England vs Croatia betting news: Bookies will get crushed if Three Lions win

England vs Croatia betting news

At the start of the tournament, it was suggested that the bookies would lose millions if England win the World Cup.

This was considered to be a fanciful prospect at the time with the Three Lions unlikely to win the World Cup with heavyweights such as Brazil, Spain, Germany and France involved.

Now we are just hours away from the second World Cup semi-final and England have a real opportunity to set up a Moscow meeting on Sunday with old rivals France.
