The line-up for the 2018 World Cup finals is complete and England will take their place against Sweden and have been cut further in the outright market as a result of their victory over Colombia.

dabblebet now make England 9/2 (5.50) to win the competition in their latest World Cup betting odds and they'll be favourites to progress in the next round.

It was the Three Lions' first victory in the knockout stages of a major tournament since 2006 but they needed penalties to achieve the feat after a late equaliser from Yerry Mina in injury time cancelled out Harry Kane's second half opener.

England were a general 6/5 (2.20) chance before kick-off in Moscow after it was confirmed that James Rodriguez wouldn't be fit to start the match. The 2014 Golden Boot winner was certainly a huge miss and could only watch on from the stands.

American referee Mark Geiger was the busiest man on the pitch, dishing out seven cautions in normal time, five of which went to the South American side.

After conceding to Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stages, the Three Lions looked set for a clean sheet until Mina headed in a corner in the dying minutes and forced extra time.

The additional 30 minutes passed without troubling the scorers and so the tie was decided by penalties.

England had only won one of their previous seven shootouts in major competitions but Jordan Pickford's save from Carlos Bacca coupled with Eric Dier's fifth spot kick was enough to see England through.

Kane's notched his sixth goal in normal time making the England captain even shorter in the Golden Boot market.

With main rival Romelu Lukaku failing to find the net in Belgium's thrilling 3-2 win over Japan, the Spurs striker is now just 4/11 (1.36) with dabblebet to be crowned the leading marksman with a maximum of three games remaining.

Brazil are frontrunners to crowned champions at 5/2 (3.50) ahead of their quarter final clash with the Red Devils.
