England bouncing after beating Spain 3-2 despite being chalked at 5/1 for the match
England supporters went to Andalusia more in hope than expectation on Monday night, although the Three Lions produced an outstanding first-half performance to storm into a 3-0 lead against Spain.
A stout defensive display in the second half meant that Gareth Southgate’s side came away with a 3-2 victory and the bookmakers were left paying out to punters who had lumped on at 5/1.
BetVictor were impressed enough by England to make them 8/1 to win the UEFA Nations League although it should be borne in mind that they did lose at home to Spain recently and a goalless draw in Croatia gives La Roja a chance to edge out their rivals.
Indeed, Spain are the 3/1 favourites to win the competition despite this reverse, while Belgium and France are trading at similar prices and also look set to be reaching the last four of the competition.
Portugal look like the fourth team who are going to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition, with odds of 8/1 that the European champions win the tournament.
England are 7/1 to win Euro 2020 and it appears that Gareth Southgate is along the right lines with the development he is making with this group of players.
After reaching the semi-final stage of the 2018 World Cup, the manager is now blending in more young players and surely they will be among the main protagonists.
