England are 10/1 across the bookmakers to win next year's European Championships after finishing their qualification group with a perfect record following a straightforward 3-0 win in Vilnius last night.
Roy Hodgson's men are 33/1 to triumph in all ten of their qualification games for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and 11/4 to proceed through the group without defeat as they did in their Euro 2016 qualification campaign. Indeed, they should have a decent chance of doing just that, given that they don't have the toughest opposition in their group.
Competition for a place in the England squad for next year's European tournament is certain to be extremely fierce and leading bookmaker BetVictor have a market on who will manage to secure a place with the Three Lions for France next year.
BetVictor spokesman Charlie McCann said to Bookmakers.co.uk:
“Who will be on that plane to France next summer is fascinating with Hodgson having an embarrassment of riches in many positions and next month’s “friendlies” with Spain and France might be the last opportunity for some of the players to persuade the Three Lions’ boss that they should make the squad. Jonjo Shelvey has looked comfortable in the centre of England’s midfield yet is 2/1 to make the cut; that shows the strength in depth of this current England squad.”
