THE 3 Lions have already got one foot already at Euro 2020.
Qualification has just about being confident because the 5-1 mauling of Montenegro again in March, with Gareth Southgate’s facet strutting their method to subsequent yr’s finals.
We’re going to move so far as announcing it is been a walkover, with England hammering 26 targets in simply six video games and best tasting defeat in that Prague fact Czech.
They are again within the acquainted atmosphere of Wembley for this one and England simply do not lose right here in qualifying video games.
As such they are a tiny 1/14 to win the sport.
Except you have got a spare grand mendacity round to chuck on and make your self 70 quid, enjoying that marketplace is a whole waste of time.
Gazing this fearless younger England crew is not the chore of a decade in the past and you’ll be able to make certain that Southgate could have them enthusiastic about getting the issues they wish to safe qualification on house soil.
The entire worth is within the targets and if you wish to have a major flutter at the recreation, that is the method to play.
The 3 Lions have hit 5, 4 after which 5 once more of their video games on English soil all the way through this qualification marketing campaign – and as we discussed previous have been five-star once more in March’s opposite fixture.
You’ll be able to get 17/10 on 5 or extra targets within the recreation, or for the extra bold of you 5/2 on England scoring five-plus.
Talking of that, we would not suggest you chase the each groups to attain which is at a delectable having a look 7/Four on paper.
Montenegro drew a clean towards Kosovo and Czech Republic at the street, even though historical past buffs will bear in mind they did web when final visiting England in 2013.
Regardless of England’s defence having a look shaky a couple of instances on this marketing campaign, we are glad to again them to win this one to nil and e book their position in Euro 2020 with a powerful victory.
Marcus Rashford is beginning to in finding his groove for each membership and nation, with 5 targets in his final seven.
Harry Kane is a small value to web as ever, so position your accept as true with in Rashford at a far tastier 3/1 to open the floodgates at Wembley within the absence of Raheem Sterling.
SunSport’s perfect bets

QUALIFICATION for the protecting Euro champions is not but confident.
And this can be a must-win recreation for Portugal, who’re only one function forward of Serbia in Staff B with Ukraine already at the aircraft for subsequent summer season’s finals.
It kind of feels unthinkable that the International locations League winners may not make it. Uefa bigwigs should be anxious.
However their marketing campaign has been suffering from quite a few stunning performances, together with a wasteful commute to Ukraine the place they piled in 22 pictures.
All that effort to lose 2-1.
If they are shot-shy once more again on house soil towards whipping boys Lithuania then boss Fernando Santos can be sweating over his place.
While there may be lots at stake then for the Portuguese, the guests need to end a quite horrendous marketing campaign on a top.
Lithuania had been the Staff B whipping boys, conceding 19 in seven video games while choosing up only a solitary level.
Within the opposite fixture Cristiano Ronaldo teed off in Vilnius, single-handedly propelling Portugal to a 5-1 win with 4 targets of his personal.
And the one logical trail to observe is CR7 to do it once more.
When Portugal want a hero, no person steps up relatively like Ronaldo – and also you simply know he’d love the ones headlines.
He is were given seven in his final 4 global fits, while present process a three-game ‘drought’ for Juventus.
Again him to attain two or extra at 3/Four and watch the cash roll proper in.
Portugal have not completed issues simply on this qualifying marketing campaign and we are not satisfied they’ll have the entirety all their very own means.
Lithuania don’t have anything to lose and we adore each groups to attain at a large 13/5.
And to capitalise on that, Portugal to win with Lithuania netting a comfort is a large 3/1. There may be your Thursday evening money-maker, 40 suds from a tenner.
SunSport’s perfect bets
Cristiano Ronaldo to attain two or extra: 3/4
Each groups to attain: 29/10
Portugal to win and each groups to web: 16/5
Cyprus vs Scotland – Saturday, 2pm
THE Scots simply need this qualifying nightmare to finish.
Disregard that they thrashed San Marino final day trip – each skilled global crew must.
There is a very actual risk that the Tartan Military may not be at Euro 2020 with their best trail to the general now via subsequent yr’s International locations League playoffs.
Momentum is not in reality a subject with the ones video games miles away in March, however Steve Clarke will need his facet to finish the crowd phases on a top notice.
Cyprus move into the sport forward of the Scots in Staff I, which is all that must be mentioned concerning the guests hapless marketing campaign.
