
Uruguay are a 16/1 poke and will hope that Edinson Cavani is available for the clash after sustaining an injury during a win over Portugal.
