Punters Russian away from England for 2018 World Cup

| 29.11.2010

Russia are now odds-on (4/5) with Ladbrokes to host the 2018 World Cup.

England have drifted to 2/1 having previously been as short as 8/13 to host the tournament.

Spain & Portugal are making late headway and in the run up to the announcement are 3/1 chances having been as long as 12/1 in the last week. Belgium & Holland are the rank outsiders at 33/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “England are now friendless in the market. We expect to see further support for Russia as the week goes on but can’t rule out the Iberian bid.”

Ladbrokes latest betting:
4/5 Russia
2/1 England
3/1 Spain and Portugal
33/1 Belgium and Holland
