The Three Lions of England are poised to book a ticket for the next Fifa World Cup without dropping a point in their last four games
After a hard earned draw against Serbia and Montenegro in their last World Cup European qualifiers at the Podgorica City Stadium, Podgorica, England are odds-on to win their remaining qualifying matches. Should this happen, they will be making their fourteenth appearance at the Fifa World Cup.
Though, they queue behind Montenegro who sit atop Group H of European qualifying that parades Moldova, Poland, San Marino and Ukraine, Roy Hodgson's team is backed at a mouth watering 3/1 by Ladbrokes to win all of their remaining fixtures to reach next year’s competition billed for Brazil.
The 1966 World Cup winners have nicked in three wins and three draws from six previous games and will play as hosts in three games out of four remaining matches. Even at this, they are a 13/2 play to qualify for the 2014 mundial in what will be a repeat of what happened in 1974, 1978 and 1994 where they were missing from the World Cup.
And should they not make home advantage count against Moldova, Poland and Montenegro at the Wembley Stadium, they will give up a direct qualification for the 20th Fifa World Cup as group winners meaning they will advance to the play-offs either as one of the nine group runners-up or among eight best runners-up a quote that is backed at 9/2 by the same bookies.
