The World Cup winners were in fine form as they saw off Low's struggling side and they are now favourites to win the tournament in its maiden year

France are the new favourites to win the Nations League after their 2-1 win over Germany on Tuesday night.

Les Bleus fell behind early on thanks to a Toni Kroos penalty but Antoine Griezmann’s second half brace means SportPesa have made them 5/2 (3.50) to lift the trophy in its inaugural edition.

That victory puts the world champions four points clear at the top of Group A and they also know that a point away at the Netherlands next month will see them qualify for the Nations League Finals.

Previously it was Spain who were favourites to take the crown, but they have now been pushed out to 3/1 (4.0) after losing 3-2 at home to England in their only Nations League match in this international break.

That was La Roja’s first competitive home loss for 15 years and the first time ever they have conceded three goals at home, which leaves Group A4 in the balance ahead of next month’s fixtures.

The Three Lions also drew 0-0 in Croatia to put themselves just two points behind Spain and still in the running for the Finals, with Gareth Southgate's men 11/1 (12.0) to keep up their good form by going all the way.

Belgium can be backed at 16/5 (4.20) thanks to their win over Switzerland (40/1) putting them top of Group A2, but the Red Devils still need to avoid defeat in Lucerne next month to top the group.

Portugal enjoyed a thrilling 3-2 win in Poland to make it two wins from two in Group A3 and the Euro 2016 champions are 7/1 (8.0) in the outright market, with group rivals Italy – who also beat Poland to relegate them – at 33/1 (34.0).

Available at 40/1 (41.0) are the Netherlands, who must beat France and avoid defeat in Germany to even qualify for the Finals, whilst Croatia are flirting with relegation and sit at 50/1 (51.0).
