SPORTSBOOK ODDS

Coral can report that England are the underdogs to qualify from a match at a major tournament for the time since facing Brazil in 2002 when they take on France on Saturday evening.

England are 21/20 with Coral to qualify from the tie, with France the odds-on favourites at 3/4. In the 90 minutes betting, Les Bleus are the 7/5 favourites, the draw is 11/4, while England are 2/1.

“This is the first time England have been the underdogs to qualify from a match at a major tournament since that defeat to Brazil at the 2002 World Cup,” said Coral’s John Hill. “It indicates what a tough challenge the Three Lions are faced with on Saturday evening.

“Despite being underdogs, strong patriotic support is arriving for Gareth Southgate’s men. Many punters believe they are going get the better of Les Bleus and keep their dream of lifting the trophy alive.”

With the quarter-final line-up now set, Brazil are the 7/4 favourites with Coral to lift the World Cup this year.

France are second best at 4/1, the England World Cup betting odds are 11/2, while Argentina and Portugal can both be backed at 6/1.

Other England World Cup betting odds after the win over Senegal include 11/10 for the Three Lions to make the semi-finals, as they did four years ago, and 11/4 to reach the final for the first time since 1966.
