The Three Lions will be buoyed by their victory over Wales and Betway are enhancing the odds on Roy Hodgson's side topping Group B with back-to-back victories

England supporters have already been through a wide range of emotions at Euro 2016 despite their side only playing two games so far.

Russia's late equaliser and Daniel Sturridge's late winner against Wales could hardly have been more different for backers of the Three Lions and Roy Hodgson's side will be using their last-gasp win on match day two as a springboard for the rest of the tournament.

Slovakia are England's next challenge and the bookmakers have them as odds on shots for a third consecutive match at around 3/4 (1.75) at the time of writing but Betway are offering anyone yet to open an account the chance to back the favourites at 5/1 (6.0).

What's more, if Hodgson's men fail to win the match then Betway will credit all players who took up this offer with their stake back as a free bet.

To take up the 5/1 (6.0) simply sign up with Betway and back England at the usual price shown on site, if they justify their favouritism and win the game then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price.

With Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge coming off the bench to turn around the games against Wales there is a feeling that the two frontmen will be rewarded with starting spots against Slovakia, possibly at the expense of Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane who have failed to impress in France thus far and that breath of fresh air for a team that have at times, looked a little blunt in the final third will be music to the ears of England backers.

Such pace is sure to worry a Slovakia side that lost out to Wales on match day one but enhanced their chances of making the knockout stages with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Russia in their last game. Given their opening defeat Jan Kozak's men will know they will most likely need to take something from this game and will need to show plenty of attacking intent of their own.

Nevertheless, if England can restrict the influential Marek Hamsik then they will feel confident of securing another three points and ensuring the best possible draw for the last 16.

5/1 (6.0) quotes for those yet to sign up with Betway certainly look an appealing option given how impressive the Three Lions were in the second half on Thursday. Reproduce a performance of that calibre and surely another win would follow in Saint-Etienne.
