England Manager: Gareth Southgate
England Captain: Harry Kane
England Star Player: Harry Kane
The England international team has been at the centre of world football since 1872 when it was founded and is now governed by the FA. Over the years, England has fostered some great talents who have become known throughout the world, competing in Europe’s top leagues and going on to win major international competitions.
Despite all the great talent rising out of the country, England has been considered to underperform during these international football competitions, with disappointments coming in both the World Cup and the European Championships.
The current team brings new hopes for the coming decade, with young prospects such as Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, and Phil Foden already impacting elite competitions. History can tell us that a golden generation doesn’t guarantee success. A team yielding, Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney, Terry and many others fell at the decisive moment to prevent England from lifting a trophy.
England 2022/23 Betting
In 2022/23, there isn’t a great deal left for England to challenge for after their defeat to France in the 2022 World Cup. Instead, their focus will turn to the qualification matches ahead of them, providing entry into future tournaments.
Throughout the year, the main qualifiers will be centred around the European Championship, with the competition finals set to occur in 2024. This will include matches against Italy, Ukraine and Malta.
Looking at England’s upcoming qualifiers, Italy is the only side that looks to pose a real threat to England, but they are a team that failed to qualify for the previous World Cup. England is undoubtedly the favourite against sides such as Ukraine and Malta, with the betting odds likely reflecting this.
At BetUK, you can find the latest betting options for each football match England plays throughout the season, including their qualifiers. This includes outright options for both teams to score, competition winners, players to score anytime and live bets.
Betting on England in the World Cup
England’s 2022 World Cup ended in disappointment after a narrow defeat to France, where the star player and Captain, Harry Kane, put his all-important penalty over the bar.
Going into the competition, England was not filled with confidence, given their results in friendlies. Despite this, they managed to show promising signs throughout the competition that would spark optimism for the future.
Now that the 2022 World Cup has ended, England must wait until at least 2026 to get another shot. This is all dependent on the side being successful in their qualifiers. The England World Cup betting markets will be updated as future games come.
Betting on England in the European Championship
The UEFA European Championship has left a slightly bitter taste in the mouths of English fans, losing the final of the 2020 competition to Italy after a close call during the penalty shootout.
However, with a near taste of victory, this could leave the younger talents filled with optimism and motivation for the next tournament in 2024. Over the course of the 2022/23 season, England will be playing their qualifier matches against the likes of Italy, Malta and Ukraine. Each game will be available to bet on, with all the latest England odds offered on the outright and live betting markets.
Handicap betting can be a popular selection for international matches where England is matched against a weaker side such as Malta. Creating an advantage for the underdog side will improve the payout odds, as it would mean England would need to win by a certain number of goals for the bet to be successful.
Betting on England in the Nations League
England currently sits bottom of a relatively strong Nations League group, meaning they will not be progressing to the final stages of the competition.
With that being considered, England will need to wait until the 2024 Nations League to get promoted back to the top tier of the UEFA Nations League, football betting odds state that it's very likely for England to progress to the latter stages of the UEFA Nations League.
For any Nations League games that England has coming up, you can expect to find competitive odds for outright and live betting markets.
England Recent History
England’s run in major international tournaments has been a collection of highs and lows, with a lack of silverware in recent history. Their only world cup win was achieved in 1966, meaning many England fans are unfamiliar with the feeling of winning the world’s most desired prize.
Since then, the closest they have come is through their 2018 Semi-Final finish and their shortfall in the final of the Euro 2020 competition.
England Top Goalscorer Betting
Although England has an array of attacking outlets, who play in the biggest competitions such as the Champions League and the Premier League, their main man, Harry Kane, has proven himself as a goal-scoring threat. His statistics at club and international levels show how clinical he is as he’s become England’s top scorer of all time.
If you’re considering outright markets for tournament golden boot winners, Harry Kane could be worth a thought if the side is filled with attacking confidence. He's also a good option for England to grab the next goal in a game where they are on top.
England Top Assister Betting
Having developed such great talent, England is spoilt with creative midfielders and attacking players. Since the game of football has developed, even defensive players have evolved their attacking traits.
With players such as Reece James, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Luke Shaw, they have a real threat in wide positions, something Harry Kane will be thriving off. Of those players, Luke Shaw, Trippier and Walker tend to feature in the starting line-up more often, making it more likely for them to create assists.
Raheem Sterling, Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford offer a creative flair too, with the ability to create. If you’re considering England betting odds that include an individual player getting an assist, several names could contribute.
England Yellow Cards Betting
Under Gareth Southgate, England has created a relatively stable set-up enabling them to control games, prevent counterattacks and improve their overall defensive performance.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable to opposition counters, and in the event they are, it is typically the midfielders that need to take the cautioning. This can include Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips, who are known to occupy the deeper role in the midfield setup.
For in-play betting markets, the defensive midfielders and full-backs could be worth considering as they find themselves in vulnerable positions up against some of the world’s best attackers.
