England's Odds To Win The World Cup Are Slashed As Nation Believes It's Coming Home

England's Odds To Win The World Cup continue to be trimmed by bookmakers as they have got people believing that 'it's coming home'. The imagination of the nation appears to have been captured by the team's progress to the quarter-finals and they are now as short as 4/1 to win the World Cup. Can they do it? We take a look.

World Cup Winner Odds

England won their first two group games of a World Cup for the first time since 1982 as they overcame limited Tunisia and Panama sides, before a second-string team lost 1-0 to Belgium in a match that resembled nothing more than a dead rubber.

Finishing runners up in Group G appears to have worked out well for Gareth Southgate's men as they appear to be in the 'easier' side of the draw, starting with a tense penalty shoot-out win over Colombia in the last-sixteen.

The Three Lions next take on Sweden and they are odds on for that, with many pundits already looking ahead to a semi-final against either Croatia or a potentially politically charged clash with tournament hosts Russia.

Croatia would appear to be the most dangerous team left in England's side of the draw as they are technically excellent, although England did beat them 4-1 and 5-1 during qualifying for the 2010 World Cup. More recently, England drew 1-1 with Russia at Euro 2016.

Odds To Win The World Cup

Should England do the unthinkable and reach a first World Cup final since they won the competition in 1966, a final against Brazil could lie in wait.

Brazil are 11/4 favourites to win the World Cup for a sixth time with Paddy Power, and they are favourites to get the better of Belgium in their quarter-final.

There is then the mouth-watering prospect of Brazil taking on France in the semi-finals. The French are unbeaten in three World Cup meetings with Brazil since 1958, although the Brazilians have won their two most recent head-to-head meetings in friendlies.

France, the 1998 World Cup winners, are 4/1 with Betfred, although they must first get past Uruguay, who are looking to win the World Cup for a third time following their success of 1930 and 1950.
