England 2-5 to progress after comeback success
ENGLAND remain 12-1 with Blue Square and Paddy Power to win Euro 2012 following their dramatic 3-2 Group D win over Sweden on Friday night.
Danny Welbeck’s winner after Theo Walcott had equalised saved England from a disastrous defeat.
Andy Carroll had given them a perfect start but Olof Mellberg’s unlikely brace put the Three Lions in huge trouble and they were out to 13-1 on Betfair for maximum points before their great escape.
Roy Hodgson’s comeback kids are now 2-5 with Ladbrokes to qualify for the knockout stages and they need a draw against joint-hosts Ukraine on Tuesday to qualify for the quarter-finals. However, defeat would almost certainly see them on the first plane home.
England are 2-1 with Ladbrokes to claim first spot in the group with
France at 4-6 and Laurent Blanc’s side are ahead on goal difference
with Les Bleus 1-100 to reach the last eight.
France were cut to 15-2 to win the Euros after they beat Ukraine 2-0
thanks to goals from Jeremy Menez and Yohan Cabaye. The game had been delayed for 50 minutes after a thunderstorm and torrential rain which saw the players taken off.
