Latest England News - 3 Lions beat France at Wembley
England 2-0 France
England beat France for the first time since 1997 in an emotionally charged friendly fixture at Wembley. In truth the result wasn't important, due to the devastating Paris attacks just four days earlier, with both countries paying tributes to the 129 people who lost their lives.
England boss Roy Hodgson made seven changes following his side's disappointing 2-0 defeat in Spain, and the new-look outfit impressed, taking the lead in the first-half courtesy of a stunning strike from the man-of-the-match Spurs midfielder Dele Alli, who impressed on his first start for his country. Skipper Wayne Rooney then volleyed home a fine Raheem Sterling cross to give his troops a 2-0 victory in London.
Euro 2016 Betting
The European Championships is always a massive betting tournament and the betting was bigger than ever in 2012. The hot favourites, Spain, were victorious yet again as they successfully defended their trophy and in the process won their third consecutive major tournament. Meanwhile, England were typically knocked-out on penalties in the quarter-finals, but there were many positives to take from the tournament.
In October England became the sixth team in history to cruise through a European Championship qualification campaign with a 100% record after beating Lithuania 3-0 in their final Group E fixture. Goals from Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - with an own-goal sandwiched inbetween - gave Roy Hodgson's men their tenth win in a row, polishing off what has been a delightfully dominant campaign.
Euro 2016 will be held in France, with the tournament extended from 16 to 24 teams:
Euro 2016 Pots:
- Pot A: France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, England
- Pot B: Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Russia, Croatia, Ukraine
- Pot C: Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary
- Pot D: Turkey, Republic of Ireland, Iceland, Wales, Albania, Northern Ireland.
The Euro 2016 draw will take place on 12 December in Paris.
World Cup 2018 Odds
Defending champions Germany are the favourites to retain their trophy in the latest World Cup 2018 Odds. Joachim Low's men hoisted their fourth golden globe in Brazil, and will now be gunnging to draw level with the Samba Kings (5 trophies) in four years time.
Meanwhile the usual candidates are in the mix for glory, including Brazil, Argentina and Spain. Alternatively Belgium and Colombia, who both impressed in Brazil, are definitely worth keeping an eye on, whereas England are further back in the betting.
England Football Fixtures & Results
England headed into the Euro 2016 qualification campaign on the back of a shocking 2014 World Cup, which saw Hodgson's men eliminated after just two games.
However, The Three Lions have responded in superb style, winning all 10 of their Group E fixtures, during what was an extremely dominant qualification campaign. England were then beaten 2-0, but responded with a 2-0 victory over France in an emotionally charged friendly following the Paris attacks.
