England looking good for Euro 2017 semis
Check out our 11/2 best bet for England v France
After winning Group D with a 100% record, scoring 10 and conceding just 1, England Women now face a stern test of their Euro 2017 credentials when they take on France in Deventer this Sunday.
Mark Sampson’s Lionesses cruised through the group stages and although England have not beaten France in almost 30 years, they’re now in a better place than ever to end that record.
Our NAP of the match is England Women to Win and Both Teams to Score at 11/2, but you can find even more tips for this quarter-final clash below.
Shakey defence should lead to goals
France have not been that solid defensively, having conceded in their last two group games in the competition, and it’s those defensive frailties that may see them struggle against the Lionesses.
They should consider themselves fortunate to still be in the competition, after having to come back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Switzerland in their final group game. A defeat in that match would have seen the Swiss progress in their place.
England have an abundance of brilliant attacking players, but France do too, so the 6/5 on offer for Both Teams to Score looks generous, but the 6/4 price for England to Win in 90 minutes could be a bit tight considering the magnitude of the game.
Lioness striker can deal killer blow
Jodie Taylor has taken Euro 2017 by storm so far and there’s no doubt England Head Coach Mark Sampson will picking the Arsenal striker to lead the Lionesses front line against the French this Sunday.
Having scored a hat-trick against Scotland and netted against Spain, her confidence will be sky high and she can deliver the killer blow that will finally put an end to England’s poor record against their European rivals.
Whoever wins this Sunday evening clash is certain to become the new favourites to win Euro 2017 outright, after previous favourites Germany were shockingly knocked out by Denmark, so it’s all to play for in Deventer.
