England Defensive? 12/1 To Be Tournament’s Top Scorers

William Hill have almost £1 million liabilities on England winning the Euros and after Friday’s thrilling victory over Sweden, look like they will at least qualify for the quarter finals – meaning that by the time they kick off against Ukraine, that liability could well be into seven figures. England are 2/7 to qualify from Group D and 2/1 to win the group. The Three Lions are 10/1 to win the tournament.

After their one goal apiece against Sweden Danny Welbeck and Andy Carroll are both 3/1 to be England’s leading scorers at the Euros, while with four goals already, England are 12/1 to be the tournament’s leading scorers. Wayne Rooney is 1/20 to return against the Ukraine and Hills make his 2/1 that he scores one goal, 10/1 two and 33/1 three or more.

“England threw off the defensive shackles that Roy Hodgson’s sides have shown in the past and the last 20 minutes showed that England can attack with the best and we think they could now prove a few people wrong (including Laurent Blanc) and be the tournament’s top scorers,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Despite the victory, John Terry did not have his best game in an England shirt and he is 9/2 to fail to start against Ukraine while James Milner is 9/4 to be dropped to the bench.
