England second favourites for World Cup after penalty drama

England are now second favourites for the World Cup after they booked their place in the quarter-finals after beating Colombia on penalties.

The Three Lions were held to a 1-1 draw in Moscow as an injury time header from Yerry Mina levelled an earlier penalty from captain Harry Kane.

Now England are into the last eight where they will face Sweden, after which it will be Russia or Croatia in the semi-finals.

Bookmakers are now betting that it will be an England v Brazil final later this month, with Gareth Southgate’s men now second favourites behind the Samba nation – who remain favourites.

England are now 4/1 along with France from 11-2, just behind Brazil at 11/4.

“A rare penalty shoot-out success for England means the side marches on to a quarter-final match against Sweden that Gareth Southgate’s men will be favourites to win, and move one step closer to a World Cup triumph that will spark the biggest ever payout to patriotic punters,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
