The Three Lions ensured that their perfect start to the Euro 2020 qualifiers continued when they thumped Montenegro to the tune of 5-1 in Podgorica last night, Gareth Southgate’s men falling a goal behind early in proceedings but providing the travelling fans with a perfect response with five goals in reply. The creativity of Ross Barkley coupled with the leadership of captain Harry Kane and drive of Raheem Sterling ensured that the result was never in doubt and the World Cup semi-finalists collected all three points with relative ease.
This emphatic win came on the back of a 5-0 thrashing of the Czech Republic in England’s opening qualifier on Friday evening and on the back of these huge wins, the bookmakers have shortened the odds on the Three Lions winning next summer’s European Championships to 5/1, making them second favourites behind market leaders France at 7/2 with William Hill Bookmakers.

France made it through to the final of the 2016 European Championships where they lost to Portugal, however they made amends when winning the World Cup in Russia last year and the bookmakers clearly feel that they can go one better than their last Euro-showing by lifting the trophy this time around.
Of the other home nations, Wales are 66/1 to win the competition while Northern Ireland are a 250/1 shot and Scotland as much as 2000/1 with some bookmakers.
