England may have to wait another four years for World Cup glory
England fans taking the England World Cup odds will be crossing their fingers and their toes this summer in the hope that England can end the years of hurt for fans by winning the World Cup for the first time in 44 years. There is one obvious advantage that England had back then in 1966 and they are not going to enjoy that advantage for another eight years at least.
That advantage England had in 1966 is of course home advantage. In 1966 England hosted the World Cup and England are the current favourites to host the 2018 World Cup. This week David Beckham has submitted England’s bid to the FIFA president Sepp Blatter and all of the bookies now make England favourites to be handed the World Cup 2018, some even make England odds on favourites.
