England are through to the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990 and fans are daring to dream that football might finally be coming home. They take on Croatia on Wednesday night in Moscow and the Three Lions are the 11/8 favourites to secure victory and surge into the final. However, bookmakers are promoting far more attractive odds to new customers. Betfair is offering 50/1 on England to beat Croatia in a bid to drum up business. You can only bet a maximum of £1, and it will be paid out in free bets if Gareth Southgate’s men are successful.
Betfair is also offering 50/1 on France to beat Belgium in the other semi-final, which takes place on Tuesday. If you fancy Roberto Martinez’s team to get the better of Les Bleus, you can get enhanced odds of 60/1 on Belgium to beat France at Betfair. Those are both huge prices when you consider that France are 31/20 to win it and Belgium are 21/10.