The house facet have received two in their final 3, together with an attention-grabbing 2-1 victory in Kazakhstan.
They are no pushovers and we will be able to’t in reality perceive why Scotland move right into a dead-rubber as heavy 21/20 favourites.
It is true that they have got received on each aggressive talk over with to Cyprus up to now – however the final one was once ahead of the Berlin Wall got here down.
In different phrases, take a look at the present shape as a substitute.
Scotland have misplaced 3 in their 4 away fits on this crew to nil, failing to web towards Belgium, Russia and Kazakhstan.
They have conceded ten targets and infrequently regarded a risk going ahead.
Cyprus will have been thrashed via Russia final day trip, however that was once a recreation the guests needed to win to safe qualification.
Do not you dare consider placing your hard earned on a Scottish victory.
With the shackles off we are anticipating a good few targets on this one – and over 2.Five targets at 6/Five is a thieve.
That is came about in seven of Scotland’s 8 qualifying fits, so steer clear of the end result marketplace in any respect prices.
Pondering somewhat bit out of doors of the field, we additionally just like the evens shot on there to be a function in every 1/2.
Of their 4 house video games on this pageant Cyprus have both ranking or conceded within the opening twenty mins. Get on.
SunSport’s perfect bets
Over 2.Five targets in Nicosia: 6/5
A function scored in each halves: 8/11
Azerbaijan vs Wales – Saturday, 5pm
THIS is the massive one for Ryan Giggs.
The Euro 2016 surprise-package have made an actual hash of qualifying up to now.
Dropped issues towards Hungary, Croatia and Slovakia have left the Dragons 4 issues adrift of that coveted second-spot.
However crucially, they have got a recreation in hand to near the space and arrange a possible showdown with the Hungarians in Cardiff on November 19.
A draw right here and a win in that recreation must nonetheless see them via, however Giggs will be expecting not anything rather then 3 issues.
Azerbaijan got here to Wales again in September and have been mightily unfortunate to go away empty passed.
They defended resolutely, attacked with function at the counter and located the online after forcing a mistake from the Welsh backline.
A undeniable Gareth was once readily available to Bale his facet out of hassle on that instance.
Bale is struggling with a calf harm – however such is the magnitude of this one Wales are able to possibility Madrid’s wrath and play him in Baku.
The hosts had been crushed 5-1 via Slovakia and 3-1 via Hungary previous in Staff E.
On paper, that is Wales’ to lose and qualification nonetheless being in their very own fingers needs to be their motivation.
We think them to return again with all 3 issues – however now not with no scare alongside the best way.
Azerbaijan have netted in all in their qualifying house fits they usually may not merely pack 11 males in the back of the ball.
As such we like the 11/Eight on each groups netting. In truth, that is massive.
Croatia conceded right here and we will be able to’t go away on my own a value that massive. It is a actual cash maker, turning your tenner in £23.75.
If you are searching for a goalscorer, Harry Wilson is a cracking 13/2 to open the scoring.
The on-loan Liverpool winger were given again among the targets for Bournemouth towards Newcastle and has a addiction of netting impressive targets when it issues maximum.
SunSport’s perfect bets
Each groups to attain in Baku: 11/8
Wales to win: half of
Harry Wilson to attain first: 6/1

He needs to finish the process he began, and who can blame him?
O’Neill has labored wonders with this squad of avid gamers and it is a testomony to him that they have got an opportunity of qualification from a bunch containing Germany and Holland.
Two away defeats at the spin to that heavyweight pair has derailed the Euro 2020 bandwagon rather, however Northern Irish supporters can be buoyant again at Windsor Park.
They have been overawed via Germany right here in September ahead of being cruelly denied via a past due 90th minute winner for the Dutch in Rotterdam.
As you would be expecting, the guests are massive favourites to make it 5 wins at the spin and safe their position in subsequent yr’s finals.
The two/Five on a Holland victory could be very harsh at the house facet, although the Oranje are lately in such glowing shape.
Belarus controlled to web towards them or even with Virgil Van Dijk marshalling the defence, they are now not water-tight.
Northern Eire in fact controlled to breach it in that Rotterdam heartbreak.
So why is each groups to web so giant at 11/10? Beats us – that is the wager to be on.
We will see this being a good affair and reckon Northern Eire will wish to dangle the guests till the smash ahead of pushing for the win.
There may be worth on going for a draw at half-time, Holland win at the 1/2 time/complete time marketplace. That is 27/10.
