Dreams Can Get Closer To Reality For England Today
If England beat Sweden today, Russia or Croatia on Wednesday and then France or Belgium next Sunday they win the World Cup. There are now six teams left in the tournament and only France and England are former winners. The last four world champions will not be winning this World Cup. England may never get a better chance to pick up the most famous trophy in sport even though in 1966 it was a different design. The 2018 World Cup will be won by a team from Europe after Brazil’s demise against Belgium and football really could be coming home as ENGLAND are now 7/2 with William Hill to win the World Cup.
The Colombia tie was a massive test that England passed and now they play Sweden in the quarter-finals. The Scandinavian outfit have a strong team ethic but lack a striker and much creativity in midfield. Both teams have scored in just two of Sweden’s lat 13 matches and they often get by with no more than one third of possession. When push came to shove they were brilliant in the crucial group match against Mexico and were seconds from holding Germany. However, England have got set pieces off to a fine art and Harry Kane is scoring penalties for fun. ENGER-LAND must be backed at 10/11 with Ladbrokes to beat Sweden today. A win sets up a semi-final match against Russia or CROATIA, 8/15 with Coral to qualify.
Even though the England match is being shown on BBC the racing on ITV has been brought forward as a contingency plan. Nobody knew if England would be playing today and which channel would broadcast the match so the live racing coverage will be done and dusted before 3pm. The feature is the Eclipse Stakes over 10 furlongs at Sandown. ROARING LION can confirm Derby form with Saxon Warrior and win this Group 1 contest and that outcome is 13/8 with Betfair.
