Odds cut again for England to win the World Cup despite Belgium loss
Latest outright tournament odds
England’s odds of winning the World Cup have been cut for the second time in a week, despite their 1-0 loss to Belgium last night.
The Three Lions are now considered the 7/1 fourth-favourites for the tournament following confirmation of their potentially easier route to the final.
Gareth Southgate’s side will now face Colombia in the last-16 ahead of a prospective meeting with Sweden or Switzerland in the quarter-finals.
Brazil remain the 10/3 favourites for the World Cup after they topped Group E by collecting seven points from nine. They sit just ahead of Spain (4/1) and Belgium (13/2).
Croatia have been the team of the tournament for many people so far and have been cut into 11/1 ahead of Argentina, Portugal and Colombia, as a result.
“If England can beat Colombia in their last-16 match, in theory they would face an easier path to the semi-finals, so there could well be a silver-lining to the defeat in Kaliningrad, and Gareth Southgate’s men are now fourth favourites to go all the way,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
