Germany and Portugal made it through to the knockout stages of the Euros at the expense of Denmark and pre-tournament third favourites Holland. Initially offered at 13/2 the Dutch were very underwhelming all tournament and that did not change against Portugal who are now 13/2 to win the tournament, while Germany are 9/4 joint favourites with Spain.
Rather than battle as they did in the World Cup, the Dutch capitulated in every game that they played in and we do not have to worry about the half a million liability we racked up on them, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. Worryingly, however, Portugal and Germany both leave us with large six figure payouts so were not out of the woods just yet.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored two to put his side through and William Hill make him 4/1 to be the Euros top scorer and more importantly, he is 1/2 to pip Lionel Messi to the Ballon DOr with the Argentinian 13/8.
