Yes, there is another game on Monday, and, in reality, it is a very important game for England.
The winner of this game will put themselves in a wonderful position of qualifying for the knock-out stages, with four points probably enough to finish second in Group D.
- BEST BET : Get on the score draw 1-1 at 6/1 with Ladbrokes – it won’t last long.
A draw will do no favours for either team but would be a superb result for the Three Lions, whatever result they achieve against France.
Due to Ukraine’s position as the host nation they will have a partisan crowd on their side, which could tempt a few punters in to taking the 8/5 with Bet365 for a home win, but remember, this is a side that haven’t played a competitive international since 2009.
They have played a large number of friendlies over the last couple of years but even those results have hardly covered them in glory.
They are an inexperienced side, who may just flounder under the pressure of an expectant public, therefore a Sweden win looks a solid play around 2/1 (William Hill).
Sweden netted in all 10 of their qualifiers for Euro 2012, scoring more than once in eight of these games, meaning that you expect them to be able to break down Ukraine at some point here. Sweden to win to nil has been popular with Paddy Power at 7/2.
Another bet that has been targeted by punters has been for a couple of Sweden players to score first. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has bagged 29 international goals, is a player that has the ability to light up a tournament like this and he has seen money wagered on him to score first at 6/1 with William Hill.
Sunderland set-piece merchant Seb Larsson has also been backed with Hills to the extent that they have cut his price from 20/1 into 16/1 to open the scoring.
